The ship’s doctor, Walter is middle-aged and balding, though what hair he does have is worn in a long ponytail. He suffers from middle-age spread, but much of that covers a lot of muscle. He hides the fact that he was formerly a gynecologist in private practice, but he is fully trained and capable of handling just about any medical problem, including minor surgery. Walter is also the ship’s chaplain, and he’s well-versed in most faiths. His main weakness is alcohol, of which he regularly partakes with his closest friend, The Reverend Timothy Rydell, Delta Station’s Chaplain.
