But yeah, if he was the protege of a powerful enough admiral, he could have made Captain in 10 years.

Look at old WW2 movies - there were very young army colonels out there, which is the same rank as a Captain in the navy.
Not sure, there is that line dialogue about Tryla Scott in 'Conspiracy', as was mentioned earlier, but he may well have been the record holder at that point in time!
