See Bennett for other articles with titles that contain, either by relationship or by coincidence, this character's surname.

James Bennett was a male Human Starfleet officer who served in the Starfleet Judge Advocate General (JAG) office. He held the rank of rear admiral from at least as early as 2373 through at least 2383.

Bennett was the man who worked out a plea bargain in 2373 with Richard Bashir regarding the elder Bashir's genetic enhancements made to his son, Julian Bashir. (DS9 episode: "Doctor Bashir, I Presume")

A decade later, Bennett rules that the "Data Decision" only applied to whether The Doctor was Starfleet property and not to the question of The Doctor's sentience. (ST website: The Path to 2409)

In 2385, Admiral Leonard James Akaar asked a yeoman to get Admiral Bennett to his office to discuss Julian Bashir. (ST - The Fall novel: A Ceremony of Losses)

It was not outrightly stated in The Path to 2409 that James Bennett is the same JAG rear admiral who dealt with the Bashir situation; it seems likely, unless there is a second JAG rear admiral Bennett serving in Starfleet in the late 24th century. The novel A Ceremony of Losses confirms that James Bennett is the same character and the only Admiral Bennett in Starfleet.
