Space Cadets Initiative
Walter Stanik was selected in 2350 to be Captain of the introductory Space Cadets Initiative. After crossing the Barrier at Checkpoint 1193-S on June 11, 2352, the ISF Explorer was never heard from again. Nearly a year later, Captain Alaborap returned from the dead to announce that he’d marooned the Space Cadets on an alien planet. On August 1, 2353 the ISF publicly acknowledged the Cadets as “Missing In Action.”
