Herschel isn't one for career advancement or command he enjoys tinkering and making things work better. Hence why the 38 year old is still sitting at a full lieutenant. Herschel enjoys being able to get his hands dirty, being involved with projects and problem solving, he didn't like the politics of directorships.
Herschel keeps a clean appearance clean shaven; hardly ever see him with 5 a'clock shadow, his blond hair always perfect and kept at the same length only new things that appear are wrinkles mainly around his eyes and forehead. Even at 38 Herschel looks much older than again all the males in his family were that way.
