Marty Pinshaw (callsign Waxman) was a student in the 201st Class of the TCSNA. During training he used to talk about how great he is, saying all the time "I waxed his ass".
His coed Todd Marshall got so tired of this, that he reprogrammed his PPC to read his diary out loud, every time Pinshaw pronounced the word "waxed".
Waxman later went onto serving as a pilot on board the TCS Tiger's Claw.
While the Claw was in the Kurasawa system, Hunter and Waxman were assigned to escort the TCS Formidable which entered the system, near the Claw. Carl T. LaFong requested to do it, as he served on it during his Academy years.
