In Consideration of the Starport and Cantina instituting member ranks, I was wondering if anybody thought about how the Officer Ranks should be designated.


Most would assume the Naval ranks of the wet navy and/or Coast Guard, since this seems to be the typical Sci-Fi convention. However certain 50's thought would have brought it under the Air Force nomenclature. Then again we could end up with a two part type system akin to the Navy with the Marines, where certain space force divisions used one while different divisions used the other.

If you could, would you create a new ranking system? and if so, what would it be?
