Commander Joseph Walsh
The Series 5 Ranger Team is his baby. He is the
commanding officer, as well as the head of B.E.T.A., the Bureau of
Extra-Terrestrial Affairs located in Beta Mountain (where, incidentally, it never
snows). Brown hair (with grey at temples) brown eyes, assumed to be in his
late forties, but hell, this is a cartoon, and people don't age normally.
With Dr. Negata, he was in charge of the failed
Supertrooper Project, of
which Shane Gooseman is the only intact (read: sane)
survivor. The Rangers are his friends, and Gooseman is something of the son he
never had. He has been know to bend the rules for them when the Council of Leaders
of the World Federation (typified by the nozzle
Senator Weiner) tries to do things like put
Goose in Cryostasis...
Walsh is something of a controversial character. It's implied in
Supertroopers, that he and Wheiner keep each other in check through a complicated web
of mutual blackmail, and a series of "deals." Some of these "deals" involve bending the
rules for his Rangers, but others might wind up harmful to them. He, Nagata, and
Wheiner are the only ones who know about Shane being his "son".
