Re: Idea for A STAR TREK SERIES "Star Trek, Red Squad"

The cadet/LT thing is very easily rectified: Kirk was using the Academy as an OCS rather than a 4 year commissioning program/undergraduate program. Pike mentioned that Kirk was a genius, I could easily see him having bounced around from college to college, stacking up credits. Plus he mentions that he'd do the Academy in 3 years, something that would be easier if he only needed it for the Starfleet aspect and not the undergraduate. Granted, in today's army, you wouldn't go to West Point if you already had a college degree, but perhaps in the Federation, all commissioning programs for Starfleet take place at SF Academy.
