Brave, courageous and one of the best pilots in the fleet. But he's also been in trouble more times than he can count, demoted and even court martialed.

As Commander of the 1st Dasher Squadron "Angel's Wings" of experimental Star Fighters from the future, he knows it'll take more than just fancy flying and a cocky attitude to stay on top.
