F. Cadigan was the commander of the USM Valor and was charged with Operation:
At some point after the USM Valor entered the Aegis Cluster, Isaac Clarke successfully launched an S.O.S. beacon which the ship's crew immediately picked up. En route to the USG Ishimura, they intercepted an escape pod launched from the Ishimura. Unfortunately, the pod contained a Slasher.
It was unknown exactly what occurred aboard the USM Valor, but by the time that the ship reached the USG Ishimura, the majority of the ship's personnel are either dead or infected. What was known, however was that Commander Cadigan alerted his crew to the presence of the Necromorphs, signifying that he at least was able to respond to the attack.
It is presumed that Cadigan died before Isaac Clarke entered the Valor.
