Kent is only given a name on his second outing, in "Soon the Nearing Vortex" he is simply the unnamed courier, or rather, according to the script, "Pilot" of the courier ship. Kent is sent by Dylan Hunt to track Tri-Lorn's ship taking Telemachus Rhade back to Tarazed for trial. In "The Spider's Stratagem", he announces himself as "Andromeda courier Lieutenant Kent" when delivering his encrypted message.

Kent is played by stuntman Chris Webb.
