The real drama(s) are with the folks on the ground and their potential to uplift or destroy the islands' precarious hold on existence. And making friends and enemies in higher circles; both of which may come back to revisit the PCs at some unexpected point in their adventures.
That makes sense. Obviously since Christiansen is the captain, and even a player character of similar rank would not be able to just order her around, it would be possible support subject to DM desires or to party persuasion.
