Someone needs to explain why a good 95% of Starfleet Admirals are either:
a) The bad guy
b) Wrong about something
They really do seem to promote all the dickheads. Its a wonder anything gets done.
To be fair, that applies to all procedurals of any genre ever. Police dramas, medical dramas, detective dramas. You name it, the boss's boss is a lame a-hole.
Armor wouldn't do any good in the 24th century when weapons vaporize. And nobody but Data could move in duranium plate mail.
I want to know why no military in the 24th century that realized having a large amount of small, maneuverable ships is better than having a small amount of huge ships that blow up if you nick the warp core.
And why ships don't rotate the phase frequency of their shields all the time.
