Star Trek Expanded Universe

Talath was the commanding officer of the USS Intrepid. (Star Trek: Intrepid)

Early life and career[]

Her full name was Leransilia sh'Talath, and her Starfleet service number was LT 774-5381, and she had level-10 security clearance.

Talath commanded the Intrepid for less than a year, replacing previous captain Walter Emick.

Intrepid was assigned to escort a colony fleet to the Charybdis Sector. Taleth was killed when her shuttle's guidance systems malfunctioned and Daniel Hunter shot it down rather than let it crash into the colony. ("Heavy Lies the Crown")


A decorated, by-the-book combat officer, Talath was not afraid to voice her dissatisfaction with Commander Hunter's performance as her first officer. Finding him inefficient and argumentative, she planned to have him replaced once the present mission was completed.

Talath was largely responsible for S'Ceris' current status with Starfleet. She brought him with her when she took command of the Intrepid and was her most trusted confidant.
