Starbase Commander Hayes is the leading officer aboard the Human Earth Starbase orbital space platform around Earth in the Sol planetary system. He was transferred there 10 years after the Ur-Quan Hierarchy erected the slave shield around Earth.
During the war, Hayes had served on board several Alliance ships, including a Shofixti Scout and an Earthling Cruiser. He is one of the survivors of the terrible battle at Draco, where the Ilwrath and Earthlings clashed. Commander Hayes is not only a military man; he is also an intellectual who knows a good bit of information about most alien races, recent history and the art of war. He can also brief you on current events and unload minerals from the flagship's Storage Bays for Resource Units.
