how so is that "very unlikely" actually becoming a ship captain from
being a pilot is the least likely scenario, pilots are given comand of
squadrons, not warships.. Synapse would more likely than not have risen
from the ranks through this or that crew job on board a ship,
vulminating more likely as an Executive officer before making the big
leap to his own command
