Groups like that are comical - a whole brigade too top-heavy with brass to legitimately be in any battlefield together. In STO RP I have observed the same thing. I can just imagine RP fleets filled with captains and admirals, each trying to assert that he is in command, and a farce of Stooge proportions ensues.
Hey, I dont know about you, but "I am the model of a modern Major General"...
