During their journey, Bosun Higss proved to be a bright kid, very knowledgeable about the Long Earth and the importance of the trolls.[2]

When travelling across the Mine Belt, the ship encountered the Pennsylvania who crashed in a Joker. Bosun Higgs was among the crewmembers who helped to rescue the survivors of the crash.[3]
