Admiral Sean Squires-
Admiral Sean Squires started life in the USN as a Ship Sanitation Specialist aboard the USN ship Greater Destiny, during a stand off against an Anakonzli Dreadnaught. Ever the klutz Crewman
Squires ended up tripping over his untied laces, While trying to catch
his balance he grabbed the Trash Disposal lever, jettisoning 1-1/2 tons
of trash towards the enemy ship.
Due to a fluke in the enemy ships
sensors, it didn't detect the trash ball. The ball of trash ended up
impacting the enemy ship and clogging the plasma exhaust vent, causing
the plasma to back up in the ships system, causing a catastrophic
explosion obliterating the ship and its crew. In order to try and cover
up his incompetence Crewman Squires claimed that he launched the trash
on purpose figuring that it was worth a shot, if it was detected they
could claim that it was the automated trash disposal system that
jettisoned the ball. His captain believed him, and put his name in for
The USN promoted him to tactical Fleet Commander of the 73rd
Fleet. It was there that they realized he wasn't the tactical genius they
were lead to believe when he lost 4 ships due to collisions during a
routine rescue operation. the USN quickly "Promoted" him to the rank of
Admiral and gave him a desk job, in which he had no true authority.
50 years later most members of the USN
had forgotten that Admiral Squires was the cause of the accident of the
73rd Fleet, naming the first ship in the new line of Heavy Cruiser after
him, the USNS-10275, The Admiral Squires, the first of 12 Squires Class Heavy
Cruiser. The Admiral Squires has served with distinction as a Escort
ship for the USF's Governmental fleet along with various Merchant and trade ships, fending off numerous pirate raids and at least one Anakonzli battleship and 3 Destroyers.
His great grandson Robert Squires is a fast rising cadet at the USN Academy on Apideas Prime, having taken and passed both the first year and second year exams during his first year at the academy, and scoring some of the Academies highest scores during training simulations.
