I didn't mind Kirk's promotion from cadet to captain as he saved the Federation.
In the West careers usually progress slowly and steadily upwards, we are used to the idea that it takes time to reach a certain position and that you only lose it if you really mess up. Yet such a system is not meritocratic. Kirk's instant promotion on the other hand is. Best one gets the job, simple as that.
When you tell the truth and take a stand, sometimes it means that you will walk the streets with a burdened heart. Sometimes it means losing a job, means being abused and scorned. It may mean having a seven, eight year old child asking a daddy, "Why do you have to go to jail so much?" And I've long since learned that to be a follower to the Jesus Christ means taking up the cross. And my bible tells me that Good Friday comes before Easter. - MLK, Why I Am Opposed to the War in Vietnam
