When Mayweather assumed command of the Horizon, he was a year younger than his son Paul Mayweather was in 2153. Prior to assuming command, he was an engineer. Because of his inexperience and not knowing how to run the bridge, the Horizon fell behind schedule. Facing the loss of his ECA license, he wanted to quit. His wife Rianna would not let him quit.

Travis was able to see the bad situation in his father's eyes. (ENT: "The Catwalk")
