Skyfighter Pilot/Captain

This is the Visitor that Mike Donvan first sees when he slips onboard a Visitor shuttlecraft in uniform to escape his first capture onboard the Visitor mothership. The Visitor asks Mike what unit he is in and Mike holds up two fingers and dares not speak or his voice would give him away as a non visitor. As the ship lands the Visitor demands Mike say goodbye and then opens fire as Mike barely escapes via a big truck cab.

In short this is the "what unit are you in, You forgot to say goodbye" Visitor.
