Captain Ben Ford, commanding officer of the heavy destroyer Discovery, is all military all the way, but with a slight twist. He has a humorous, sarcastic side which is overlooked by the Admiral because of Captain Ford’s successfully accomplishment of difficult missions.
Captain Ford is the epitome of a destroyer captain. Ford is cool under fire, daring, aggressive, and fearless. He would never ask his ship or crew to do anything he would not do himself. Because of this, Ford’s ship and crew would follow him into the toughest scrapes and back.
Captain Ford, like many other of the Project Morpheus captains, has been too involved with his ship and the project to have a family of his own.
