Colonel Green. I think their original idea was to have Peter Weller as Green, and they decided the time frame was wrong or something, so Paxton was created.
Paxton was an unfortunate name choice for me, flashing me back to 1962 when a Gary Paxton released Bobby "Boris" Pickett's "Monster Mash" 45 single on the Garpax lable.
