Christopher Magoun was a Manticoran citizen and an officer of the Royal Manticoran Navy.

Biography Edit

Holding the rank of Lieutenant Commander in 1879 PD, he served as commanding officer of the Falcon-class destroyer HMS Shrike, on convoy duty in the Silesian Confederacy.

In the Hillman System, his convoy was ambushed by a pair of pirate light cruisers. When they approached, Magoun had his ship pitch up, exposing the ventral wedge, just prior to missile impact. He then had her roll to bring her broadside into arc at just over 100,000 kilometers. The second pirate cruiser accelerated, but was eventually overtaken by the Shrike, which gave it a beam shot causing a reactor failure.

His opening move in the battle served as a textbook example of a maneuver that was still taught at the Royal Manticoran Naval Academy on Saganami Island decades later. (JIR1)
