Ranks rankle a bit

Another former Navy man checking in. I agree that (US) naval ranks from midshipman to captain make much more sense. Sure, carrier battle group commanders are admirals, but the carrier itself is still (typically) commanded by an O-6 captain. Pets or no, no one here is actually commanding a battle group in space. Leave "Commodore" as a lifer/veteran reward title or something. And (US) army rank equivalents for the KDF work out well, too.
And given that the captain of a ship is referred to as Captain whether they are lieutenants or commanders or captain, I do wish the dialogs on the fed side would reflect that. On the KDF side I don't care what they call me, I just wish they wouldn't drop my cloak.
