Promotion Freeze

I wouldn't worry about it too much.

The Galaxy Brief was issued in 2006, implemented in 2007 and the freeze was intended to be in place for 5 years, so you are unlikely to be eligible for promotion to Lt Cdr by the time promotion is "unfrozen".

There may be a knock-on effect from clogging up the pipeline ahead of you, but my experience of these measures is that the RN usually overdo it and create shortages that need to be urgently filled. Anyone remember the "Black Hole" caused by the recruiting freeze in the early 90s?

Oh, and by the way, the Life in a Blue Suit is only the view of one person who left after 6 years, so I'd use it sparingly, especially the career aspects. You're better off getting up to date info from your ACLO.
