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.


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."
