In 1903 PD, Harris held the rank of Commander and was assigned as High Admiral Bernard Yanakov's operations officer. During a tour of the Manticoran heavy cruiser HMS Fearless, he was openly agitated by the fact that Captain Honor Harrington of the Royal Manticoran Navy was a female and in command of a starship.

Commander Harris accompanied High Admiral Yanakov aboard GNS Austin Grayson during the pursuit of the Navy of Masada fleet following the First Battle of Yeltsin's Star. He was killed in the destruction of the Austin Grayson. (HH2)
