Independence Day Wiki

Floyd Rosenberg is an American federal comptroller who accidentally gets tagged along with ESD Director David Levinson to save Earth in 2016.


Floyd was appointed to David Levinson, who was not aware of him after Floyd had been "chasing [Levinson] across the planet for three weeks" much to the comptroller's annoyance. He originally went with Levinson concerning the ESD Director's travel expenses while in the National Republic of Umbutu. Initially, Floyd was unwilling to travel with Levinson to the Moon in order to uncover the wreckage of an alien ship, but quickly changes his mind rather than being left behind in the NRU.

Upon arriving on the Moon, Floyd and his group witnessed the return of the aliens, and survived their hectic return to Earth and to Area 51. When the ESD proceeded with their plan to attack the Harvester Mothership, Floyd observed the ESD fleet's departure in which he then realized how his life was worthless and exhibited his frustrations by disposing his suitcase in a trash can.

Floyd later went to observe Dr. Brackish Okun's efforts to unlock a container that was taken from the Moon wreckage. After Dr. Okun succeeded in opening the container which released a large spherical object, Floyd curiously touched the sphere and inadvertently activated it.

During the upcoming battle with the aliens, Floyd took part in the defense, arming himself with a hybrid blaster and gunning down alien Fighters and soldiers. He later aided Dikembe Umbutu in rescuing and then defending Doctor Okun and the Sphere. After the battle, Floyd idly wonders whether or not he gets to keep his weapon, and is commended by Dikembe who told him that he has the heart of a warrior.
