I think that Miles was thrown into the deep end. Most fresh Ensigns or 
Lieutenants won't be thinking about this at all. I think that Admiral 
Oser had hired fundamentally good people, for the most part. And there 
was Captain Tung.

I don't think Miles had thought about the details and organization until 
his new Dendarii mercenaries started asking about Fleet procedures, 
employment benefits, etc.
