Re: The Continuity and Serialization of Voyager

Rank has nothing to do with technical skill.

A good officer should be able to be planted into any department and thrive.

It's about (human) resource management.

How many crew/officers your superiors think that you're competent enough to give orders to/take responsibility for.

Compare it to learning to juggle.

Petty officers can juggle 3 balls, Ensigns can juggle 5 balls, and way up the top of the command pyramid there are admirals juggling a dozen working turned on chainsaws.
