Unverified sources report Stesig's parents were poor solar farmers from North America. As a teenager, he ran away. Near Jupiter, Stesig saw a space yacht in trouble. He saved it's inebriated owner by EVAing & piloting the ship out of danger. For several years, he was the star-pilot for the eccentric billionaire. When the old mans heart gave out, the family released Stesig, penniless back to the galaxy, where he joined the UEE Marines.
