Why is an E5 running the ship? Shouldn't an O6 or the ship's mind be running the ship? Why does the petty officer have to be out-ranked by warrant officers to do it? If the E5 knows enough orbital mechanics and so forth to run the ship, how come we don't have to pay him like a highly-skilled warrant officer?

Given that automation and robots in the ship leave no tasks to do other than ones that require highly-skilled technicians, then if all the highly-skilled technicians are warrant officers, we seem to have the lowest-ranked person in the spaceship running it. I think that is odd.
