The crew learned that John Thorne used to go by the name John Throne, and was a well-regarded member of the Telo military. Under military orders, he annihilated all life on a planet via planetary bombardment, an action he still carries an incredible amount of guilt over. When he was asked to do the same to Izengor, he went AWOL. The citizens of Telo were told that he retired with honors.
