What did Alpha 1 . . .
Say to his CO. . . I mean DAMN, front lines every time.

Or is the GTVA a very warlike society, and front line jobs are considered a good thing?

Re: What did Alpha 1 . . .
Of course your assuming Alpha 1 was the same pilot all the way through.

Maybe he was just was a suicidal individual with bad luck.  He volunteered for all the hard missions but just couldn't get himself killed. 
No-one ever listens to Zathras. Quite mad, they say. It is good that Zathras does not mind. He's even grown to like it. Oh yes. -Zathras

Alpha 1 simply wanted a chestful of badges and lots and lots of glory.  :p

When you get 1 frontline job, and you do an exceptional job... why would someone put you on gaurd duty near Mirfax?

Ypu request some quite duties after the excitment of the NTF war and the battle of capella.
You then transfer to Mirfax where nothing happens so you can relax.
At his point you are then killed by a random asteroid whist on patrol

It'd be a real shame for Alpha 1 to survive the NTF Rebellion and the Shivans to trip down the stairs and die.

A1 wanted some hair on his chest.
Every pilot's goal is to rise up in the ranks and go beyond their purpose to a place of command on a very big ship. Like the colossus; to baseball bat everyone.

Alpha 1 is just a janitor on board the Aquitaine who is playing around with the mission simulator.

You're assuming we flew every mission Alpha 1 ever did. Which is, frankly, highly unlikely. We saw perhaps one in five I'm guessing.

Also, beware the Murphy's Laws of Military Operations. Complete more than your fair share of objectives, and you will be given more than your fair share of objectives to complete.

No one willingly goes to Mirfak.  One is sent to Mirfak to attone for great sins, however the greatest sin is sending someone to Mirfak.

Alpha 1 is technically cursed by his own success.  :nod:

No, you go to Wolf 359, or Bernard's star
