Lieutenant JG Dara Gideon "Flash"
Hot shot pilot of the "Crimson Sands" Dropshuttle
Lieutenant JG Dara Gideon, or more commonly “Flash”, is the extremely confident pilot of the “Crimson Sands”, and she can’t help but brag about them; despite her seeming bravado, she is a natural pilot. She is also a show-off and takes risks she probably shouldn’t, but this has proven valuable in her deployments and she consistentenly performs above the expectation of her peers.
Lt JG Gideon is a Veteran NPC Small Craft Pilot, and she is noted as having a natural aptitude for it. In her K-1 Class Dropshuttle, she is unmatched as a pilot.
Lt JG Dara Gideon is a black-haired, attractive young woman who is also a hot-shot, show-off pilot. She was fired from her job as a planetary militia shuttle pilot, for her brash and flippant manner. She then acquired the position of pilot of the “Crimson Sands”, mostly because no one else wanted the task. Although the ship was beloved by both flight crews and pilots of the Marik 405th AeroFighter Wing, the ship was only used for supply runs and the job had neither combat potential, nor any chance for promotion.
“Flash” is always engaged in fixing the “Crimson Sands”, after its many years of neglect, tweaking its engines and thrusters, and has completely rebuilt its controls at least twice. She is assisted in her efforts by Tech Cobb Usher, a tech from the original Iron Dingoes support staff who has experience in AeroSpace operations and has proven a skilled navigator and assistant tech.
