Admiral Zorah had been against assigning the mission to the Explorer-rated ship commanded by his own mother, but not because he was worried about her safety. Rather, he insisted, he lacked confidence in her ability to deal with complications that might arise, since she had spent his entire life as a Halo researcher and come to exploration only recently. The others, knowing that her technical prowess exceeded that of any other Explorer captain in the Quarian Navy, overruled him.
"since she had spent _his_ entire life" -- am I parsing that correctly as a strange, albeit creative, way of saying "since she, as far as -he- knew, had spent -her- entire life a Halo researcher"?
