I certainly think it is up to the captains.  A popular vote isn't

Ok.  One option coded in my head but not in a text file is for the
captain to delegate to a selector, using the following sequence:

- captain picks their selector from the unpicked player pool, by using
  the lock or tractor keys,

- selector is moved by the server to the captain's team pick list,

- captain locks on their selector, and as a result the selector and the
  captain swap roles and positions on screen,

But this is an optional nicety.

Imagine the social dynamics of it ... a captain who is a game organiser
type rather than a strategic expert might pick the best strategist from
the pool, then delegate to them the picking of the fighters the
strategist wants to work with.
