He was transporting Tyr Anasazi when he escaped. Dylan Hunt gave him a chance to join his crew, and Rhade accepted because he saw an opportunity to improve himself. After he did this, the Collectors used this to scapegoat Dylan and to hunt him and Andromeda.
What were the charges brought against him?

I'm listening to 4x06 (Soon the Nearing Vortex) and in the conference scene (8:38), Dilan says that they have to bring him to terazed and a couple lines later says No trial, no defense, no evidence, that's illegal but nothing about charges are mentioned. DynV

Who? Rhade or Dylan? They accused Rhade of allowing Tyr to escape and thus conspiring with the enemy or something similar to that. Dereliction of duty type offenses but of course they had no more genuine basis than those the Collectors leveled against Capt. Hunt. 05:43, June 15, 2012 (UTC)
Haha! If I posted the question on Rhade talk page... it's because the question is about... Rhade! :D Yes I saw the collector frame-up episode before so I paid special attention to the charge part. Thanks for the info but where did you get it? In which episode and about what time? DynV 06:29, June 15, 2012 (UTC)
When the crew goes to Tarazed. And next time if you want to be an asshole you can look it up yourself. 04:26, June 20, 2012 (UTC)
Isn't the scene I mentioned the one when they plan to go to Tarazed? What scene exactly? It's really too bad you can't take a joke, there was even a smiley, then you go on to be insulting... DynV 07:21, June 20, 2012 (UTC)
