That is a very enlightened POV .

However, I do have to question what are you doing in a Star Trek universe without adopting the good values Star Trek enshrines.
The "good values" that Trek enshrines also include busting your butt at SF academy , and a slooooooooooow climb up the ranks .

This move by Cryptic is akin to the JJ style "from cadet-to-captain , meet the New Captain Kirk !" .
Getting shoved out an air-lock and running away from an arctic monster does not qualify you to captaincy . Neither does pounding Spock's fist with your face .
JJ Kirk is no more Veteran than the next guy/gal who have $200 to burn .
