Holding the rank of Rear Admiral, he was the commanding officer of Task Force Sidemore and Senior Officer, Sidemore Station, in the period before the resumption of hostilities and the beginning of the Second Havenite-Manticoran War. First Space Lord Simon Chakrabarti considered him far too junior for the assignment.

Still, he was happy when he was relieved of overall command by Admiral Honor Harrington. (HH10)
