X, more commonly known as "Commander X", was the Executive Officer of the Strike Force against the Husnock as well as a trusted protegee of General Endicott. Eventually promoted to Captain, X participated in several major engagements during the War.
Commander X was born as "Robert" in Season 74 and was the son of Dalton, a highly influential and powerful politician of the Forum. In Season 80, Commander X briefly served in the Army as an enlisted Private; however, he was dismissed from Army service in Season 85 due to disciplinary infractions. After that time, he changed his name simply to "X".
Commander X joined the Navy in Season 87 as an enlisted Recruit and was advanced to Crewman one year later. Due to his father's influence, he was commissioned a Lieutenant in Season 89 (without having attended the Service Academy) and assigned to vessel ST-887 (later known as the SS South Lakes). Commander X served as Weapons Officer and was onboard the South Lakes when the War with the Husnock broke out.
In Season 91, X was promoted to Commander on orders from General Endicott after the relief of Colonel Joseph. Commander X served as Executive Officer of the [SS Husnock]] and also replaced Joseph as Executive Officer of the Strike Force against the Husnock. Commander X began acting commander of the Strike Force after General Endicott became Supreme Commander of the Army. During the Battle of Second Strike, X distinguished himself in combat against the forces of the Second Husnock.
In Season 92, Commander X was promoted to Captain and assigned to command his own ship, the ST-920. During the Battle of the Homeworld, Captain X led a vanguard assault against several Husnock vessels.
After suffering heavy damage and having most of his command staff killed, Captain X led a suicide run and collided head-on with a Husnock warship, destroying the ship as well as several other nearby Husnock craft. Captain X's own ship was also instantly destroyed with Captain X killed in the engagement.
