Alexander Whittaker is a Starfleet officer holding the rank of Rear Admiral formerly serving as the Task Force Commanding Officer of Task Force 47 in the Fourth Fleet. A seasoned career officer, his background has been in Strategic Operations, and when he ascended to the levels of a flag officer he established himself as a task group commander capable of balancing political, diplomatic, and military needs in a volatile situation. He has been assigned to the Gavarian Corridor to oversee the Federation’s self-imposed mandate to maintain the local balance of power after a period of success along a disturbed portion of the border with the Klingon Empire.
He comes from a heritage with a great deal of history in Starfleet, and both his son Marcus and his nephew Harry Locke are continuing the tradition to serve, while he himself is a firm family man. Whittaker is reputed as, although a formidable political mind, being something of an eccentric personality, which some suspect he makes the most of to keep his military and diplomatic opponents off balance.
