Do you think it could be possible at some point to have NPCs that give out missions to refer to us by which ever of our titles we choose in edit record. Basically If I were to choose Career Officer as my title and got a mission from an NPC they would refer to my character as Career Officer (insert name). I think it would be nice if we got a use out of these titles that we can actually see, and it helps people who don't want their character to go by admiral by actually allowing an NPC to refer to them as captain if they want.
I think this is one of those things like sitting on chairs tech was for the team.
We will see it at some point, its probably just not a huge priority in the wake of crew mechanics, ground combat revamp, new weekly series etc. Thats not to say they won't get to it, but its probably not something you should except around the corner untill something is announced on an engineering report or future ask cryptic.
Personally I give my VA admiral character the captain titles and captain pips on there uniform. It would be nice to have NPCs refer to me as captain but its not a huge thing for me.
