Assault 9 is the ninth Proteus prisoner named after the crime committed by his "Original Sinner". Akin to his other peers he is in a perpetual state of inebriation and dull minded. He updates Starbuck (Bootlegger 137) on life on Proteus, and complains to him that the enforcers get the better ambrosa. He also comments that Embezzler 10 was down a few blocks from him.

After Starbuck discovers that the cell doors' locks had been in a state of disrepair, Assault 9 was the most vociferous of the bunch, telling Starbuck to get back into the cell. Instead, Starbuck incites a riot when he informs them that the Colonies had forgotten about them for countless yahren; unsurprisingly, Assault is the first to rise to revolt and attacks the speechless leader of the enforcers, Croad (TOS: "The Long Patrol").


  • Assault is a crime of violence against another person. In some jurisdictions, assault refers only to the threat of violence, while the actual violence is battery. Assault is often defined to include not only violence, but any physical contact with another person without their consent.
