Space Patrol: Lt. Alpha-Blue

Lt. Alpha-Blue is a Elan-model android who served its emergence period as a research assistant at a Federal Science Foundation. After he was released into citizenship, he chose to enter the Patrol as a Science officer. He has served dutifully if unexceptionally for three decades. He currently serves as executive officer and scientist on the Kiran Bedi.

Alpha-Blue looks like a bald human male made of hard blue plastic. He lacks basic emotional programming, and has therefor spent considerable effort to develop a rudimentary understanding of human behavior for his work with the Patrol.
