LT. COMDR. RIGEL is a Multan A.I. prototype. An android. Self-actualizing, he is in command when the crew is in cryo-sleep. Rigel is male, six ft. tall, slim, muscular, and very handsome. He will not, however, be mistaken for a human due to the slight but distinctive security stamp dressing the right side of his forehead. Due to his decision to not awaken the crew from cryo-sleep upon being overtaken by a solar storm, two of the crew members die.
