hey!i hope youre having a good day! so i just started planning my 2017 nano project and my mc gets promoted to admiral p much in the first five minutes (jsyk its star trek fic so chances are not everything you can tell me will be relevant) and i was wondering what exactly does an admiral do? like, whats their job? what kind of problems might they run into? what would an average day look like? thank you so much!
Sorry it took me so long to answer this question, @peskylilcritter - real life has been a bear and I’ve been away from this blog.
Since I’ve never been an admiral (although I did serve on the staff of one, staffs are huge, and I was a mid-level cog in the works that saw the admiral once a week), I’m going to defer to my previous answer to this kind of question. I don’t think I could add anything to this answer.
I’ve watched enough Star Trek to say that I think the information would definitely be relevant - and that I bet Starfleet Admirals get mired up in minutiae all the time. It strikes me that no one is as good at pointless admin as the Federation, so I’d focus on all the stupid things that come their way that seem pointless. Remember that every admiral has a boss, and that boss will always want more information than even your admiral wants to give them.
Good luck with NaNo!
