John Dalton
Race Human
Rank/Position: Unknown
Corporate Affiliation: TCA

He was in the Marines once before. They threw him out. Because he thought for himself. They called it "departing from established mission parameters."

One time, this colonel ordered him to leave a wounded civilian behind. He told the colonel to shove it and dragged her out anyway. So he was court-martialled. Cashiered. Kicked out. He went on cop duty, patrolling the ass-end of space with the rest of us rejects.

You can tell he hasn't changed, though. Pisses the hell out of Aida, but he still wades in with both fists and does what he thinks is right.

John Dalton, along with Aida, Isaak, and Ne'Ban forms the crew of the TCA Atlantis. He follows orders from Sector Commander Hawkins.


During the game, Dalton is offered reinstatement into the marines along with a promotion to Colonel. However, the reinstatement turned out to be a ploy to get Dalton to risk himself for the Artifacts. Therefore, his maximum rank attained is Lieutenant Colonel, assuming the marines of the future use the same rank structure as modern day marines. Curiously, a texture file within the game shows a marine dress shirt in Dalton's cabin with two stars on the shoulder, which normally denotes a rank of Major General.
