Callsign Deathstroke
Allegiance Empire of Kilrah


Dakhath nar Sihkag, was a Kilrathi fighter ace. He flew the Dralthi medium fighter and had at least 55 kills recorded against the Terran Confederation by April, 2654. Dakhath, whose name means "deathstroke" in the Kilrathi language, was single minded and seemed to be completely without fear. He would not abandon an engagement until every enemy within 1,000 kilometers was dead and would not abandon a target until it was destroyed. He enjoyed inflicting pain and made a hobby of shooting down ejected pilots. In combat, Dakhath was known for firing his missiles from a distance and then engaging in close combat using guns. As a result it was believed that he enjoyed watching explosions. Confederation pilots were advised to use his single-mindedness to lead him away from strategic targets. He was featured in Pilot Profiles in April 2654.

Michael Casey encountered Dakhath nar Sihkag in the Planck's Star System in 2652. Two years later, on 2654.135, Christopher Blair and Jeannette Devereaux encountered Dakhath while flying a mission in the Gimle System. Blair was able to shoot down the Kilrathi ace during this encounter.
