Rear Admiral Cobum was a male Starfleet flag officer in the 24th century.

In early 2374, Captain Benjamin Sisko presented Cobum and Admiral Sitak with his plan to retake Deep Space 9. Cobum had concerns that the Dominion would not commit a large force to stop them, but instead would take the opportunity to launch an attack on Earth. Sisko convinced him that the Dominion would not attack Earth, as the Bajoran wormhole was the key to the Alpha Quadrant. (DS9: "Favor the Bold")

Admiral Cobum was played by Bart McCarthy.
In the Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 149), while the authors acknowledge the admiral's name was spelled "Coburn" in the script, the authors insisted on spelling his name as "Cobum", his credited name.
