Character Ranks... Beyond RA!
Hey All,

In preparation of the upcoming skill cap increases over the course of future developments, here is a brief write-up of the currently planned character ranks!

Q: What are "grades"?

Grades are the levels in between the Ranks. For example, you are a Lieutenant at level 1, 2, 3, 4, etc, all the way up to 10, meaning there are 10 separate "grades" for the Lieutenant Rank.

Format: Federation Name/Klingon Name


Levels: 1-10
Tier: 1
Grades: 10

Lt. Commander//Lt. Commander
Levels: 11-20
Tier: 2
Grades: 10

Levels: 21-30
Tier: 3
Grades: 10

Levels: 31-40
Tier: 4
Grades: 10

Rear Admiral, Lower Half//Brigadier General
Levels: 41-45
Tier: 5
Grades: 5

Rear Admiral, Upper Half//Major General
Levels: 46-50
Tier: 5
Grades: 5

---Planned Level Cap for Update 2: Level 51---

Vice Admiral//Lt. General
Levels: 51-55
Tier: 5

That actually clears up quite a bit of confusion. Thanks for the info. :)

I remain in the camp that we should at least have the option of using Commodore instead of Rear Admiral Lower Half. I mean, who wants to be promoted from Rear Admiral to... Rear Admiral...?

All Tier 5 Ships?

I hope we will see more ships soon.

Instead of Rear Admiral, Lower Half, why not Commodore? I know it might require some adjustment to what's already in game, but the upper half/lower half terminology feels.... ungainly.

Agreed on the commodore idea. After all, TOS had several Commodores, so they are Canonical.

Great to see this stickied in a place everyone will be able to see.

Please consider adding "Commodore" as an unlockable title by all Rear Admirals (lower half). Since this is the new name for the old Commodore rank, let players decide which title they would like to use.

So for fleet admiral, we control a fleet of ships (1 flagship and 4 or more regular ships) just like an away team? Would certainly be interesting if true.

I anticipate a very long thread...

Nice to see the level cap increase, but how about additional tiers and ships to go with them, or weapons-grade increases? (MK XII, XIV, etc).
