Is Admiral Howard capable of doing the job?

If so, what possible relevance can either sex or race be to the rank?

Her jacket looks solid.

Captain Winifred Collins award.
Chief engineer, USS Mount Hood.
First Lieut., USS Flint
XO, USS Tortuga.
CO, USS Mount Rushmore.
Command ESG 2, flag on USS Boxer.

She's a mustang. Came up through the ranks. Done enough sharp end to know what it's about, a few years ashore to know how the game is played.

Hope you are correct. If she is qualified then so be it.
