Tobin Starlaw 2.0

I created Tobin for Iteration 3, but that doesn't mean Iteration 3 can't improve him.  The Fighter Ace template saw substantial chances as a result of the many spaceship playtests, so unsurprisingly, Tobin saw some improvement too.

Tobin keeps the same gear he had before (with a few minor updates that should have been there in the first place, honestly), as he's more concerned about his starship than he is about anything else.  He only sends $22,400 of his portion of the $150,000 budget.  He has TB-7, but as an ally rather than something he paid a dollar cost for.  And, of course, he has his Starhawk (a classic Starhawk is good enough for him), but he's chosen it as Signature Gear, and thus he leaves the $60 million budget completely alone.

This version of Tobin is far, far more lethal than he was before, thanks to the streamlined template.  He's not much good at anything other than flying a starfighter, but he's at least reasonably competent at "adventuring."

And, of course, what would Tobin be without his trusty sidekick, TB-7?

TB-7: 150 points

Like most robot allies, TB-7 has been around the block awhile and has begun to exceed his programming.  He's picked up a few additional programming quirks (disadvantages) that compensate for the fact that he's slightly better at repairing things.  Technically, he's too expensive for Tobin at this point (an error), but I'm overlooking it because I expect that the final characters will be 300 points.
