Powers/Abilities: Martika possessed psychic powers which enabled her to sense other lifeforms and communicate using telepathy. By joining her powers with other Pathfinders, she was able to create a powerful psychic attack, and helped power the warp-drive of Seeker 3000

History: (Seeker 3000#1, 4 (fb))- Martika joined Jericho Shaw and Jordan Shaw on a terrforming survey of Cyclades 778. However, an volcano erupted and Martika was struck down. Unknown to Jericho, she witnessed him allow Jordan Shaw to fall to his death.

(Seeker 3000#1)- Martika regained consciousness aboard the mule, but could not recall what had happened. By the time she and Jericho returned to Seeker 3000, she was comatose (possibly due to tampering by Jericho). Martika was placed in the care of Kristian Delano.

(Seeker 3000#2-3)- Kristian kept an eye on Martika, but knew too little about her physiology to know how to bring her out of her coma.

(Seeker 3000#4)- As Seeker 3000 was invaded by the Hkkkt, Phaedra probed Martika's mind, and learned the truth of Jordan Shaw's death. The trauma Martika had experienced was expanded to the minds of all the Pathfinders, unleashing a psychic assault which slew nearly all of the Hkkkt, and crippled their vessel Jakarah. Martika died due to the trauma.
