* In Creator/DianeDuane's ''Series/{{Star Trek|The Original Series}}: TOS'' novel ''Doctor's Orders'', Dr. [=McCoy=] is given the con during a First Contact mission as part of a joke by Kirk. Then Kirk disappears into a temporal anomaly, a Klingon warship shows up, and Starfleet regulations won't allow [=McCoy=] to hand over command to any line officer until relieved by Kirk or Federation brass. Which means he's stuck in command in the middle of a major crisis with everyone's lives depending on his command training (which he does not have) and military ability. He does well enough that upon learning that that he was the ship's physician, the Klingon captain remarks that he needs to kill ''his'' ship's physician if they were all like [=McCoy=] -- KlingonPromotion being what it is. [=McCoy=] then tells him there's more than one reason; based on [=McCoy's=] diagnosis of the Klingon's health either his physician is outright incompetent, or is ''already'' trying to gain command of the ship by giving him substandard care.

-->'''[=McCoy=]''': As strange as it may seem, Mister Spock, you're in command now. Any orders?
-->'''Spock''': Yes. I'll follow you up in a few minutes. You will instruct Mister Chekov to plot a course for the nearest Starbase where I must surrender myself to the authorities.

* During UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution and the War of 1812, the British wore, like everyone else, BlingOfWar, especially their officers (even though the Americans were no different in this regard). The Americans, used to hunting, could aim (even with muskets, even though they had to get very close to do so), and would chose the most visible targets. As a consequence, after the Battle of Bunker Hill and the Battle of New Orleans, certain British regiments were under the command of the senior ''private''.

"Well, who is in command then? What do you mean, 'I am'?"
