Ferguson was a member of the crew of the armed merchant ship Pirates' Bane under Captain Thomas Bachfisch.

Holding the rank of Lieutenant, he was the Bane's electronics specialist. He had a military background and was very familiar with the People's Navy's hardware and software.[1]

After the encounter with RHNS Hecate, Commander Jinchu Gruber sent him aboard the wreck to tackle the Havenite vessel's computers. Ferguson managed to get all that was left in them, including a lot of background information about the Republic of Haven's recent operations in Silesian space, but not very much about Second Fleet, its order of battle and its location.
