Terran Naval Commanders
Commander Helena Jansky, the Ganymede.
Admiral Juan Cajal, the super-dreadnought, Valendaray.
Captain Einarson, the Sabik.
Commander Dominic Flandry, the Asieneuve.
Captain Chang, the Isis.
Admiral Thomas Walton with a Captain Chang on an unnamed flagship.
Fleet Admiral Sir Thomas Walton on an unnamed dreadnought.
Gospodar Bodin Miyatovich, the Vatre Zvezda.
I found it interesting to compile this list of opposite numbers of Captain Kirk. The list starts with the Founder of the Terran Empire commanding a captured Gorzuni slaver. Flandry, still only a Commander, loses his first, and only, command. Argos, Jansky and Cajal are pre-Flandry.
As usual when I count items in Poul Anderson's Technic History, the list turns out to be longer than expected. Chang loses the Isis on Freehold and may or may not be the same Chang who is with Walton later.
