Starfleet is an incredibly large organization with many different branches. Starships, the backbone of Starfleet are, explore the galaxy and serve as the primary line of defense for the Federation. There are also starbases and ground facilities throughout the Federation that often have a similar roster of senior staff as Starfleet ships. Not to mention special branches of Starfleet that are focused on specific issues like legal matters and courts martial, intelligence-gathering, or medicine. And we can’t forget those highest-ranked admirals at Starfleet Command who oversee the entire organization!
Each Starfleet officer has their own specializations and their own ambitions for their time in Starfleet. Not everyone wants to be an admiral or rise all the way through the ranks. Every Starfleet officer isn’t in it for the long run. The galaxy offers plenty to see and do beyond Starfleet. Or they might just like what they do and not want to take on different responsibilities.
