The Black Squadron

Share

In 2116, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These Spathi promptly escaped from a maximum-security stockade to the Zoq-Fot-Pik underground. Today, still wanted by the Ur-Quan Hierarchy, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem... if no one wants to help... and if you can find them... maybe you can hire... the Black Squadron.


CHIEF

  • Fearless team leader
  • Enjoys Thraddash cigars
  • Won't discuss dramatic scar

Career Highlight: Tricked two Ilwrath squadrons into destroying each other by telling both of them that the other one was a sophisticated Pkunk psionic illusion


SLICK

  • Only uses knives, never blasters
  • Refuses to wear standard Spathi carapace
  • Something is terribly wrong with him

Career Highlight: Slid through a mile of corridors to rescue the rest of Black Squadron, who had to abandon their carapaces to follow him back out


HOSER

  • Chief engineer
  • Keeps the Black Squadron flying under extreme conditions
  • Is too "strong" (read: tubby) for traditional claw armor

Career Highlight: Fused two Umgah antimatter cannons together to tear a hole into Quasispace, escaping a Kohr-Ah battle group


ZEBRANKY

  • Brilliant tactical officer
  • Heart of a warrior, soul of a poet
  • Has never spoken or indeed illustrated any form of sapience apart from pointing at objects on screen

Career Highlight: Zebranky was gifted to the Black Squadron by a grateful Zoq-Fot-Pik ambassador, stating that it was one of their finest officers


DIPSHIT

  • Son of former second-in-command, Tugboat
  • Tugboat died heroically, his last wish being that Chief would take care of his son
  • No one knew the son's name so they just call him Dipshit
  • Tugboat was later found to be alive and well and uninterested in reclaiming his son

Career Highlight: Regularly appears on enemy ships, waving at Black Squadron through viewscreen, unaware of danger and inexplicable in his method of getting over there
