Telisic has worked on Jump Drive technology and fold-space equations for over half his life.
Born on a USR colony, he was quickly fast tracked into n-space and space manipulation studies before joining USR’s engine research department.
There he was one of an elite group of researchers that helped pushed engine research ahead decades – these four were the bright shining stars of USR until an accident engulfed the lab, creating a time/space tear that wounded most of them, killing one.
Telisic was caught up in the investigation afterward and left USR under a cloud. He has never had a research job since and now works maintaining and improving Jump Drives on capital ships. Telisic is unbelievably smart but is curt and has problems relating to other people.
