Yeah there's absolutely a Trek vein running through this show, Chandler even bangs the green alien chicks, or in this case a greek warlord's daughter.

I wonder how his Greek girlfriend with whom he left his children will feel about that.

And there should really be a sense of urgency to go get his kids, if for no other reason than the villains know where he was living and will probably go there first when hostage-shopping.

Haven't seen the show, I assume there are no locks? Or is it really comical like they're in the Caribbean and trying to get into the pacific and completely forgot the name of the country they're passing through?

I would love if that happened and all of a sudden instead of greasy greek warlords with an inexplicably functional ship they have to start fighting 18th century pirates or something.

He's seen all the Star Trek movies and knows better. Besides, they can't keep more than one ship going.

According to Battlestar Galactica an Admiral has command of more than 1 ship. This was the best source I could find.

Ah, but I read the Wiki for Tom Chandler and it said that he was offered a promotion to Admiral but turned it down as prefers being a Captain.

I don't know why I cared enough about this stupid show to look this up but there you go.

Admirals don't command ships, usually. That's a Captains job.

Admirals don't interfere with the running of a ship in the navy, if they are on-board.

Admirals command battle groups basically.

You must have taken the same class as my wife because now in every book, TV series, or movie, she had to identify the "Jesus figure" and then spend an hour talking about The Great Conversation. I asked her once, what if the writer is an atheist or Buddhist... There will still be a Jesus figure according to her.
