Hacker was a human pilot of the Union of Border Worlds.

Hacker was the leader of a Border Worlds squadron during the Border Worlds Conflict of 2673. He flew a Banshee alongside Bob-O-Matte and Moose on a routine patrol in the Peleus System.

During this patrol, a pair of Confederation F-103 Excaliburs assaulted the squadron, flown by Black Lance pilots. Bob-O-Matte was immediately shot down, so Hacker and Moose broke formation to prepare for an attack. Moose fired a missile on one of the Excaliburs, but the Black Lance were equipped with jamming technology that instead sent the missile towards Hacker. Hacker desperately tried to evade the missile, but was killed when his craft was shot down.
