She had been given her post as a punishment. The commodore she had kicked the crap out of had been off duty, as had she. If she had know exactly who had been groping her she probably would have just walked away, rather than take extreme umbrage. As it was, she avoided brig time - sort of.

And at least the commodore had to spring for his own prosthetic kneecap.
