Alexander 'Aleck' Menke
A standard issue pistol is what he carries around, light and effective at dispatching anything that should come close enough. It's a quick-fire, easily reloadable pistol and he carries around specialized ammo to combat most situations. There's a small light on top of it for those dark encounters in the underground or should night fall.
A smallish dagger is fitted on his thigh for anything that dare come close enough, or should he miss the initial shots from his pistol. It's slick and straight as an arrow with both edges extremely sharpened for those quick slices and stabs. He's awfully quick with it, and has obviously used it before.
N/A (Gonna Ask a Question)
Brash and brutally honest, with a touch of witty sarcasm, traits many place upon Aleck Menke. There's nothing he wouldn't say to person short of calling them something beyond terrible and truly meaning it. Despite being honest, he likes to give the truth to people he doesn't know a little at a time, instead of going all out and calling them out for who they are. He is brutally honest, but there has to be a limit to which he speaks. Sometimes honesty isn't the best thing. Of course, Aleck is a man who likes to be himself, despite how odd that can be. He's an emotional man, and he makes bonds in his relationship quicker than a person should, which can end horribly should he let it. There's definitely not much in terms of seriousness (aside from his honesty) when talking to him, as he likes to take life as he would a dream, with the intention of living it as best he could before it ends. And that requires a touch of optimism and a relaxed mind to do.
Born to Anne Menke and Rodrick Menke, Alexander had parents that only a child could dream of. They were pretty damn perfect; their demeanor was relaxed enough and just that right amount of strict to where he could both rely on them and consider them best friends, really. They cared about their child and raised him to be the good guy, the nice guy, and the smart one. So, to be honest, life on the station was quite easy for him. Due to his parents connections, as they worked the higher-up jobs on the station, they had a rather large amount of visitors when time permitted it, so Aleck had quite a bit of friends in his younger years. School on the station was definitely a breeze for him, as his parents tended to teach him more than what he needed to know, and even though he didn't quite get it then, it settled in and helped quite a bit in his older years.
When choosing his vocation, due to his exceptional work in high school, Alec made a gutsy choice sticking with Robotics. His parents were more theoretical in their studies, but with him, Alec had to have things up front and hands on. Working with anything electronic was a passion of his and he couldn't pass up the opportunity of a job like that, especially since it needed quite a bit more in that jurisdiction. Engineering was a required to keep a ship maintained, but only certain aspects of it,
one of those aspects wasn't robotic engineering and so not many people have decided to take up the field, especially since it required a lot of hands on work and theoretical planning to accomplish anything remotely interesting or useful. However, most things that come out of any of the laboratories in the robotics room tend to benefit the station quite a bit.
And so that's how he grew up, with the thoughts of a scientist and the hands of an inventor. Inspiration has come and gone and many things have been accomplished because of what he and many others have done. And now, Earth apparently contains survivors after the catastrophe that destroyed it a century ago. Being the eager man that he is, he was among the ones who decided volunteering was a good idea. The equipment and skills he has are more than enough to benefit any scouting team he'd be put on, not to mention he's not that bad a shot.
Julianne Sato Menke
An odd thing to have on a doctor, but Julie makes sure to pack heavily with her somehow light weight shotgun, well... light enough for her to carry without dying of exhaustion on long treks--the recoil is still rather killer on the arms. She makes sure to use her ammo conservatively and waits until the last moment to shoot. Her timing is exemplary, something she's learned when touching and fixing up those wounds or anything else deleterious in the nick of time. She may not be as precise with a pistol, but the spray on shotguns helps loads with aim.
Julie carries around two military combat knives fastened to her boots. Just like the shotgun, they're rather large for a petite woman such as herself, but she can carry her weight and then some just as well as any man she works with. She makes an effort to do more than the average civilian woman, if not to prove to others, but to prove to herself she's stronger than she looks. The combat knives are ridged and extremely sharp, and since she has two, one is always expendable.

A daunting young woman, Julianne Sato is more intimidating than she is inspiring. Of course, she's definitely inspired many people with her early work along the way. Inspiration definitely isn't a hard thing to accomplish, but her goal wasn't to inspire others, it was to show them she's more than capable to do what she pleases, and if that required a bit of gruff, then so be it. Of course, Julianne is gentle and caring when the situation calls for it and her kindness does know no bounds, though it's very well hidden by her rough and stoic demeanor. She regards life as a battle and it's her goal to win it, but should a person need her assistance or if there's a person that's in danger of being left in the dust, Julie will more than likely sacrifice her well-being for the betterment of said person. In fact, Julie has quite a cruel policy in regards to herself: there'll be no one left behind should she have anything to say about it.
Her parents died at quite a young age to an unknown disease shortly after her 6th birthday. It was quite a terrible experiencing having her parents quarantined and then having herself put in a safe room and cleansed, then checked at least ten times a day. They died not too long after and she was found to be the carrier of this odd, malignant disease. However, the expertise of doctors then made sure she couldn't spread it to anyone else and with at least a year of work, they soon desecrated the disease that would threaten the whole station. And now that she was an orphan, life suddenly became harder than hell, especially since many of the other children were loath to play or even socialize with her. It didn't help that she was a quiet individual.
Soon, though, a couple decided that the young Asian girl, lonely playing in the corner, would be the greatest addition to their small family. So, Julie wasn't quite alone anymore in the world, now that Anne and Rodrick Menke had taken a large sacrifice and adopted her. And, she even had a new brother who didn't give a crap about her rather recent past. It was a miracle to her and that was when she raised herself to be a stronger person, a stronger individual who would show the world having her parents die and being afflicted with a pernicious disease wouldn't stop her from reaching her dreams. Being a doctor was among such dreams, deciding she wanted a way to eradicate whatever would kill someone she cared for or a person who had others that cared deeply about them. It was noble of her to want to keep others from the pain she endured, something her new parents were proud of her for.
That was exactly what she became, one of the best doctors in the division and somewhat of a prodigy when it came to medicine, even at an early age. She was an extremely hard working woman and tackled even the hardest of problems with extreme fervor. This new project that Olympus was taking on was one of those daunting goals that she loved to accomplish. She was soon drafted to help the scouts and other partners that accompanied her should they find themselves in a rather sticky situation. And she was more than equipped to combat anything that would love to just gnash their teeth into anyone she accompanied.
((Okay, some clarification if you don't mind: are the rankings Navy based or something else, since we're in space. And is it okay to play two characters? Because if I can't, then I'll take one out. ))
