Trivia Edit

In his author's notes StarSword explains some of the differences between the Masterverse version of Kanril Eleya and the version in his own Bait and Switch continuity. Most importantly, while she is a full captain, in the Masterverse she is still too junior for a command as large as a Galaxy-class starship (the Masterverse fully discards Star Trek Online's point that Starfleet was fast-tracking the promotions of promising officers).
