Captain Airstrip-One attended the funeral of Merlyn on Otherworld.

He was accidentally rendered into a catatonic state on a visit back to his home world. While attending a parade for the ruling party, an official -- feeling philosophical -- was espousing upon the nature of power when he told Captain Airstrip One to imagine a boot stamping on a man's face forever. Interpreting this as an order, the Captain began visualizing exactly that and became oblivious to all else happening around him.

  • Named after George Orwell (the author of the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four), and Winston Smith (the protagonist of the same novel).
    • His alias, "Airstrip-One", is a reference to the area of the same name in Nineteen Eighty-Four, which used to be the area of England, Britain, located in the state of Oceania.
