Re: Pedantic Star Trek discussion #134: Riker's Field Commission

As others have said, peoples perspectives and goals change. They might want to be in command early on but as they grow older they become happy where they are.

I don't think you need even look as far as the military to see that, business have managers (CO)and deputy managers (XO) it might be fair to say that when some of those deputy mangers started out they had aims of one day being manager, but eventually for whatever reason decided to stay in the deputy role.

Which is worth more happiness or being in charge?
