The chronicle of the final voyage of the medical relief ship GSC Nightingale.
Captain Leland Azikiwe
Ship’s Captain (Mars Station East (MSE))
Leland Azikiwe was born on one of the orbiting stations around Mars and grew up accompanying his father, a shuttle driver, between the orbiting stations and the Martian settlements. Leland attended an aeronautical university on Earth and upon graduation joined the GSC as an Ensign navigator. He worked his way up to Captain and his flawless service record landed him assignment as the Captain of the Nightingale. Captain Azikiwe has earned the nickname “Captain Robo-kiwe” by his crew and many of the Nightingale’s students due to his emotionless affect and inability to see the world in shades of gray.
