- V'Len Kel
- V'Len served aboard the USS Thor and USS 'Oumuamua with Jack. Jack's first shore leave aboard the USS Thor joined him up with V'Len and several others for a trip to Bajor. Jack also enjoys V'Len's Holo-mysteries in which they act of Detectives in Earth's early 20th century. Jack has found these mysteries to be not only fun but challenging.
- Nesre Salo
- Jack fisrt met Nesre Salo aboard the USS Thor and along with V'Len Kel and Commodore Aaron Kells spent several days on Bajor with Nesre during shore leave. Jack enjoyed his time with Nesre and when their second shore leave came around she was one of the first people he asked to go to Bora Bora, Earth with him. The shore leave proved to be fun and even led to the rescue of a mother dog on the islands peak of Otemanu. Nesre shares a similar love for animals as Jack and something that he believes has brought them closer as friends.
Jack graduated Starfleet Academy in 2399 with strong aptitudes in Diplomacy, Tactics and Engineering. He is an accomplished Tactics recruit but his ultimate passion or perceived passion is to have a starship command of his own.
Jack was assigned to the USS Thor as Tactical officer right out of the academy and quickly found himself on a crew that he could learn from and grow with. Jack however found his first assignment in the Delta quadrant much more of a challenge than he was expecting when his ship and crew were ingested by a large space born creature. The experience has brought new realizations to the fact that anything can happen in Starfleet.
Jack's assignment to the USS Thor ended on stardate 239905, following the near destruction of the ship. During his second mission aboard the Thor, the ship was assigned a mission to the Gamma Quadrant and to the Okaea star system. During this mission the Thor was ambushed by a pirate vessel leading to the Thor's emergency crash landing in one of the Okaea oceans. Along side his crew, Jack worked through what seemed to be an impossible endeavor to save the Thor and rescue the ships crew while defeating an enemy that tactically had proven superior initially to the Thor. The experience brought Jack closer to crewmembers that he had not really known and now considers many as friends.
On stardate 239906 Jack accepted an offer from Commodore V'Airu to transfer to the USS 'Oumuamua, a Luna Class starship. Several days later at a ship wide awards ceremony Jack was awarded his second Captains Commendation for his ingenuity and grit were pivotal in getting the Thor off planet safely. Jack also received a promotion to the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade.
