- This article is about the operator, for the character from Burning Hope, see Link (operative).
He had previously been Operator onboard another ship for AK, who was killed by an Agent while trying to exit before the events leading to Tank and Dozer's death. When this happened, as promised, he joined the crew of the Nebuchadnezzar, becoming their new Operator.
During the final battle of Zion he acted as a gunner on the Hammer, protecting the ship from the Sentinel attack. Once they get close enough to Zion, Captain Roland orders him to charge the ship's EMP and once they reach the Dock, Link fires it on Morpheus' orders. Link's EMP blast destroys the Sentinels in the Dock, saving the day for the time being, but also disabling all of the Dock's defense systems.
Link is reunited with his wife (who also fought in the battle) outside the ship and remains in the Temple during the final showdown with the Machines. When Kid proclaims the Machines gone, Link leads the cheering for Neo's victory.
