Carolyn Palamas was a female Human Starfleet officer during the 23rd century.

HistoryEdit

In 2264, Lieutenant Palamas was assigned to the USS Enterprise as A & A officer (Archaeology & Anthropology). During her years aboard the Enterprise, she accompanied Captain James T. Kirk on numerous landing parties, must notably a disastrous return visit to Avalon and an encounter with the million-year-old warrior robots at the Asteroid Tessel excavations. (TOS novel: Prime Directive)

In mid 2267, Palamas accompanied Kirk, Dr. McCoy, Lt. Commander Scott, and Ensign Chekov to the surface of Pollux IV, after the Enterprise was stopped in space by a being claiming to be the Greek god, Apollo.

Upon arrival on the surface, Apollo tried to use his powers to persuade the landing party to worship him. He was captivated by Palamas's beauty, and the two quickly fell in love. In order to defeat Apollo and leave the planet, Captain Kirk ordered Palamas to anger Apollo so he would exhaust his power, enabling the Enterprise to destroy his generator. Her sense of loyalty and duty to her captain compelled her to betray Apollo, and he ascended to the Gods, allowing the landing party to leave. (TOS episode: "Who Mourns for Adonais?")

A few weeks later, Palamas discovered that she was pregnant by Apollo. She transferred off the Enterprise in her first trimester and took an assignment at the archaeological dig on Camus II. In 2268, she gave birth to a daughter, Athena Palamas (named after the Greek goddess of wisdom). Athena was sent to Earth to live with Palamas's sister, where she was studied by Starfleet Medical for some time. (NF novel: Being Human)

In 2289, she joined Captain James T. Kirk and a number of former Enterprise officers aboard the USS Enterprise-A as part a clandestine effort to defeat a group of malevolent creatures who had killed many members of Starfleet, the Klingon Defense Force, and the Romulan Star Navy during the preceding decades. (ST comic: "Debt of Honor")

The Palamas family history and official records document Carolyn Palamas as being killed by celebium poisoning in 2269, while she was part of a research team of scientists on Camus II. (NF novel: Gods of Night)

Palamas was the great-great-grandmother to Starfleet officer Mark McHenry. (NF novel: Being Human)
