If an Admiral is aboard said vessel, the Admiral can give an order to the Captain – but if the Admiral and the Captain give conflicting orders to a midshipman, the midshipman is obliged to obey the CAPTAIN. (Which a smart Admiral will of course already know, which is why a smart Admiral will not make such a mistake in the first place)

Compare this to Star Trek: TNG. If Picard had an elite special agent sent directly from Starfleet HQ to be transported by the Enterprise… Picard would not tolerate this kind of crap. In fact, they DID occasionally have elite operatives and special envoys sent directly from Starfleet HQ to be transported by the Enterprise, and Picard never did tolerate this kind of crap.

Or to put it another way, if the King wants to reprimand Captain Roh for enforcing discipline on her ship and exercising her own discretion, he can come do it in person. Until then, Typh is about one more “I don’t have to respect anyone else but you all have to respect me” away from spending the duration of the voyage in the brig.

Typh has a low threshold for bullshit. Roh, unlike Galden has shown a low threshold for bullshit. She neither gives it OR takes it.

Nah.

The cover story between Gauden and the King is that Typh is there to protect her and she will do that to some degree, but, that all that Gauden knows about Typh true mission. Now Typh is going to reveal some of her true mission on a need to know basses with each cover story she tell us, with this being the first cover story she telling. So we can expect maybe two or three more cover stories in the future when Typh needs to inform or tell people in the future too. We won’t get the last cover story of what this is all about until we get to near the end of this story arc. We aren’t any where close to that end yet, so we aren’t getting final cover story yet of what really going on.

This could take awhile.

“Your FACE is in jail!”
“You cheated!”
“Your FACE cheated!”
“Huh…?”
