How about that Mlady has a doctorate.
Justice Irons requires every officer on her boat above the level of ensign to have a doctorate (or equivalent) and all officers from ensign up to be licensed by the Federation Tribunal to practice law. It's an absurd requirement and no other captain in Star Fleet could get away with it. But Irons is particularly difficult to say "no" to.
Mlady's doctorate is in bioethics (perfect for a vampire...)
