Posted by Hobs202:After the Pegasus episode(s) it becomes obvious that Adama is a better at commanding the fleet than Evil-Admiral-From-Hell Cain is/was. So Roslin promotes him to Admiral
Does she have the authority to do that? She's not a member of the military, so how can she issue promotions? I had always assumed that (IRL, anyway) all promotions had to come from the top brass of the actual military branch of the individual being promoted.

*shrugs*

Well, who else is going to promote him? He can't promote himself, and Cain is definitely not going to do it. They'll probably bend a few rules, but it's not as if anyone in the fleet is going to object. Either that or Adama becomes "Acting-Admiral."
