Bobby Jensen is an ex-business partner and ex-boyfriend of Beka Valentine. Bobby and Beka were very close, and did many jobs together, both legitimate and illegal. However, their relationship ended when Bobby hired Seamus Harper, from Earth, to help Beka Valentine smuggle computers past a Nietzschean blockade. It turns out, however, that Bobby deceived Beka, and that the Maru was actually smuggling stolen missiles. After this incident, they broke up and separated, with Bobby leaving the Maru. However, in C.Y. 10088, he manipulates Beka Valentine, Seamus Harper and Dylan Hunt by faking his death in the Cascada system, in order to lure the Andromeda Ascendant to his location. It also turns out that Bobby has suffered grave injuries after having stepped on a mine some long time before, which resulted in him having to be modified into a cyborg to survive. Bobby wants to help the Mugani (the enslaved natives of Cascada) and set them free with the help of Andromeda. In truth, however, he seeks to secretly rule them in the colonists' place, in collaboration with his new lover Margot. Bobby successfully lures and capture the Maru, but the Andromeda is tipped off when Dylan secretly informs the Commonwealth ship of the kidnapping via Morse Code. Bobby makes no attempt to end the conflict peacefully, and the Andromeda Ascendant threatens to destroy the Maru if it is used to aid the Mugani. In a climactic fight, Bobby is killed by Beka through electrocution, using one of Maru's power lines. ("Be All My Sins Remembered")


Bobby had a very abrasive personality, even towards Beka. He was overprotective of her, and was hostile to everyone. He and Harper never got along, and in fact they had a mutual dislike for each other.


"Funny, isn't it? People won't show up to help you, but they'll show up at your funeral."

"Is that what you think you are? Hostages? We're all good guys here!"

"This is what to tell Andromeda. No ad libs."

"If you're not with me, you're against me."

"Just like before? No, I didn't think so. That's why I have to win. It's all I got."

"Beka! I told you, I'm a lot less vulnerable than I used to be!"
