Star trek I, Kirk conned his way into it. For over 2 years previously he'd been star fleet's chief of operations.

Star trek II: again he was merely a passenger when Star fleet ordered him to Regulus. Infact he didn't want to take command of the ship in the first place, he just told Spock to get him there. Spock told him to take over since it was combat duty and Spock was a better teacher than combat officer.

Star Trek III: well ofcourse kirk stole the enterprise. Why he was demoted in 4.

Bad example. Kirk's a loose cannon anyway and, as talonxv pointed out, there were extenuating circumstances in all those cases.

I hate these threads they're so annoying and most people fail to realize THE STORY RECOGNIZES ONLY ONE VICE ADMIRAL AND WHATNOT SO THERE ARENT MILLIONS OF ADMIRALS.

Extenuating circumstances for Starfleet Command, anyway... all you can really blame them for is letting him within 20 miles of a starship!

There's a such thing as separation between story and the player's ability to enjoy the story. If something breaks your suspension of disbelief, then you're well in your right to complain about it. The story may recognize only one vice-admiral but that's no help when you're flying in sector space and get passed by twelve of them in a group. I mean, at that point you either assume that Star Fleet has been taken over (Again) by aliens who know what rank is, but not how it works or admirals are like whales and travel in groups in order to defend themselves from natural predators.

That's all officers. It's what they teach us in our secret meetings.

We can't give you a squadron so we need a good excuse to keep you captaining instead of pushing papers.
