What is the real life progression from Cadet on up to Captain?
From my understanding, about 20-30 years of service. After 4 years of academy training, graduate as an Ensign. 1-2 years of service = Lt. JG. 2-3 years = Lt. After this the time period between promotions is quite long, even for the most competent officers. There was a very detailed answer given to me by another poster in the "Didn't like the movie? What would you have done?" thread.
