Manticore is likely to keep 2 squadrons in the TQ also Marsh in the long Term for various reasons including the good old waving the flag also the MA is still out there.
Althought mike maybe a while getting back to the TQ as dealing with Mesa may take a while.
Also their is the need to cycle all sorts of personel especially senor officers so they become familiar with these sectors of the Empire.
The more experience senor officers have in different areas the better they will do later when in the Admiralty

You are also overlooking other flag officers we haven't seen in a while like VADM Yancey Parks and ADM Aristophones Georedis. You might also see senior RHN personnel like ADM Tourville and ADM Chin take secondary command positions as they try to combine the RHN and RMN. They could also recall retired Admirals for Administration and training commands. Remember VADM Jonus Adcock he served until he was over 100 T-years old.

I think the point we all need to keep in mind is that the RMN has literally hundreds of flag officers at or above RAdm, many of whom have never been named. We're throwing names out simply because RFC has a (IMO bad) habit of having the same characters pop up again and again and again in increasingly senior roles over the course of the series, when in a real navy that's not as true.

Don't get me wrong, seeing already-established characters appearing in many books is great for story telling and reader continuity purposes, but it also has the effect of only really showing us a deep look into slice of the entire RMN rather than a shallower (or perhaps spottier would be better) look at the much larger organization.

One might imagine Admiral Chin, given her interesting experiences, opting for early retirement. She might then have a brilliant success writing age of sail sea stories in collaboration with not-quite-retired Harringtons.
