Do you like being a Super-Captain in your story?

I can't say I'm a big fan of the "super captain" idea, but I can also see that it's the only real way to run episodes and very in keeping with the source materiel.
Personally, I divorce the "superhero" moments of my Lt Gen characters from their present reality - just as I do their rank (and, indeed, the rank of thier BOffs). Garmokh sutai Krahaan may have carried out some... unusual missions on behalf of Imperial Intelligence, but he's not the savious of the Empire.
Their written background more reflects my PVP skills... one is an exceptional staff officer but a mediocre combat captain, who gets interesting missions because II can trust him to keep his mouth shut. The other is a political appointee. And, actually, this works well with Lt Gen play where they spend most of their time exploring, duelling with the Federation (PVP) or fighting off Borg incursions (collaborative PVE).
