Commander's reason for allowing his daughter to buy a millipede. Best Parent Ever!
There's something impressive with how Commander Badass is derailing his handlers' plans for him by being incredibly emotionally stable. The white rebellion is just a cherry on top.
The Commander managed to get Marketing to agree to let him punch the Admiral. Once. No strings attached. At a time of his choosing. Preferably in a public place. And he's saving it for later. As mentioned many times by fans, the Admiral (who's admittedly a bit of a dick) is going to be looking over his shoulder every time he and the Commander are in the same room.
Commander: It ain't about me hittin' him, it's about him knowin' they're gonna let me.
