Ernst Bishop is an UEE Navy Admiral assigned to the 2nd UEE Fleet. He is also member of the High Command. A chief advocate in pushing for the Vanduul War. He is portrayed by Gary Oldman in Squadron 42.
"Alexander the Great, Hannibal, Patton. To many in the UEE, Admiral Ernst Bishop has built a career evocative of these great military tacticians. A lifelong soldier, Bishop quickly distinguished himself as leader and strategist by seeing angles that others don’t and taking risks that others won’t. Strategy is a shifting puzzle to him. For better or worse, he is capable of disconnecting his empathy to the point where a battleship is simply an asset (with strengths and weaknesses) in the game, not a ship of five hundred souls. This is how he keeps winning. If he had any interest in playing politics, he would have easily been promoted to High Command by now, but he’s exactly where he wants to be and exactly where the Empire needs him; patrolling the dangerous front lines of Vanduul space, hunting for a foe that’s constantly probing for a weakness, any weakness, to cross that border and fight."
