Dirk Flinthart

Nobody who witnessed Dirk Flinthart’s brave but ultimately futile gesture of body-slamming an incoming asteroid swarm could fail to be impressed by the sheer courage and determination of this loyal ASIMite. With a vanishingly small probability that he actually survived the multi-gigatonne collision, clad as he was in only a cheap plasti-maché spacesuit and armed with but a toy laser-blaster, it’s unlikely that we’ll get a status update from him. Still, we live in hope.
