Re: The Replacement First Officer

Not sure if the "next in line" rule is hard and fast in Starfleet. I know its not in real life. As others have said, Picard could chose his own XO or Starfleet could assign him one. In my own professional career, I've promoted from with in, brought in people from other branches, and gone outside the company to fill positions.
