if hes the lead then how can a ticket ever be "fairly"?
Ok, take what I am about to say with a grain of salt... it's based on a little bit of experience with the ticket system, a little bit of experience as a moderator for the STO forums, and a dash of speculation on my part. I have no direct knowledge of Cryptic's internal operations.

I believe that forum-related support tickets are forwarded to the Website and Forums team, who are the only people with the power to control the forums.

You should also understand that Branflakes is not the only person on that team and he's not the only Community Manager. He's STO's Community Manager.

I would assume that any dispute involving Branflakes would be passed to another person on that team for review. At least that's how I interpret what the rules say about the process.

Having said that, I will also say that my experience with Branflakes shows that he does not hand out infractions lightly. If he does hand out an infraction, it will very likely stick... not because he's the Community Manager, but because he's right.
