|J. Allen Carter|
|Affiliations:||Presumably NASA, U.S. Senate|
|Voiced by:||Gary Cole|
J. Allen Carter was an Earth astronaut on a survey mission to Mars.
During the mission he inadvertently released the Imperium from their centuries-long imprisonment and was presumably killed in the process. An Imperium soldier assumed Carter's identity and was elected to the U.S. Senate after his return to Earth.
- J. Allen Carter is likely a reference to John Carter, the protagonist of many novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs which were set on a fantastical version of Mars, as is his fellow astronaut, Ed Reiss.
