Michael Alexander is the current commanding officer of the E.D.F.S Liberty, and despite his relatively young age is a hardened experienced ship captain. Having fought throughout the Krenaran war, and in numerous anti-pirate engagements. His efforts in enlisting the help of the Solarian empire to intervene in the Krenaran war on behalf of the E.D.F earned him great acclaim, and the hard fought battles against Krenaran forces by the crew of the Liberty earned him a great deal of valour. He also fought in the great battle of Charlie base at Gamma IV, and helped to prevent an assassination plot against the E.O.C.A president, James Rushfeldt by the Krenaran agent Lathiel. He is the most decorated actively serving Naval officer in the E.D.F today.

Graduating from the E.D.F academy as a flight officer along with friend Dylan Marcos, he was later posted to the E.D.F.S Ulysses as deck officer, rising in rank to Lieutenant. During the onset of the Krenaran war Michael found himself stranded on the Surface of the Agemman colony after the Destruction of the Ulysses, he met Nikolai Vargev, and took part in a raid to free colonists being led away in slave chains to Krenaran ships, both were captured in that raid, and were taken prisoner by the Krenaran Axus.

Later both Michael and Nikolai Vargev took over Axus’s ship, killing Axus himself in the process, with the help of the Solarian Ambassador Kerulithar, successfully flew the ship to Solarian space to seek the Solarians aid in the E.O.C.A / Krenaran war. The Solarians subsequently allied themselves with E.O.C.A, six weeks later Micheal returned to E.O.C.A territory at the head of a 700 strong Solarian fleet, turning the tide of the war in E.O.C.A’s favour for the first time since it began. Unfortunately upon returning to Delta base, he would also learn of the untimely deaths of his wife and son, who were killed in an earlier Krenaran attack upon the base, while Michael was fighting elsewhere.

He was later promoted to full Captain for his efforts, and given permanent command of the Liberty, a position which he maintains to this day.

Personal life.

Regarded as an astute tactician, he is often quiet, humble, slightly reserved, and thoughtful. The loss of his wife and son had a profound effect on him personally, and he went through an extended period of depression, and he has not yet entered into another relationship because of this. Regarded by those he commands as more of a very close friend than a commander, he is held in extremely high regard by his crew.

Hello, my name is Annika Raumov, the date is april 7th 2076, the top stories today.

The yearly remembrance parade has begun outside of Foxtrot base, thousands have gathered to pay their silent respects to those who died during the Krenaran assault on the colony world of Sigma XI. We now take you live to the gathering, via our correspondent Michael Harkus, on location.

Yes Annika, I am here at the remembrance obelisk just outside of Foxtrot base, where mourners have been gathering all day to pay their silent respects to those who died, when Krenaran forces attacked this world during the outset of the great Krenaran war.

The base itself, a gigantic intelligence hub located on the colony world of Sigma XI. Was attacked and completely destroyed early in the war with the losses of thousands of intelligence personnel, civilian staff, and colonists, and is remembered to this day as one of the worst atrocities of the entire war.
Although the base has largely been rebuilt since that time, the scars amongst the inhabitants of this world still linger on, a giant black marble obelisk was erected two years ago, near to the main entrance of this facility, with the names of all those who died in the attack engraved upon it. For the past two years, this has served as a focal point for the colonists to remember and honour their war dead, there are many wreathes, flowers and candles laid at the base of the obelisk.

Just earlier, a solemn two minute silence was observed amongst the crowd, both young and old, men and women, those who had lost fathers, wives, and husbands. The atmosphere I can safely say is one of silent emotion.

Thank you Michael Harkus, we now bring to your attention a report just come in, of an explosion at a chemical refining plant on the colony world of Sicarius within the Karrakis sector. Preliminary reports suggest that the plant was shut down while the colonists celebrated the easter festivities, and no one was hurt. The plant itself, I understand, refines solid fuels used in the inter-system booster engines of naval and civilian craft. Nearby buildings have been evacuated, and local fire services are on location and currently battling the fire, although the blaze is described as fierce, and it could be several hours before the fire is finally brought under control.

Firefighters battle to bring a fierce blaze under control, at a solid fuel refining facility on the colony world of Sicarius.

My name is Annika Raumov, this is the outer colony news service, thank you for watching.
