Captain Wayne is the commanding officer of the Heavy Battlecruiser Scorpion. Captain Wayne, while aggressive in battle, has a very logical side to her. While some would say she is cold, she is just very focused on the business at hand.
This in no way means she does not care for her ship or crew, but she has no problem making the hard life-and-death decisions that go along with the burden of command. She, like many others in the fleet, would enjoy using the resources of Project Morpheus for exploration rather than for battle.
