Too bad he couldn’t have been the last captain of the USS Enterprise.

how long will it be before someone under his command says something bad about gays and he’s sent into retirement.

Hmmm, direct fire weapons hitting the reverse slopes of their targets. Must be the ammo.

and despite the efforts of the SWO community, CVN captains are still aviators.

Perhaps an ancestor of another Captain James Kirk?

He looks exactly like I’d expect a naval officer who spent his entire career withstanding jokes and snickers about his name. You know it was brought up at promotion boards, among office staff, with his kids, pretty much everywhere, probably at least once a week for well over twenty years. That is a lifetime of balled up fury composed into a single photograph. I would not want to be standing in front of him for his first captain’s mast.
