David Falk was a member of the Army Special Force's Tactical Reconnoitering and Acquisition Team, serving in the same unit as Dylan Morton. His cheery personality and cowboy attitude helped keep team morale high.[excerpt 1]
David was a member of the T.R.A.T. force sent through time to investigate the missing Edward City and the 2010 Third Energy Criticality Incident. Their base camp was attacked by a pack of Velociraptors soon after arriving, leaving just David, Dylan and Regina left. The raptors left when a Tyrannosaurus moved through the jungle. David managed to destroy its right eye with an RPG before escaping.
Reaching the other side of the lake by unknown means, David made sure to dig "D"-shaped cuts into trees to help the others find him. Reaching Edward City, David met the few remaining inhabitants, awaiting the firing of a Third Energy weapon to save them from the dinosaurs. Piloting an RAH-66 Comanche attack helicopter, David found Dylan and Regina under attack from a pack of raptors and took them out. Unfortunately for the townspeople, him leaving allowed hundreds more Velociraptors the freedom to attack, unopposed. Crash-landing in the city, he found that no one survived. He became frustrated at the fact that the mission to recover the data still stood, despite the high civilian casualties, and angrily wondered what use the data would serve with no timegate to return to the present day. With one of their mission objectives failed, the three soldiers began to search the city for the Third Energy data.
David regrouped with Dylan during Regina's escape from the exploding Missile Silo, where he proceeded to open a dam which would lead out of the area surrounding the Missile Silo. David was then killed and eaten by an Allosaurus after shoving Dylan out of its path.
- The manual booklet for the NTSC version of the game lists his last name as Fork rather than Falk.
- In an earlier draft of the story, David was instead called "John Smith", and his nickname in the team was "Cowboy". He was to start the game with Regina and Dylan.

"陸軍の特殊部隊に所属する軍人。 ディランと同部隊に所属。 常に陽気で、チームの士気を高めるムードメーカー。 カウボーイにあこがれており、常に帽子を手放さない。 戦闘能力はディランには及ばないが、仲間のために身を挺する優しさはチーム随一である。"
