Commander Jack Ransom was a male Human Starfleet officer that served as first officer under Captain Carol Freeman on the USS Cerritos in 2380. (LD: "Second Contact") His birthday was July 16th. (LD: "Moist Vessel")
Ransom had extensive experience leading away missions, especially missions that seemed like "a walk in the park" before taking a sudden turn towards disastrous. Ransom listed facing horned gorillas, sentient tar, and "spores that make you hook up with your best friend's sister."
In 2380, Ransom served as Captain Carol Freeman's first officer aboard the USS Cerritos. That year, he led ground-based elements of a second contact mission to the capital planet of the Galar system, before being bitten by a Galardonian insect and bringing a rage virus aboard the ship. (LD: "Second Contact")
Ransom led a gift giving-mission to Gelrak V shortly after they had been signed into the Federation, when an incident led to the team being attacked and imprisoned. While being pitted against Vindor in a match to the death, Ransom stabbed Beckett Mariner to prevent her from being able to fight so he could defend his team. Vindor conceded the match, freeing the team. (LD: "Temporal Edict")
"Oh, what happened? Where am I? And… did I eat flesh?"
"Uh, hardly any."
"HOW MUCH DID I EAT?!"
"In thousands of simulations that has literally never happened before. Let's try another one, on a ship with even MORE children!"
Jack Ransom was voiced by Jerry O'Connell.
