Default Calavicci, Admiral Albert



Played by: Dean Stockwell

Job: Project Observer and Two Star Ex-Rear Admiral

First Appearance: Pilot Episode, ?Genesis? (original series)

Born June 15, 1934 to an Italian father and a mother of Russian ancestry. When he was a child, his mother ran off with an Encyclopedia salesman, and Al feels part of the reason she left was the pressure of raising Trudy, his sister, who suffered from Down's Syndrome. Al's father died of Cancer when he was eleven, and he and Trudy had to live in an orphanage.

Al had ran away from the orphanage and turned to crime. He pick-pocketed Charlie "Black Magic" Walters and was busted. Charlie took Al under his wing and showed him that people did care. After getting out of the orphanage, we went to go get Trudy, and learned that she had died at age sixteen from pneumonia.

He went on to college, attending both MIT and the Naval Academy. By the age of 23, Albert Calavicci had become an ensign in the Navy and a fighter pilot stationed at Pensacola, where he picked up the name "Bingo". He eventually rose to the title of Admiral.

He married in 1961 to Beth. She was the love of his life -- his one shot at perfect happiness. In 1967, his A-4 went down over the highlands. Al was kept in a cage near Cham Hoi until after the U.S. had pulled out in 1973. His love for Beth kept him alive. In April 1970, he was nearly repatriated during a rescue attempt but it failed. Once Al was repatriated, he found that his wife had declared him dead and had married another.

Not too long after Vietnam, Al began working with NASA, where he circled the moon ten times. Times were good, but short lived. He met a young man while at Star Bright that helped change him around ~ Sam Beckett. The pair became fast friends.

Admiral Calavicci is known for his womanizing ways and his list of female companions is almost legendary. He's been married five times and spent his first, third and fifth honeymoons in Niagara Falls. *(1:Beth, 2:Unknown, 3: Ruthie, 4: Sharon, 5: Maxine) His love interest, is Tina, the head programmer at the project.

Al's sexual prowess is legendary - especially in his own mind. Sex seems to be on his brain often, and he holographically letches after women. Al believes in the Devil, and says that his experience as a POW showed him that the Devil exists. Interestingly, Al is easily spooked and tends to believe in the supernatural more that he will admit too. He is a passionate environmentalist. He is also a big sports fan.

Although the above is correct, when Sam went back in the past in Mirror Image to talk with Beth, telling her that Al was alive and coming home, Beth did not divorce Al. She and Al have been married for 45 years and have 4 daughters with her. Although the original series did not continue to give names for their daughters, The Virtual Seasons has given them names: Jacqueline Trudy Calavicci, Elizabeth Michelle Calavicci (1st of Twins), Victoria Jayne Calavicci (2nd of twins) and Christa Emma Michelle (the youngest).

I looked... and the only one that I can see at the moment that is listed with a year is Emma -- Born in 1982

But Julianna Calavicci which is Al's daughter with Lisa was born Dec. 15, 1960.

Their dates may be there in the stories... and haven't been added to the A to Z yet. That's why I'm re-reading the stories to update that.
