~ The Sovereign Admiral ordering his pilots to kill the Guardians.
The Sovereign Admiral is a minor antagonist in the 2017 Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. He is a Sovereign military admiral who serves as Ayesha's commander of the Omnicraft pilots.
He was portrayed by Ben Browder.
Following the death of the Abilisk and the arrest of Nebula, Ayesha learned that Rocket Raccoon stole some of the Sovereign's Anulax Batteries. Finding this to be a disgrace, an angry Ayesha had the Admiral to summons her troops (including Zylak) to pursue and destroy the Guardians of the Galaxy in their Omnicrafts, which they virtually controlled from their planet. To that end, the Admiral ordered the pilots to take down the Guardians at all costs, despite warning Ayesha that the batteries are highly combustible and would destroy the fleet in the process.
Despite being outnumbered, the Guardians managed to evade most of the Omnicrafts by going through a meteor field, but only Zylak's ship remains in the open, ready to take them down. The rest of the Sovereign pilots crowded around Zylak's screen, encouraging him to kill the Guardians while the Admiral summons hundreds of more Omnicrafts to the scene. However, Drax uses a blaster to destroy Zylak's ship while the rest of the arriving Omnicraft would later be destroyed by the arriving Ego, much to the Admiral's distraught.
