The good Captain has remembered what being a Citizen really means.
Blind obedience to orders is not a good Citizen. A good Citizen always considers the impact of those orders on the State. Which is not its government, or its laws, but is the whole of the body of the Citizens. Laws may inform, they may guide, but since laws are made by fallible beings, they too may be in error. Do not break them lightly, but if you must, do so with the full knowledge that you will pay the consequences for doing so. You may only hope that your fellow Citizens both agree that you were right to do so, and act to support you against the Government, which holds the law as though it were a holy order which none may break, no matter how horrible the law is.
Blind obedience to orders is not a good Soldier. A good Soldier always considers whether those orders are legal under the situation that they are given. A State which is signatory to the Geneva Convention cannot blithely slaughter Soldiers of the opposition which have properly surrendered. They are now Prisoners of War, and must be treated according to the terms of the Convention. The State is now responsible for their well-being. A good Soldier is also a good Citizen. Orders are given by fallible beings, they may be wrong. Do not disobey lightly, but if you must, do so with the full knowledge that you will pay the consequences for doing so. You may only hope that your fellow Citizens/Soldiers agree that you were right to do so, and act to support you against command and the Government, both of whom have a vested interest in ensuring that Soldiers carry out their orders.
A female friend was a Soldier. She was given an order by her commanding officer to have sex with him. As it was an order, she could not lightly refuse to obey, but she could insist that he put the order in writing. She did so insist, and he -- wisely -- refused, dropping the entire subject and taking no further adverse action against her. When a subordinate insists in a non-combat situation that you put an order in writing, it is a good idea to reconsider the order. The Citizen/Soldier is reminding you that you may be stepping across the bounds of accepted behavior.
Is that a datapad the object the Captain is looking at? Looks like he is looking at some serviceman's data (servicerabbit?) Who is the rabbit in the picture? Someone who died in the previous war? A relative? Maybe his father?
Also, the answers from the AI are surprisingly deep.
Maybe it's a photo of him with his personal profile.
Looks mostly like a picture of the Captain himself, framed together with either a set of rank insignia or possibly an award of some kind, and a few lines of basic info (name, subject, date...).
