Admiral Richter is known for his unorthodox approach in military strategy. Steve Austin calls him the 'bad boy of the Navy'.
Oscar Goldman was Richter's Executive Officer for Intelligence, until he left the Navy. They are old friends. During the Cuban Missile Crisis, Goldman sat with Richter in a room together for 4 days and nights straight, then they went out and got drunk together when it was over.
