Service Record Ben-Haim was recruited by the military after the Genesis' simulators came online. He was a civilian pilot at the time, working for an aeronautics design firm in England. Along with exposure to small and large earthbound craft he had gained the distinction of being one of a relative handful of people with spaceflight experience, piloting civilian crafts back and forth to Mars. News of the Givers didn't inspire in Ben-Haim the same raw hope that it seemed to for so many; he could never explain it and rarely vocalized it, but the project made him extremely suspicious.

When the military showed up it took quite a lot of convincing, though exactly what what offered he rarely talks about. While he was always quietly humble about his piloting, his mistrust of the Givers' salvation leaked its way into his demeanor when he wasn't careful, leading to several "talks" about his attitude. It was his skill that would both make him and break him, his quick familiarity with Genesis systems vaulting him easily to their best and most versatile pilot on the project. Meanwhile he counted down the days until he could get the hell away from the entire thing.

His discharge orders were on the table six months before the Genesis was due to leave. But something abrupt happened behind closed doors, and he walked back out not only still enlisted, but assigned to fly the twenty-year mission. And for some reason the ship's best pilot — a second tour soldier — was very pointedly snubbed for promotion, making many suspect there's a little more to the story.
