Season 5Edit


As the 2nd Mass and the 14th Virginia prepare to depart their base for Washington, D.C., Ellis arrives with his militia on motorcycles, looking to join them. He is stunned that Tom Mason himself is among the men he meets as he thought they'd be further down the road to Washington, D.C., not knowing that they were delayed by a Black Hornet attack. Ellis offers his militia as Tom's back-up in the assault, but before they can leave, Tom is informed of a problem. Ellis follows Tom and his command staff into the Norfolk Base's command center and listens as they discuss the defensive wall and ways to get around it. Ellis demands to know the plan if he's going to help Tom and they explain about the Espheni Queen and the problem of the defensive wall. When Tom decides to use service tunnels to sneak a strike team into the city rather than a full-out assault on the Lincoln Memorial, Ellis demands to know why Cochise and the Volm can't just bomb it from orbit. Anne Mason informs him its not that simple, but they have the Dornia bioweapon which will wipe out the Espheni when used on their Queen. Tom asks Ellis to lead his men in a diversionary attack on the wall with all the artillery they can carry so as to draw the Espheni forces away from the Lincoln Memorial and allow Tom's strike team to reach it. Comparing the attack plan to his experiences in Vietnam, Ellis decides that the danger is nothing compared to what he faced before and agrees to lead the diversion.

Months after the war, Ellis attends the ceremony at the Lincoln Memorial. When Tom Mason walks by Enos, Tom pats him on the shoulder. Enos listens to Tom Mason's speech about the war.
