Thompson was a Human gun turret officer on the Andromeda Ascendant before the Fall. Being a young and inexperienced combatant, Thompson is reprimanded by the Andromeda's XO, Gaheris Rhade, after he forgets to activate his weapons battery during a combat readiness drill. In Rhade's mind, Thompson's lack of focus and general irreverence can cause major problems on the battlefield. Captain Dylan Hunt, however, believes that, as a rookie, Thompson deserves a second chance to show that he can do his job. Thompson never gets the opportunity to correct his mistake during another drill, as the Andromeda becomes entangled in the Battle of Hephaistos hours later, in which he is killed by a direct console explosion to the face.
