is a Federation starship tasked with civilian transport. It has a lighter crew complement than most Federation ships, and operates with a combined operations and command division (reflected by its special red and gold uniforms).Capt. Sheleth
The female Kasheeta
captain of the Paramaribo
. She works hard to earn the crew's trust. She can sometimes come across as being too impersonal or harsh, but she's trying to work on that.
Shelly doesn't want her crew to forget the military nature and inherent risk of serving in Starfleet, which is one reason she picked more militaristic blue-gray uniforms instead of the standard Federation uniform for her ship. The uniforms also combine 23rd
century colors, invoking the history of Starfleet.Lt. Cmdr. Ashley Rathipal:
A human and an old friend of Shelly's from the Academy. Her hometown of Paramaribo, not far from the busy Federation spaceport in Kourou, is the namesake for the ship, where she's the highest-ranking officer on the night crew. She wants to be a model officer and work with a variety of alien species.
Ashley is a talented athlete, especially in the high jump. She's transgender but doesn't want to make any changes to her body.Cmdr. M'Sam
(Sam): A male, unusually short Caitian
. He was insipred to join Starfleet by seeing M'Ress
serve as an operations officer on the Enterprise
under Capt. Kirk, but his talents are in the sciences. He doesn't have any desire to achieve the rank of captain, but he's the first officer on the Paramaribo
, and Sheleth's unusual sleep schedule leaves him in command on a regular basis during the day shift.
