Ivan Kirov is an astronaut and chief commanding officer on Space Platform Galileo. Ivan Kirov's military rank is Captain. Kirov's recording of the Captain's log for Friday, June 13th, was disrupted when The Creature infiltrated the station. He made a direct call to the Ghostbusters for help. As the bust continued, Kirov began to lose faith in the team. Soon enough, he was shocked when Peter Venkman relayed the news they caught the entity. He then ordered Irahqua to request N.A.S.A. to cut a check for the Ghostbusters and deduct their transportation expense from it.
