Creation of "Janel Tyler"Edit
After Teleya escaped prison in Union space, she joined the Krill military and was assigned to an unnamed Krill destroyer. She then volunteers for a mission to infiltration the Union as a spy to capture a captain. According to Teleya: "Lieutenant Tyler was designed to be the ideal Union officer and the perfect lure."
- Tyler has been an "explorer at heart" since she was a kid with a childhood dream to visit uncharted space and contact new species.
- Tyler is a Human, a lieutenant in the Union, and a dark matter cartographer.
Janel begins quietly dating Captain Ed Mercer some time on or shortly after August 2420. Teleya later said it was easy to attract Ed because he was "simplistic and easily manipulated." In October, Janel's co-worker Lieutenant Morris tells her that she has a "glow;" and she and Ed agree to publicize their relationship. Their relationship lasts until Ed's capture several days later.
Capture of Ed Mercer Edit
In October 2420, Ed and Janel take a trip by shuttle to Sensoria 2. However, Janel leads Ed into Krill hands. Krill soldiers feign torturing Janel until Ed divulges his Command Codes after which Janel returns to her form of Teleya.
The name of the character underwent several changes. In the original draft, Tyler's name was "Janet Miller." A Fox press release from late December listed her name as "Janel Gillis," which may be an error or reflect a later draft name.
