|Full Name:||Myra Elbrey|
|Marital Status:||Relationship (Henglaar)|
|Previous Assignment:|| Tactical Psychologist,|
|Final Assignment:||Counselor, USS Excelsior|
Counselor Myra Elbrey was rescued by Henglaar's away team from the Devonshire in the Grey's first attack on the Federation near the end of the Dominion War. Elbrey, a member of the telepathic Betazoid race, took her role as counselor seriously, often provoking crew members to look at their predicaments from alternative perspectives.
Though Elbrey was generally perceived by her crew mates aboard Excelsior as very serious, she actually had a devilish sense of humor. The crew member to whom she revealed this the most wass Henglaar, with whom she shared a special friendship. As the two officers who cared for the crew's mental and physical well-being, they had much in common, and often had only each other to turn to for advice and support. They would also spend time together on the holodeck. (HF 2.01 - "Refugees") Eventually, the friendship between Elbrey and Henglaar developed into a romance (HF 6.02 - "Dancing in the Dark").
Little is known about Elbrey's life prior to joining Starfleet, although while counseling Artim Ibanya, she mentioned that she had worked for her father for three years during her childhood, but advised Artim to avoid a similar experience, implying it was an unhappy one for her. She also told Artim that she "practically had to run away from home" in order to join the Academy. (HF 2.06 - "To The Stars") She has a dog, Mr Scott. (HF 2.08 - "Coward's Death")
Elbrey taught General and Tactical Psychology at Starfleet Academy, including telepathic interpretation for non-verbal species. When the Dominion War broke out, Starfleet needed more telepaths in the field. Elbrey chose reassignment aboard the USS Rutledge, as a tactical psychologist with the rank of Lieutenant. (HF 1.02 - "Enemy Unknown, Part 2")
Aboard the USS Rutledge
In 2375, She was stationed aboard the Rutledge when attacked by the Grey during the Battle of Lapolis. During the attack, Elbrey was able to protect herself telepathically from the Grey's psionic attack. She was rescued by the Away Team from the Devonshire, which was commanded by Captain Ian Quincy Knapp. (HF 1.01 - "Enemy Unknown, Part 1")
Aboard the USS Excelsior
Elbrey joined Knapp's crew as Counselor when he was assigned command of the Excelsior in 2377, accepting a promotion to Lieutenant Commander. (HF 1.02 - "Enemy Unknown, Part 2") During the Battle of Devron, Elbrey helped in the questioning of a captured Grey footsoldier. (HF 1.03 - "Enemy Unknown, Part 3")
Elbrey was chosen by Commander Joseph Johns to serve temporarily as his First Officer on the USS Independence. After the Independence went through a time anomaly, Elbrey went with Johns on an away mission to the RMS Titanic to investigate the appearance of futuristic technology on the ocean liner. Elbrey was able to shoot Lightoller, who was about to kill Commander Johns. Elbrey was killed when the Independence self-destructed to destroy Lightoller's timeship. The timeline was restored in the explosion and Elbrey had been left with the impression that the survivors of the Titanic had been relocated in the present time. (HF 1.04 - "Two Hours")
Elbrey went on an away team to the an unknown vessel in a successful effort to free the Excelsior from the effects of an inter-dimensional doorway that was opened by the vessel. (HF 1.05 - "Perihelion")
In early 2378, Elbrey helped test out a new Dominion device designed to help fight against the Grey, successfully testing it against Grey battleship. She testified about Knapp's state of mind in the subsequent tribunal regarding the death of the Dominion's ambassador on that mission. During this timeframe, she also told him that he needed to move on regarding the death of his brother, or else it would follow him where ever he goes. (HF 2.03 - "Old Wound")
She later went on leave with Henglaar to Risa, where Henglaar's condition that delayed the onset of puberty expressed itself. During the Encke investigation, she counseled Ensign Corey Aster about his feelings towards Ensign Ro Nevin. (HF 2.05 - "Encke") She helped look after Traya Knapp after her arrival on the Excelsior. She assisted in treating the wounded at Ten Forward. She attempted to answer Traya's questions about her dad, but she reluctantly told Traya that her dad doesn't like to talk to much about his past. (HF 2.07 - "Fire In The Heart") She counseled Crewman Thalek about his clinical depression. She went as far as contacting Andor for help. She certified Thalek for duty after their session. Thalek's case took a toll on her and she went to Knapp for help. She entered a recommendation that he should be medically retired. (HF 2.08 - "Coward's Death")
Counselor Elbrey tried to help Lieutenant Commander Robin Lefler deal with Sha'Kev's harassment. She wasn't successful at it. (HF 3.03 - "Heroes") She talked with Lieutenant Luko about the shortage in engineering and she informed him that Ensign Corey Aster of the USS Endeavour was at the station. Luko asked if she would talk to Aster about transferring to the Excelsior in exchange for use of his Poindexter Program. She went on the Endeavour and discussed the Borg with other issues affecting Aster, including one about the USS Olympus. William Martinez told her that the recent Borg attack on Farpoint Station was due to the fact that the Borg thought the Grey Research Facility was located on the station. (HF 3.04 - "In Memory Of")
Myra Elbrey was killed by Milo Surgant. (HF 7.08 - "Its Hour Come Round At Last")
