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.
