Ace, real name Dorothy (Dorothée) Gale McShane, was a companion of the Seventh Doctor. She was a human from late 20th century Earth. A native of the London suburb of Perivale, she was born on 20th August 1970. (NA: Timewyrm: Revelation, Falls the Shadow, Set Piece, PDA: Relative Dementias)

Biography

In her youth, Ace had been a troubled teen on Earth, having been expelled from school for blowing up the art room as a "creative statement". Gifted in chemistry (despite failing it for her "O"-levels), she was in her room experimenting with the extraction of nitroglycerin from gelignite when a time storm swept her up and transported her to the deck of Sabalom Glitz's spacecraft docked at Iceworld far in her future. (NA: Love and War) Trapped on Iceworld, she got a job as a waitress and (an unknown time later) met the Doctor and his companion Mel. When Mel left the Doctor at the conclusion of their battle with Kane, he offered to take Ace with him in the TARDIS, and she happily accepted. (DW: Dragonfire)

Ace had suffered several traumatic events in her childhood, including a bad relationship with her mother and the racist firebombing of her friend Manisha's flat. (Manisha died in the fire-bombing, and Ace in anger set fire to Gabriel Chase, a long abandoned mansion rumoured to be haunted by an ancient evil (DW: Ghost Light, NA: Blood Heat)). Consequently, Ace covered up her own fears and insecurities with a streetwise, tough exterior. Her weapon of choice, disapproved of by the Doctor (who nonetheless found it useful on occasion), was a powerful explosive she called "Nitro-9", which she mixed up in canisters and carried around in her backpack.

Affectionately giving the Doctor the nickname of "Professor", she was convinced that the Doctor needed her to watch his back, and protected him with a fierce loyalty. In turn, the Doctor seemed to take a special interest in Ace's education, taking her across the universe and often prompting her to figure out explanations for herself rather than giving her all the answers.

Early travels

Under the Doctor's tutelage, Ace fought the Daleks and faced Davros in 1963. (DW: Remembrance of the Daleks). She later faced Helen A and her sadistic government, which required people to be happy on pain of death. (DW: The Happiness Patrol) She stopped the Cybermen from getting hold of Nemesis in 1988 (DW: Silver Nemesis), and saved the Psychic Circus on Segonax from the Gods of Ragnarok. (DW: The Greatest Show in the Galaxy) She also met the Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart and helped UNIT defeat the Destroyer and Morgaine. (DW: Battlefield)

The Doctor did make Ace face demons from her past including taking her to a house she burned down 100 years before burning it down. There was an Entity in the house known as Light, and Ace had felt his presence in the house, so she burned it. (DW: Ghost Light)

Ace's arrival on Iceworld was not accidental, but in fact part of a larger scheme conceived by Fenric. Ace was a "Wolf of Fenric", one of many descendants of a Viking tainted with Fenric's genetic instructions to help free it from its ancient prison, and a pawn in the complex game between it and the Doctor. The Doctor appears to have been aware of this from their first meeting, although Ace was not. After Fenric was defeated, Ace continued to journey with the Doctor. (DW: The Curse of Fenric)

Ace did return to Perivale where she found that all her old friends had gone missing. She thought that they had moved on, but in fact they had been taken to the Cheetah World as prey for the Cheetah People. She found the Master, an old enemy of the Doctor, was using them so he could get off the Planet. Ace returned with two of her friends and she went of to travel with the doctor again. (DW: Survival)

Further journeys with the Doctor

Sometime after encountering the Master in Perivale, she encountered the Master's influences involving Duchamp 331 and encountered for the second time Bev Tarrant. (BFA: Dust Breeding).

Following an encounter with Nazis, the Doctor took Ace to Ibiza in 1997 to 'relax' following her ordeal (BFA: Colditz). Whilst in Ibiza she discovered that she had a brother; Liam McShane. (BFA: The Rapture)

Journeys with Hex and the Doctor

Whilst in London in 2021 investigating with the Doctor evidence of 'xenotech' use—use of alien technology on humans—in fact Cyber technology, she met Hex, a nurse working at St Gart's Hospital; following his help she convinced him to join her and the Doctor, taking him under her wing some what. (BFA: The Harvest)

Later travels with the Doctor and Bernice Summerfield

Ace after rejoining the Doctor following her three years with Spacefleet

Indications exist that the Doctor had plans to eventually take Ace to his homeworld of Gallifrey and secure her admission to the Prydon Academy, possibly as part of his assumed mission as "Time's Champion". However, Ace became more and more frustrated with the Doctor's manipulations, eventually leaving his company (NA: Love and War) at age 26 (NA: Set Piece). She joined Spacefleet and fought the Daleks for three years, later rejoining the Doctor and Bernice Summerfield, older and more hardened (NA: Deceit). Ace's relationship with Bernice was at first less than cordial, possibly out of jealousy, but the two eventually became friends.

Ace's relationship with the Doctor remained strained for some time, but they eventually resolved their differences. Finally, after their ordeal with the Ants, Ace left the Doctor again to become Time's Vigilante, using a short-range time hopper mounted on a motorcycle to patrol a particular segment of time; in effect doing what the Doctor does, but on a smaller scale. (NA: Set Piece)

Status

Varying and contradictory reports of Ace's eventual fate exist. She may have been killed sometime before the Seventh Doctor's regeneration into the Eighth (DWM: Ground Zero). One report even claims she inherited the mantle of the Time Lords when they became extinct (WC: Death Comes to Time). Yet another account suggests that she eventually comes to live in Paris in 1887 after leaving the Doctor. (DWN: The Curse of Fenric, NA: Set Piece)

Other possibilities

Quite possibly this confusion is owing to the existence of an alternate reality containing a young woman, also called Ace, who traveled through time in the company of a mystery figure known as "The Professor." Yet another reality is known to exist whose version of Ace, called "Alice," accompanies a time traveller known as "The Dominie". A human matching Ace's description and personality (and heard making references to a "Professor") was also reportedly involved in a series of competitions involving a Sontaran and a Draconian (independent film: Mindgame).

This article is about the title. You may be looking for other uses of the term.
An X-wing ace pilot.

The title of ace (in full, space ace) was conferred onto any starfighter or combat airspeeder pilot who had achieved five or more kills against enemy forces in combat. The origins of the title were unknown, but the status held equal import regardless of the era in which it was earned. Many pilots throughout the history of the galaxy earned the title of ace, with many of them exceeding the minimum number of victories by considerable margins. Among the Galactic Republic and later the Galactic Empire, particularly exceptional aces could be given the title of "Tan," which would be used before their full name.

Behind the scenes

The term "ace" as it relates to space combat in the Star Wars universe is a verbatim transposition of the real-world term, used by fighter pilots since the time the first airplanes became available for military purposes. Like its in-universe counterpart, the term was bestowed upon any pilot who had successfully destroyed five enemy aircraft, with permutations accompanying the status as circumstances dictated (e.g., double-ace, triple-ace, for those who had downed ten or fifteen enemies, respectively). These permutations however, seem to be absent from established canon.

In the X-wing and Rogue Squaron video games it is not uncommon for players to score upwards of 100 kills per mission, however this is likely due to dramatic license rather than that the player controlled pilots having canonically held such high kill counts.

In Star Wars: Galaxies, players have to complete all the missions from a particular squadron before they are awarded the title "ace", having to make many more kills than just five.
