Scott Childress

Dr. Scott Childress (2032 - 2121) was the head engineer of the team of scientists at Roberts Space Industries (RSI) that created the first Human-made quantum drive in 2075. His doctoral thesis, A new framework for the construction of high-speed spacecraft engines, caught the attention of RSI founder Chris Roberts, who hired Childress soon after his graduation from the Fairchild Institute of Science and Technology in 2061. Allowing travel at 1/100th the speed of light, the RSI quantum core engine developed under the leadership of Dr. Childress ushered in a new age of space exploration within the Sol system and is generally credited as laying the groundwork for Humanity’s expansion into the stars.
