Why did the U.N.S. military allow Karl Tagon to serve as an officer in Tagon's Toughs after the company's first stint working for the Oafans? It's well-established that the U.N.S. gets displeased with its generals becoming prominent in other organizations. Karl said as much himself the first time he joined up with the Toughs, in what became the alternate timeline:
I told you, I can't take a job with any military outfit. Celeschul law: ex-generals have quiet retirements, or treason trials.
Under somewhat different circumstances, this was pointed out to Xinchub as well:
The U.N.S. has very strict laws regarding officers deserting their posts and becoming kings.
In that first case, Tagon's presence was explained away as role-playing, and the U.N.S. had bigger problems on its plate (i.e. the Paan'uri war) right up until the point when those bigger problems destroyed the galaxy. However, he's now employed as a commodore in less frantic circumstances, which I doubt can be hand-waved away as a fantasy camp experience. So why didn't anyone go after him, even though he entered U.N.S. territory? Did the U.N.S. not know about his new job? Could the reward of capturing and trying him not have been worth the risk? Was the company's diplomatic immunity shielding him? Or was something else going on?
