...why it's always only John who gets promoted.

"General" Sheppard is a frequent occurrence in SGA future-fics but I have yet to come upon a story in which Rodney has managed to become "Professor" McKay.

I know, whereas a promotion to "General" doesn't need any extra education/training/schooling outside of your job because it's a designated step on the path of a military career which you may be able to reach if you're good enough, one has to work hard in addition to a day job to earn the title of "Professor". You don't become a professor just because you are a Doctor and very, very good in your field. You have to work actively on earning the title of "Professor" - time consuming, I would guess.

But does actually nobody think that Rodney would actually strive to achieve this after the immediate threats in Pegasus have slowed down somewhat?

Or is there a different reason which I'm not seeing?

Anyway, "Professor" McKay doesn't seem to be in Rodney's future (except perhaps for total AUs).

ETA: Thanks to Istia and Clavally I'm now properly informed why it would not make sense for Rodney to want to be a professor. :-)

Who said being in fandom isn't educational? *ggg*
