Jason Shepard

Born June 22 '60 -

Retired Commander Jason Shepard is the sole owner, proprietor, captain of the Compass-class Scout vessel The Misguided Venture and later the demilitarized gunship Longbow-553 renamed The Better Life. he was born on the planet Tempest, Thunderbird Sector, on the orbital colony. Growing up with heavy national service minded folks, at the tender age of 18 he went off to the CSFR Naval Academy on planet Reading, Thames System, Manticore Sector, graduating in '78. While attending school, he played for the football team as a star O/D lineman, playing with greats like Lance Hopper, Derek Chesterfield, and others.

After graduating, he went on to serve 12 years with the Core Systems Republic Navy, fighting in the Core Systems-Spartan War, earning medals and distinctions in many battles, but is most famous for his efforts at the Battle of Kal'Dassa where he and his squadron of Hotspur attack craft destroyed the largest battery of High Altitude Low Orbit Anti-Aircraft Artillery that had been firing nonstop at CSRMC elements trying to secure a forward deployment zone on the moon.

After the war was over, he retired, serving another 4 years in the merchant marines before retiring for good.

Since then, Shepard has bought his ship and hired a crew, and have been freeballing it since.
