In military history, the ranking officer would often accompany a landing party when going ashore. During the Age of Sail, the Captain of a vessel was the law. Moreover, ancient militaries led by example, and leaders often had to demonstrate their heroism to their men. This continued even to the the 20th Century, where Captains would leave the safety of their vessels to negotiate, such as when the Germans in [[WWII]] attempted to convince French Captains to surrender their vessels at Toulon.

In [[TOS]], the Captain and his ship were analogies to the Age of Sail. The Captain was the law, and Captain Merrik in "Bread and Circuses" remarked on the special nature of a starship and its crew. Captain Tracy complimented Kirk on the high degree of training of his bridge crew in "The Omega Glory." Most likely Captain Kirk was one of a special breed of commanders, cultivated specifically for dangerous away missions.
