― Captain Hollister, Data Downloads
Captain Hollister was the captain of the Aurora. They were last heard on the Aurora, ordering Second Officer Keen to regroup any survivors at the Floating Island. Hollister sacrificed his own life to control the Aurora's descent, ensuring that the Aurora remained as intact as possible so that any remaining crew would be able to contact Alterra with its radio systems.
Ryley Robinson is required to access Hollister's personal quarters in order to obtain the blueprints for the Neptune Escape Rocket, which happened to be the only functioning computer on the Aurora.
