Ugh, Ashoka.  It was bad enough making every random Jedi a commander in an army, but kids!  Jeez.  So stupid.

She did mature quite well over the course of the series, but remember: Palpatine's plan wasn't about finding competent commanders and winning.  It was about involving the Jedi in the war, to kill them.

I don’t see Ashoka getting a commander card; she primarily seems to direct starfighter and ground combat, and is outranked by everyone else on that list.

Maybe as a Mon Mothma-style commander?

There was a whole EPISODE on her being a Commander, and the Marg-Sable lives in through it.

It was a single episode centered around her character development, though.  Neither the lesson nor the naval role stuck.

Ahsoka: *ignores big picture and advice from people who better understand the situation*

Clones: *die*

Ahsoka: Guess I learned my lesson.

Ahsoka on Felucia: *ignores big picture and advice from people who better understand the situation*

Clones: *die*

But the tactic did!

Sure.  It just doesn't mean Ahsoka should be commanding a fleet when she's almost exclusively seen in other roles (heck, she only got the job over Ryloth after getting Yularen injured and when Anakin was busy.)  Officer?  Sure.  Ace?  Absolutely.  Boarding team?  I'll buy it.  Admiral... not sold.

And yet...  Mon Mothma.

Is political leadership.  So while she might not be coordinating broadsides, I could absolutely see her dictating an overall battle strategy.  Which Ahsoka wouldn't and doesn't do unless the upper levels of leadership are unavailable.

Ultimately, I'm content with agreeing to disagree on Ahsoka being a commander.  What's basically guaranteed is that she gets one or more roles in the CW era, and that's great.

I'm just...  I guess I'm having a hard time seeing what the criteria is for qualification, that's all...

 

I mean, sure. Mothma is a Political leader, but in her own words, deliberately leaves off the grand strategy and tactical works to Admirals and Generals...  The times we see her, it is only ever as a Political leader - even in Rebels, she leaves Tactical decisions to Hera at the time...  Her greatest command is, basically, "you do it.

So when we get to Ahsoka, we have record of her at least attempting to do so, and we're shown - from that point onward - that she is indeed, a direct commander and leader...  So I just figure, she'd qualify...

Now, is she a priority qualification given the rest?  **** no.  Personally, I'd be fine if we left the Jedi for the Squadrons and Upgrades, and kept it at Admirals, Captains and Commanders (Clones or Not) for Fleet Commanders...  But we know that's not going to happen :)
