She knew she wasn't the first or the last junior officer to leave the battle with an early command, but she certainly felt the least qualified.
It would be easy to think this a story where the impossible of a junior officer ends up with the command of a ship. But you have caveats in here that make the incredulous of that situation less incredulous. First, is the fact it is until someone else can take over - yes the probability is that there won't be some one else but it is still a distinction amid the loss of life and the threat facing the Federation currently. But I like the fact that it is here St. Peter's own call that she feels herself to be the least qualified. It seems she will quickly have to adjust and quickly have to prove herself to herself. I think I will look forward to that challenge being met.

Yikes: she got promoted and left with overseeing the repair of her ship as well as the putting back together of her friend. What a horrid series of events and yet it's so RIPE with story telling possibilties. I've enjoyed Jessica's little tale so far. Looking forward to more.

Jess has certainly earned her spurs, and given the recent attrition in Starfleet's command ranks, she's likely to keep them. She's sure to discover command isn't easy, and can be terribly alienating, most especially for someone who was such a social butterfly.
