Linx was battling against a Rutan squadron near the Sol system when he was forced to abandon his battle ship and take his scout ship to Earth for repairs in the 13th century. Linx allied himself with Irongron, who offered him shelter in exchange for advanced weaponry.
Linx was intolerant of any interruptions from Irongron, who pestered him for weaponry. Linx did eventually supply Irongron with the guns he so desired. Linx died when Hal the Archer shot an arrow in his probic vent, and his ship exploded soon thereafter. (TV: The Time Warrior)
After meeting Styre, another member of the Sontaran race, Sarah Jane Smith briefly thought he was the same person, though she herself said that was impossible as she had seen Linx's ship blow up. Styre explained that as Sontarans are clones, he and Linx were identical. (TV: The Sontaran Experiment)
Behind the scenes Edit
- Linx's full name was first given in the novelisation. The Jingo clan and Linx class cruisers were introduced in PROSE: Lords of the Storm.
- Although played by the same actor, Linx and Styre weren't identical to the television audience. Linx had three digits per hand, a differently shaped head, and darker skin than Styre. In Lords of the Storm, the "rotten-wood shade" is cited as a feature of the Jingo clan.
