Sir, we’re wasting time. Removing the one hundred from the population only buys us another month. Engineering needs more than that to fix those systems, if they can fix them at all.
— Commander Shumway to Kane [src]

Commander Shumway was a recurring character in the first season. He was an Officer on the Ark, and a loyal servant of Diana Sydney.

Throughout the Series Edit

In Pilot, after Chancellor Thelonious Jaha was shot, Commander Shumway approached Marcus Kane and told him that Bellamy was the shooter. He then tried to convince him to go along with his plan to shrink the Ark's population, but Kane decided to wait.

In, Twilight's Last Gleaming, he informs Kane that Abigail Griffin had hacked the Ark's video systems to play her husband's video.

In a flashback in His Sister's Keeper, at the Masquerade ball, he was present for the ID check-up, and caught Bellamy trying to smuggle Octavia out. Bellamy asked him as a fellow guardsman to overlook his deceit, but Shumway told him that he wasn't a guardseman yet and implied that his rank was too low for such a favor. Octavia was put in jail and their mother was floated after Shumway personally pushed the button. A year later he came to the now
