    The following feedback was sent via the feedback form.

    The vast majority of the Federation Fleet has a rank of Crewman.
    Do you think we could spice it up a little and make it Captain? I think it would make more sense as well.
    The short answer to this is no, but to provide a reason as to why, it is because we want to offer a sense of progression within the community, that fits around our theme, which is Star Trek. There are a lot of members at Crewman rank because they have not completed the academy exams that provide a rank increase, signed up to a volunteer role, or have not made themselves noticed within the community.

    Getting a promotion in rank can be done from the exams, to a maximum of Ensign, or through signing up as a CL4 volunteer in one of our divisions or departments, you can look here for more on those, or finally, you can get a promotion through our award ceremony, the UFPAC, which tries to recognise the members of the community who have made great effort to get themselves noticed within the community.

    Additionally, by saying that we should replace Crewman for Captain, you don't fix the problem, you just end up with a lot of Captains, and a lot less ranks to hand out to other members. You can find a list of all the medals and ranks here.

    With regards to the naming in STO, Crewman serves as a general term for those serving within a ship, like Deckhand, or similar, it is not a rank, but more a title. It can of course also be used as a rank, but in the case of STO, it is not. Captain was considered I believe, but thrown out because it might get confusing for those looking for officers of the fleet. Please note, if it's a gaming matter, it should be a PM discussion sent to the division CO/XO and possibly the Head of Gaming to look into.

    If you have any further questions, please feel free to get in touch, and if anyone else wishes to weigh in, please respond to the thread!

    I personally love the enlisted ranks. Looking around the forums there are actually more officers than anything, I'll go the same route as DARK and make Warrant Officer my goal!
