"...I'm not anyone! I'm me!"
Yes, sweetheart, you are, and that's why we love you all for it. I don't know if you've written the story of Hank being booted off-ship, but if you haven't, the hint to his antics here is just priceless. And nasty. But definitely one-hundred percent expert trolling.
Ah, yes, the often referenced story of how he got booted off his first ship. It's never been written, actually, as young Hank is so much different from Captain Hank. Out of the Academy he's got a chip on his shoulder, suffering from heartache, and is treated like the rookie he is aboard his new ship. He's rough, but there's a diamond there. It just takes years for anyone to polish him up enough to see it. The Dominion War was a really sobering experience for him, one which really acted as a big catalyst for him not being so cocky, arrogant, and difficult. But that's another story for another day. What he did here was quite nasty (and would later inspire Sarah to do something similar, as you see). Thanks for the review. :)
