In 2367, Drake was promoted to Police Captain, and he transferred to the Aldebaran branch of the UFP's Fugitive Retrieval Section. It was at that time that he began using a pellet projection tube or PPT weapon, and was given a Specified Encapsulated Limitless Memory Archive unit, or SELMA, whose holographic interface was modelled after Katherine Hudson.
Drake finally recaptured Yule in 2369, but the crimelord was acquitted on lack of evidence. In reality, both the judge and the district attorney were on Yule's payroll. Frustrated at the system, Drake resigned from the police department. He relocated to the Rigel system and became a private investigator.
Drake investigated the so-called Martian Sand murders in 2373, and helped take down the Fizal Cartel. He picked up Yule's trail late in the year, and followed it to Kal-Dixas, where he kept a low profile for several months, observing Yule's operations.
- The character of Drake Mallory was partially inspired by Edward Woodward's portrayal of Robert McCall on The Equalizer television series.
- There have been several different portrayals of Drake Mallory; Edward Woodward, Bruce Boxleiter, Russell Crowe, and Hugh Jackman have all "played" the role. Viggo Mortensen and Clive Owen were also contenders. It wasn't until 2007 that the question was settled: Journeyman's Kevin McKidd.
