You would think that someone in the military or civilian bureaucracy would notice that a fighter pilot has racked up more kills than a destroyer, including capital ship kills. Not to mention that on many missions you might end up being the sole survivor. Or even that during bombing missions the only one actually following orders and destroying the correct targets instead of wasting their bombs on frigates. Even stranger, Alpha one is badass enough to fly within a few feet of a shivan destroyer before releasing his payload right into a beam cannon, while the other 12 or so bombers wimp out and launch from a kilometer away.
Surely its time to start a cloning program or at least take him out of the fight and make him a trainer. Or even better, promote him and make him captain of a Corvette. That Deimos will be killing Sathanas in no time!
