5 pips?
 
I was recently attending one of my Promotion Ceremonies when I noticed this. Commander Menn Hilo appears to be wearing 5 rank pips.

Now this could be attributed to his being Master of Ceremonies, but this got me to thinking that perhaps there could be a rank between Captain and Rear Admiral Lower Half. You know, like perhaps that long ago defunct rank of Commodore? And maybe that Commander before his name was a typo?

This then got me thinking more about the possibility of a Commodore Title with a costume piece unlock that allows us to use 5 rank pips. I don't know what in-game event or mission this could be tied to but it would be a nice easy little addition to the game, don't you think?


:cool:

I saw a post somewhere were a player suggested a rank title, like a jounior grade, and a dev commented and said it will be a Doff rank...I wonder if thats what it is.

Edit found it

Commodore is the rank called "Rear Admiral, Lower Half" in game, represented by one pip in a box. it is widely accepted in fan circles that 5 pips is Fleet Captain, I'd still like to see both in game though.

That's not five rank pips - that's an admiral's rank bar. Five pips on a bar is Fleet Admiral.

Usually, by regulation, the officer conducting a promotion ceremony for "pinning on" the new rank has to be a higher rank than the promotee's soon to be rank.

This is true.

I can't speak to the rank insignia...but I like the uniform! Any chance of a guide for that, Blackavaar?

It's five admiral pips, not the lower rank pips. It would make him a Fleet Admiral.
