Sam / Shotglass
|Service/branch||Terran Confederation Space Force|
Sam, aka Shotglass, was the bartender aboard the TCS Tiger's Claw. He had originally been a pilot on the Claw, until injuries sustained in early 2654 while fighting the Kilrathi prevented him from flying again. Sam had flown with nearly every pilot on the Claw as of 2654, and freely shared information regarding each pilot's flight habits with new members of the crew.
Shotglass certainly fit the style of the "omniscient bartender". His knowledge spanned from details of systems visited by the Tiger's Claw (including their Kilrathi names), to Kilrathi aces, to tactics for dealing with specific Kilrathi fighters.
On 2654.284, Sam invented a new drink he named the Rostov Hairball, after the system the Claw was currently in.
Sam is presumed to among those killed when the Tiger's Claw was destroyed in 2656 by Kilrathi stealth fighters.
