First of all, LOL.

Second of all, thanks for reminding us all (including me) what this thread was supposed to be about.
And Pike specifically said they can be an officier in 4 years (and have their own ship in 8), while Kirk boasted he'd do it in 3, which he did He's under the official grade, for sure, but his talent proved enough to fill that gap

Helping save the Federation probably had a hand in it too

Was named Trek17, but still an author.
