By 2367 Donatra was serving as Centurion and transferred to the IRW T'sarok, under command of Suran. He counselled the eager young officer that she should slow down, for that would be no shortage of enemies for her to destroy. Donatra rose to be Suran's first officer, and while in that position first encountered AdmiralBraeg on a mission in the D'nossos system. Suran was leading a task force against the Tellati, and during in the battle they came across a warbird whose command staff had been killed; Donatra and two of her subordinates beamed aboard and brought the warbird back into the battle. Braeg immediately offered her command of one of his warbirds, but Donatra turned him down, too loyal to Suran to transfer.
