Name: Lt. Aubrey "Duct Tape" Mackie
Rank: 1st Lieutenant (presumably promoted after Derelict)
While reliable, and a competent pilot, Mackie is known to be vocal and often times rude. Despite his complaining, he recently requested a second tour of duty at Tau Sigma Station. He was originally assigned against his will when he tried speaking Vasudan without a translator, simultaneously violating some 14 rules of etiquette in a single phrase. He inadvertently insulted a senior officer at Aldebaran. To this day, it is not known exactly what Mackie said, or how he said it, suffice to say that Mackie would rather remain at Tau Sigma.
