Ade Tokunbo was navigator on the Canterbury. She was of Nigerian descent.
She had a secret sexual relationship with Executive Officer Jim Holden which she was reluctant to escalate into a romantic relationship, despite his insistence.
Holden maintains a channel open with Ade as she counts down the time until the torpedoes strike the Canterbury, destroying it and killing all of its crew, including Ade herself.
- There was yet another secret that Ade was keeping if what the author reported about the character corresponds to both the book and the TV incarnation. The nature of the secret makes the James Holden character a tragic unwitting chump.
