Name Captain Carter
First Appearance Episode 1
Survives? No - killed in Episode 12
Captain Carter is something of an enigma. In charge of Pluto Alpha Base, which is wiped out by the Alliance early in the story, he is captured, tortured and subverted by the Alliance into the individual on the right. He was responsible for training Shiro, Hercules and Lee with Shiro being particularly close to him.
For some reason he decided to leave his academy position and take up command of Pluto Alpha Base, a decision which Shiro wonders about later in the story. His story comes to an end after Shiro challenges him to a duel following the revelation that his subverted self has been responsible for increasingly clever attacks on X-Bomber. Finally freed from the Alliance's control as his "lobster" implant falls from his head, he forces Shiro into killing him in combat.
Webmaster's note - information altered on the basis of this submission from Derek Tate, also flagged by Paul Snowball. Note the comment about Mr Hagon's wife! Mr Hagon has a homepage.
Your info on "Captain Carter" is slightly incorrect. The actor is male, and his name is Garrick Hagon. He has been in many features, his most famous role being the X-Wing pilot Biggs in "Star Wars: A New Hope" (1977) - that character being a pal of Luke Skywalker's (Mark Hamill). He has also been in "Batman" (1989), "Mission Impossible" (1996), "A Bridge too Far" (1977) and some ancient episodes of "Dr.Who", to name but a few of his screen credits. One interesting fact is that his wife in real life is the lady who played Princess Lamia in "Star Fleet"! He is British, but picked up the Canadian accent as he grew up there. I believe he was with the Royal Shakespeare Company in the 1960's.Last updated 14 December 2013
