He was later amongst the signatories of the Coalition Compact. (ENT episodes: "Demons", "Terra Prime", ENT novel: The Good That Men Do)

The Tales of the Dominion War short story "Eleven Hours Out" establishes the Prime Minister of United Earth as an important political figure, which is confirmed by the ENT novels The Good That Men Do and Beneath the Raptor's Wing. The exact nature and extent of the Prime Minister's role, and how it functions alongside the role of President of United Earth, are as yet unestablished.
