|“||Captain, Starfleet regulations clearly state that a commanding officer shall not lead an away mission into a presumably dangerous situation. In the event that something were to happen to him—
Dylyp... I know the regulations.
But yet you choose to disobey them? Most... illogical.
|— Dylyp Azeli and Jason Fredricks|
2409 ("Researcher Rescue")
Dylyp Azeli was a male Andorian Starfleet officer active who served as operations officer on the USS Leviathan. He held a deep respect for the Prime Directive, and took his duty to Starfleet very seriously. On several occasions, he was referred to as a "Vulcan" by Lucas Wells (and others), because of his strong reliance on logic and lack of emotion.[a]
Early life Edit
Starfleet Academy Edit
Dylyp graduated in 2408 and subsequently attended the after-party at Starfleet Academy's shuttlebay bar. He attempted to diffuse an argument between fellow cadets Jason Fredricks and Daniel Harvey, but was unsuccessful.
Early Starfleet career Edit
Service on the USS Leviathan Edit
In 2409, he was assigned to the Leviathan as the ship's new operations officer, replacing Charlie Morgan, who became the transporter chief. Dylyp accompanied an away team to a Starfleet research station and later Kassae IV to free hostages from the Gorn.
Dylyp remained aboard the Leviathan during Commander Jarek Davis' short tenure as captain. Davis had taken over for Jason, who had resigned as captain. Dylyp quickly developed a distaste for Davis' unorthodox method of running the ship, considering him to be reckless. He joined the rest of the senior staff in planning to relieve Davis of command, but Davis learned of their plan and locked all senior staff who would not pledge their loyalty to him in the brig. He assisted in retaking the ship from Jules Vanden, who had been left in command by Davis.
Following Phil Schrader's tragic suicide, Dylyp appointed Hannah Freeman, Will Darrow and Leo Anderson as the temporary co-chief engineers, to be replaced by Th'vol Olethla two days later. Later, Dylyp was forced to take command of the Leviathan when it fell under attack by B'vat's flagship, the IKS Worvig. Jason had frozen in fear, remembering how B'vat had outsmarted him several times previous, Tala Jones was stuck on the planet below, and Lucas Wells was not ready or willing to step in as commander, leaving Dylyp the next-in-line for command. B'vat spared the Leviathan, informing Dylyp that he would have "a little surprise waiting for [them]" the next time they encountered one another.
Two days later, Dylyp escorted Th'vol to Jason's quarters so they could meet one another. Th'vol's eagerness and promise to help the crew's morale surprised and impressed Jason, and he welcomed him aboard. When Dylyp and Th'vol turned to leave, Jason asked Dylyp to stay for a moment longer. He apologized, realizing he had been wrong in his outburst towards Dylyp on the bridge two days earlier. Dylyp agreed, simply saying, "Welcome back, sir."
Personality and appearance Edit
Dylyp stood at 188 cm and had a lean build of 79 kg.
Personal life and skills Edit
Dylyp was very devoted to logic and subduing of emotions, something he had learned from his grandfather. He followed Starfleet regulations rigidly, and was often stern toward those who did not do the same.
Jason Fredricks Edit
In 2409, they were reunited when Dylyp was assigned to the USS Leviathan under Jason's command. A man of principle, Dylyp usually referred to Jason as "captain" or "sir," even though Jason told him he could call him by his first name. He also objected to Jason going on a dangerous away mission to Kassae IV.

Notes and references Edit
- ↑ A running gag through the story is the fact that Dylyp acts much more like a Vulcan than an Andorian. Many characters reference this throughout the story.
