A tired former Navy pilot, clinging to the one thing he loves–the ship. He doesn’t trust the new crew, particularly Gartner. King sees them as immature children who’ll break the ship as soon as he closes an eye. After 25 years of being treated as effective captain, the order to go to sleep has been a jarring wake-up call.
Richard passed away in February 2017, just a few months after completing his scenes for Personal Space. This role is one of his final performances, and the show is dedicated to his memory.
