In 2259, Max unsuccessfully tried to hold Dr. Everett Jacobs for ransom along with Chase. He overheard Jacobs trying to buy an identicard. This tipped him off that he was important. He and Chase caught him and Max went through his things, finding a data crystal. From this, he found out who Jacobs was and realized Earthforce was looking for him. He contacted Special Intelligence and set up a deal with Derek Cranston for 10,000 credits, however, when he returned to where they were holding Jacobs, he found Chase tied up and an armed Michael Garibaldi. Garibaldi threatened to kill him and Max gave up the crystal.
