Although there were previous glimpses of the space craft carrying the "Partyers from Mars," the crew member known as "Captain" was first identified specifically on page 8 in Megaton Man #3 (Apr. 1985). At this point he is not yet seen. The Partyers' space craft is seen here on a splash page, along with dialogue:
"Engineer! What's going on here?!!!"
"I never seen a-nuthin' like it, Cap'n, sir! She just won't stay on the bloody course! It's like she's got a mind of her own!!!"
"Science officer! Explanation!"
"Captain, a Klingon Party store has us in some sort of tractor beam!!! Resistance is futile!"
"Warp six, Helmsman!!!"
"Aye aye, Captain!!!"
"--And get those empties ready!!!"
The Captain's first name (Jim) is identified on page 14 when he speaks with Bones:
Bones (responding angrily to Pup's reading of their sealed orders): "'Rock planet'--?!! Why you floppy-eared, tongue-sweating, inhuman-- mutt!!! Do you realize what you're saying??? You're talking about-- an entire culture-- about meddling with an alien species of intelligent life! -- What about-- non-interference? What about-- the Prime Directive?!!"
Pup: "Doctor, your outburst is most illogical."
Bones: "Jim, what I want to know is: Who gave the order? The Federation? Starfleet?"
Captain (Jim): "Bones, we gave the order! We wrote it!"
Bones: "Oh, yeah."
Jim is essentially humanoid in appearance, but he has long elf-like (or Spock-like) ears.
