Commander Thomas Dallas
Former Civilian Pilot.
Commander Thomas Dallas is a Regular DropShip Pilot NPC, with extensive long-term experience as a civilian merchant hauler. Along with his crew, he is fairly un-military in attire and attitude, but are capable in their tasks as leads of a DropShip. Money speaks and as long as he is paid regularly and well, he’ll do the work. He once piloted both the Stone Dog and the Silverlight as its lead pilot, but now serves aboard the “Guinevere”, the unit’s reserve hauler, which does double duty as both a cargo hauler and courier DropShip.
Dallas and his crew originally hale from the Concordat, and were hired and shipped-in during the last month of the conflict on System – Dunkelheim when it became obvious various DropShip assets were about to fall into TF29s hands. Assigned the Stone Dog by Baron Sarne, he and his crew had limited experience in combat maneuvers, but are not afraid to “tussle”, if supported in their efforts.
In addition to several junior engineers recruited from the original pirate crew, Commander Dallas leads a full crew of engineers and pilots including; Kane Winger as his XO and Medical Officer, and Brent Orville as his Senior Engineer. Allison Cavanaugh formerly his Communications/Navigation Officer, has been given a promotion and sent to take charge of the “Scotian Huntress”. These four had worked together for many years, and still know each other very well. Their experience in loading operations has given them an edge in prep time for missions and allows rapid recovery of assets.
In late-3024, the commander took possession of the unit’s latest acquisition, the “Guinevere”, and sold-off the Silverlight to fill the unit’s faltering coffers. A step up in size and capacity, the vessel is more in tune with his his origins as a commercial pilot, and his crew have quickly settled into their new charge.
