Re: The Admirals character makes no sense whatsoever

Ok so how did this guy become an Admiral?
Starfleet Admirals have almost always been evil, corrupt, or just a general pain in the ass. One of the few decent ones was Admiral Ross, and even he collaborated with Section 31.

The character just doesnt make any sense at all.
They could have been a bit clearer with his motivations and he does come off as a clichéd moustache-twirling bad guy. And Vengeance is as subtle as a sledgehammer. But the basics of the character make sense. He's a Starfleet Admiral who feels he needs to militarize Starfleet to save the Federation from its own pacifism.
