Jack Rackham

Serving IEN Admiral based in Q0.

Current Position

Promotion to Rear Admiral and recall to Q0 prior to taking up an operational command was announced on 3207.325. Details of the operational command have yet to be released.

Rear Admiral Rackham is one of the Empire's finest naval officers, with a reputation for fairness towards his friends and ruthlessness towards his enemies. Not an officer to suffer fools at all, his somewhat robust attitude to bureaucrats and timeservers has made his promotion slower than his abilities and record might suggest.

Outgoing message to crew of ESS Agamemnon

Message from the Captain

The Aggie is a good ship. It has been my privilage and honour to command her for the last four years.

The crew have tremendous skill, experience and I am proud to be their commander.

In the last year we have been involved in operations against the new enemy, known to the media as 'Exterminators'. As in the past, members of the crew, in common with the rest of the fleet, performed expertly and bravely, and the supreme sacrifce of our Navy and co-belligerents in the Exterminator War have at least brought the enemy to a halt in Quadrant 7.

I fully expect this to gain the recognition it so richly deserves.

The Aggie is currently attached to 1st Allied Fleet, based in Sirian space, and I know I speak for all the officers and crew when I say that we can't wait until we have another crack at the foe.

I know we will all do our best, and our duty to the Emperor and to Earth and to all humankind.

Humanity will prevail.

Captain Jack Rackham, EN
