Chainsaw was a male human intersystem trader in the mid-23rd century and a member of Scratch Jones' crew, known as a troublemaker engaged in barely legal activities.


In the year 2243, he visited Starbase 2 with Jones, where they bet on a pool game with Lieutenant Francis Drake Reed and lost. Realizing that they'd been hustled, Chainsaw grabbed Reed by the throat, but the assault was ended by security chief George Kirk, who told the traders they had ten minutes to leave the starbase.
