Physical description: Maxby is dark haired with incursions of gray throughout. His close cropped hair and beard adhere to the stricter standards of lower ranking officers. His square face and solid frame demonstrate a history of physical activity, which is just now softening with age and rank. Maxby's eyes portray only a semblance of the dynamic processes working behind them. The Commodore's voice is distinctive and authoritative but revealing of his underlying passions. Maxby is always dresses appropriately with little or no embellishments allowed a commander of his rank.
Psychological profile: Maxby considers himself a realist in that he works with what fate has dealt to him. He has no lofty utopian ideals but works to make that which he can effect better. Maxby is unerringly loyal to Queen and country but has been known to bend and or break regulations to achieve his ends. Maxby's command style is very familiar for a man in his position. He subscribes to a team based approach forsaking the more structured chain of command model recommended by Æther Fleet Command. The Commodore is know for employing unorthodox solutions to problems that seem to him to be quite logically sound but to others seem ludicrous. (ref. Crippling XO with hand Blaiser to prevent escape of Cartassian hostage takers) His high rank was achieved through a combination of exemplary work, success in difficult situations and a broad scope of experience.
Service record: Enlisted in Royal Æther Navy upon announcement of War with Klinkon rebels on Mars 1976. Commissioned as a Lt. due to college degrees.
Served as helmsman on the HMS Phalanx, which was destroyed in the second engagement at the Hornsby station. Reassigned to the HMS Vengeance as temporary armory officer. After the Klinkon truce Lt. Commander Maxby was assigned as First Mate on her majesties Man-o-War class PDB "Thrusher" performing pirate suppression in and around Saturn. Maxby was reassigned to the HMS Intrepid during the Romlian War and was awarded his own command after the destruction of the Romlian warship "Yar Alla" He served as Captain of the HMS Resolve with great distinction for 12 years until the Resolve was decommissioned. At this point he was promoted to Commodore. Working in fleet operations for the past 3 years at Ætherfleet Command he has developed close relations with most of the individual ship commanders in the fleet.
