Holding the rank of Captain, Pangborn commanded the heavy cruiser PNS Krashnark. In 1913 PD, his ship entered the Cerberus System to deliver a group of Allied prisoners captured during Operation Icarus to the StateSec prisons in the planet Hades. Unbeknownst to Pangborn, the planet had already fallen to an uprising of its inmate population, and thus he approached Hades following the instructions sent by prisoners posing as personnel of Camp Charon's space control facilities.
Once in orbit around Hades, Krashnark was boarded by three shuttles dispatched from Camp Charon, ostensibly to transport the Allied prisoners to the surface. Instead, a strike force equipped with power armor seized control of the cruiser's boat bays, as Camp Charon threatened to destroy the ship with Hades' orbital defense weapons unless it surrendered. Captain Pangborn complied with the command to surrender, and the heavy cruiser became the first unit of the so-called "Elysian Space Navy". The Havenite crew, including Pangborn, were taken prisoners. (HH8)
