Thank you very much
I think Amanda's prior career path rather lends itself to such things... She was initially Marcus Kane's Executive Assistant (rather than letting her get kicked out of the Academy) which I figure to be a revival of the position of Captain's Yeoman followed by a promotion and transfer to another ship as operations manager when he became Head of Intelligence, before eventually becoming a first officer. I think she's probably gotten quite used to simply 'making things work' and thinking on her feet over the years
