Background Story of David Smith
D. Smith - a name ranked with Alexander and Julius Caeser. He was the Chosen by the Old Ones, destined to defeat all of Terrans natural and supernatural enemies in the Fourth Interstellar Conflict. Orphaned at the age of nine when Vennos overran the planet Empass, he spent the next eight years under the tutelage of Karsti the Sorceress.  At 17 he joined the Academy, graduating in only two years, and was commissioned as a fighter pilot.

Smith quickly climbed the ranks and became known for his daring exploits against the Carnivores and Entomalians. He was the commander of 13 Squadron when REVENGE was commissioned and immediately sent into action. He later became the captain of the GUERRIERE (VICTORY Class SGD) in the Alpha Quadrant fighting the Entomalians. It was here that he gained immortality by defeating Vennos in hand-to-hand combat. Smith was the driving force that exposed the traitors in the Senate leading to a purge of the entire government.

His final victory was that against the dark forces that had controlled the galaxy for thousands of years. With the help of Karsti he obliterated the Black Castle of Weltisell, breaking the spells that had bound the entire galaxy for eons.  This victory gave the command of the galaxy to D. Smith, the first Star lord, a mere mortal who was Destined. Smith is depicted in the combat fatigues of a Terran star pilot.
