Re: President Bacco's Future (Spoilers)
Well Akaar generally seems to be a character that suffers from stick up the ass syndrome, but even though has his sympathetic moments even if he's not totally likable. There are worse Admirals to be had for sure. Bacco... just seemed to be stressed out about her job(who wouldn't given the crap she put up with?) and trying to do the best she can. I wouldn't blame her one bit for passing the baton on retiring back to Cestus. Only thing I could really see keeping her in office is a sense of obligation if the forerunner is somehow corrupt or incompetent. Section 31 presidency anyone?
