also can an acting lieutenant take the con? thought it was only senior officer could?
I mean I’m not a navy expert.
ah ok. I understand now
Should Wesley’s situation be ignored in favor of the linked description, or should both be taken into account? The link says acting officers are military personnel with a temporary rank increase subject to review, while Wesley was not part of Starfleet and had no rank when he was made acting ensign. Besides, the Wesley version being put in charge of the ship is hilarious.
If you were to take the “city ship” concept seriously there’s no way you’d go all the way back to Earth to drop off new recruits at the academy. Leslie is probably in a ship board officer’s program, possibly let in early since she is only 16, and excelled at it enough to get her “acting” promotion.
I like that concept. I suppose people born on a ship truly meant to head ever outward would be taught all the Starfleet basics as part of their middle school equivilant in order to increase the chances of more acting officers.
I need to adopt Paz’s outlook on more things.
