I had a problem with that scene, and this episode, as well. I could be off with the military rankings as I haven't been following Frontier TOO closely, but doesn't Klan outrank Michel? I mean, I know she's a captain, but I suppose her leadership is over the Pixie squad and doesn't actually extend over Alto/Michel, and co., despite Alto always talking to her like she's his commanding officer.
It's just that, if Michel pulled the shit he pulled in this ep (I.E., his personal, emotional troubles not only screwing up his performance but nearly getting his teammates killed, then not owning up to it, then going Full-Metal-Psycho on said teammates for being angry and starting a fight/injuring them), don't you get seriously reprimanded for that kind of shit? I mean, demerits, time in the brig, punished, spanked (mmm, Klan spankings), ANYTHING?
I mean, his whiny ass was totally at fault. And he didn;t even apologize about his behavior to Alto or anything.
