Tom Baldwin (Joel Gretsch): A former FBI agent, Baldwin is currently an NTAC (National Threat Assessment Command) agent, which is in charge of dealing with the return of the 4400. His partner is Diana Skouris. He has a son, Kyle Baldwin, and his nephew is Shawn Farrell, one of the 4400. Tom is the first who discovers his nephew's ability to heal. At the beginning of the series, his son has been in a coma (which he'd gone into at the same time Shawn disappeared; they were together when Shawn was abducted), which Shawn helps bring him out of. Tom is very protective of his son, which causes him to difficulties as an NTAC agent. This is contrasted by the problems being an NTAC agent cause him, often forcing him to violate his own personal principles. He discovers that the 4400 weren't kidnapped by aliens, but by Earth's own future, to avert a great catastrophe, and Tom is supposed to help them. In the second season, he becomes involved with one of the 4400, Alana Mareva, whose own ability was used to give them the experience of a multi-year relationship and marriage in the space of a few seconds (harder to explain in a short sentence than it is to see in the episode, I know!). In the third season of the show, a terrorist 4400 faction called the Nova Group target Tom, impersonating him to kill a captured Nova member. This same season sees Maia Skouris (Diana's adopted daughter) re-abducted, with Diana sliding slowly towards death. Tom uses an attempted suicide to get the future people's attention, which cause them to remove him from the timestream before his death. He negotiates the return of the other 4400 children who were re-abducted, but in return, he is supposed to destroy a “great evil,” but when the time comes, he can't do it. And this is only the beginning of his story in the series!
