  1. Yes he was a hero and in the best tradition of hero-dom, he retired into the shadows rather than capitalizing upon his status. He exemplified the “doing the job, just part of the team” model, yet almost all acknowledge that he was the right man in the right place. The Tranquility Landing was not tranquil and was far closer to disaster than most realize.
