Radu is an Andromedan from the Andromeda Galaxy. Back at his home, he never really fit in because he was an individual. So they sent him to the Starcademy where he was the first Andromedan there. But he didn't fit in there either, and was teased, hated, and feared all because of his race. Now, he's on the Christa. He stutters a lot, I guess because he's so busy concentrating on sounds and stuff. He has, like all Andromedans, super-strength and super-hearing. He's 11 earth standard years old. Both Radu and Elmira are supposed to be destined to be. He's always trying to "fit in" and have a "family". He considers the crew of the Christa as his family. I think that he was really decent throughout the whole show. In the beginning, he had to deal with a racist and his nasty comments. No matter what terrible things Harlan said, Radu would keep his cool. And he STILL wished to seek friendship with Harlan. Radu has always been, by far, the most lovable character to me because of what he puts up with. He has always been my favorite.
