|I wonder who didn't make it? Hope it wasn't Goldy. He was nice to me the first day I got here, you know? It's like those little things that count in the end.|
Rifleman (most likely)
Goldy was sent on a mission on Zulu Alpha, along with Bravo Six, General Jack Gordon Shepherd, and their division. There Goldy met, and befriended a fellow trooper, newest member of Bravo Six, Pvt. Billy Otter. He and Billy were likely the youngest troopers sent on the planet. Eventually they were attacked, and surrounded by bugs. The bugs were quickly overwhelming them. Eventually, Shepherd ordered the surviving troopers to retreat to the abandoned outpost Hotel Delta 1-8-5. Goldy was among the troopers who were ordered to remain behind and cover the retreat. While making a last stand with Shepherd, Goldy was killed by the bugs during the second wave. Goldy was fondly described by Billy as being really nice, particularly during his first day in the service. Shepherd successfully rejoined the surviving troopers at Hotel Delta, and told them about Goldy's death, referring to him as a "kid". Billy was saddened by this news along with Sahara, Sandee, and the others. Sandee looked at Billy understandingly and with sympathy as he lowered his head in grief and Sahara placed her hand on his shoulder, comforting him.
