Commander K. Starling was the pilot of the Anhur-class patrol ship, the G.F.S. Tyr. Starling landed the Tyr on the planet Aether while pursuing a Space Pirate starship that crash-landed there. The pilot was presumably killed along with the rest of the crew by a swarm of Dark Splinters, although it is possible Starling was killed in the crash. Starling's body was never identified.

Starling was called B. Gordon in the Metroid Prime 2: Echoes beta. An unused Trooper Logs entry for Gordon suggests that the troopers were originally alive as Samus Aran landed on Aether during the events of Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, although they were not able to survive long enough for her to reach them.

Down to the five of us. Ivey's "phantom gunship" set down a while ago - it's not one of ours, and it's definitely not a Space Pirate boat. Whoever's in that ship is in for a treat, that's for sure. Hope they do better than we did here.
