Holding the rank of Commander in 1922 PD, Wu was in command of the light cruiser HMS Cometary. When the conflict with the Solarian League was on the verge of turning into a full-scale war, he and his crew were sent out to inform Manticoran merchant ships and passenger liners that the Wartime Commerce Security Act was being enforced and they all had to return to Manticore directly.
When he found the Candida Line freighter Vortrekker, en route to the Klondike System, he ordered its master, Captain Freida Malachai to turn around. However, she convinced him to let her drop her current cargo in Klondike and then return to Manticore via the Beowulf Terminus of the Manticore Wormhole Junction. (HH13)
