Rakeeb is a Perseid scientist who worked under Hohne and was his assistant. He was extremely talented, especially in the field of theoretical physics. He assisted Hohne in creating a quantum teleporter and later arrived on board the Andromeda Ascendant with Hohne, to help Seamus Harper build a Tesseract machine to remove the Magog larvae from his body, which were hatching. While creating the machine, they accidentally caused Tesseracts to warp in from the future, stranding people and wreaking chaos on Xinti, which the Andromeda was orbiting. Meanwhile, Hohne was killed so that Harper could live. Rakeeb attempted to stop the Magog larvae from being extracted to save Hohne, but he failed.


"Temporal flux. Oh dear."

"Not did. Will do. These events are emanating from the future."

Rakeeb: There was nothing we could do. It was fate. Irrevocable destiny.
Harper: Bull. It was bad luck, stupidity. There's no such thing as destiny.
Rakeeb: But the universe is entangled on a quantum level. Who's to say how one event is bound to another? Perhaps all things are predetermined.
Harper: All right, the only thing predetermined is that you are going to shut up, or I'm going to stuff that chin in your mouth and shut you up.
Rakeeb: Your human tendency toward violence.
Harper: Pales in comparison to my human tendency not to give up. We are going to find that machine. We are going to make sure nobody else dies because of it, and nothing is going to stop us. Not even the laws of temporal mechanics. Comprende?
Rakeeb: Mmm hmm. Mmm hmm. Beyond all margin for error.
