1016 - Bridge On The Captain?

You know, I'm reading the Agony Booth's recap on Star Trek: Insurrection. And one of the first things the writer does is bring up how many commanders are on the Enterprise... which is true. Outside of Picard, every other senior crew member is either a Commander or Lieutenant Commander. (Funny bit: The writer assumes that Data's cat might be a commander by proxy.)

Apparently, nobody clued the writer to Star Trek V and Star Trek VI, two films that took place on the U.S.S. Enterprise 1701-A... a starship with THREE CAPTAINS. Even though commander of the ship was Captain Kirk (because, you known, Captain Fucking Kirk), Spock and Scotty also held the rank of captain during these two films. (Spock having been captain since Star Trek II and Scotty getting promoted in the following film).
