Dr. Selar (Dru Blair) (2373)

Selar was a female Vulcan Starfleet Officer who served in the 24th century, having been born in 2324 with the name T'Pas* (TNG novel: The Eyes of the Beholders). She was posted on the USS Enterprise-D as a doctor, and later promoted to chief medical officer on the USS Excalibur and the USS Excalibur-A.

*Note: Selar's tale in The Eyes Of The Beholders contradicts what has been established in Star Trek: New Frontier. In this continuity Selars original name was T'Para, and in her youth she was bonded to a bigot doctor called Sukat, whom later she divorced, and her rejection of Vulcan society was based on this experience. Later she adopted a blind andorian girl named Thala. It is also possible, that his former lifestory was somehow changed when she had Q-like powers (Q'uandary), and with this omnipotence she had somehow rewritten his personal past.

She has at least one brother, Slon, who is involved with a man named Sotok.(NF novel: Renaissance) One of her grandfathers served aboard the USS Intrepid during its tragic demise. (TNG comic: "The Modala Imperative")

In 2360, while working at Starfleet Medical, Selar investigated reports of an outbreak of the Romulan disease known as the Gnawing. At the behest of Admiral Uhura, Selar went on an undercover fact-finding mission behind the borders of the Romulan Star Empire with Benjamin Sisko and Tuvok in order to gain more information about the illness. (TLE novel: Catalyst of Sorrows)

The Enterprise

Selar served on the USS Enterprise-D from the years 2364-2371. In 2367, Selar was recruited by the Female Q, during the Q civil war to help heal the Q Continuum's wounded. She was briefly granted Q-like powers and was trained in their use by the human/Q hybrid, Amanda Rogers. (NF novel: 'Q'uandary)

In 2368, she was briefly in charge of medical matters aboard the Enterprise as Dr. Crusher was incapacitated by a Ferengi thought maker. (TNG - Intelligence Gathering comic: "Matters of the Mind")

In 2371, she took a leave of absence from the Enterprise in order to perform the pon farr, the Vulcan mating ritual, with her husband Voltak. Tragically, Voltak died in the midst of the Pon Farr, and Selar's mating urge was never fully sated. (NF novel: House of Cards)

The Excalibur

Renaissance.

Selar was assigned to the USS Excalibur as chief medical officer under the command of Captain Mackenzie Calhoun in the year 2373.

She was pursued romantically by the ship's Hermat chief engineer, Burgoyne 172, but Selar resisted the Hermat's advances. It was not until Selar was in the throes of a pre-mature Pon Farr and was rescued from the surface of the planet Zondar by Burgoyne, did the two give in to their passions. (NF novel: Martyr)

Selar became pregnant by Burgoyne, and attempted to raise the child, named "Xyon" after Captain Calhoun's son, alone on Vulcan. Burgoyne followed Selar to Vulcan where s/he fought for hir rights as Xyon's father. The two eventually decided to raise the child together, on USS Excalibur-A. (NF novel: Renaissance)

Due to Xyon's unique Vulcan/Hermat nature, he aged very rapidly, coming to full maturity in a matter of a few years.

By the year 2379, Selar was spending most of her off-duty time attempting to find a way to slow Xyon's rapid aging. (NF novels: After the Fall, Missing in Action)

Her obsession with this caused her to go insane, leading her to kidnap Lefler's newborn son along with a comatose Hermat. She, along with Soleta, went on a rescue mission to get the child back. Though successful, the mission led to her death. (NF novel: Treason)

Service History

An accomplished physician who trained under Dr. Beverly Crusher as part of the USS Enterprise medical staff from at least Stardate 42437.5 to 46830.1 (2365 to 2370). Sometime after that (cir. 2373) and two years before she signed aboard USS Excalibur Stardate 50923.1 approx. (cir. 2375), she left the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D) for Vulcan in response to the Pon farr urges. On Stardate 50924.5 she was aboard the newly refitted Ambassador Class USS Excalibur (NCC-26517) when it was launched from Spacedock

Personel History

One of the most important moments in Selar's life was the death of her mate, Voltak, during the early moments of their Pon farr joining. This premature disruption of the Vulcan mating ritual resulted in a delayed-reaction mating urge, which forced Selar to resume Pon Farr less that three years after the death of Voltak. Although Selar initially selected Captain Mackenzie Calhoun to act as her mate during her unexpected Pon Farr, she ultimately mated with a Hermat, Burgoyne 172. She subsequently became pregnant, and named the child Xyon, in honor of Xyon of Calhoun, the ostensibly late son of Captain Mackenzie Calhoun.

Other Information

Has the bedside manner of a black hole according to Captain Mackenzie Calhoun. Only other furnishings in her quarters on the Excalibur was a Shantzar, a Memory Lamp, a foot high, cylindrical, blue light (was extinguished, forever before her relationship with Burgoyne). Has a tendency to limit her world to her quarters and Sick Bay, on the Excalibur anyway. Once told Burgoyne that Vulcans chose their mates based upon a conscientious process of compatibility in thirty-seven different areas, ranging from social equability to opinions on matters of deep philosophical meaning. (Star Trek: New Frontier novels: Restoration)

It was discovered there were two Doctor Selars serving in Starfleet, one on the USS Excalibur and one on Federation Installation Nine. Ambassador Spock investigated and found the Selar serving on FI-9 was from another quantum reality and had been transported here with her son by accidentally using a prehistoric Vulcan 'stone' artifact. Having no way to return her to her proper universe, Ambassador Spock recommend leaving things as they were for the moment. (D'Sefet's Cat House, the logs of Federation Installation Nine)
