Haha.

Honestly, I don't think people are as passionate about what the corresponding Klingon titles are although I have seen some chafe at Dahar Master becoming common.

I'm not sure how Survey Monkey guards against that, if it logs MAC addresses. I'm showing 23 results so far.

It's push polling anyway. So it's more about force of opinion that pure scientific accuracy.

At least a dozen vice admirals at any time, mining rocks on an asteroid for a small slice of profit; such is the lengths we will go to avoid paperwork at the desk job.

(Not that captains would be doing that, either, just sayin' :p)

Voted for Captain; always been a proponent of that. If it's too late to overhaul the whole thing, the least they can do is let us pick our own designation, not unlike the matching titles. I've always found it amusing that it stops at Vice Admiral, of all ranks—it's as if they got there and realized, oh man, we can't have thousands of full-fledged Admirals running around, but it's too late to go back to Captain ... let's just ... stop here, at Vice Admiral, before we make it worse!

Dump them all and make everyone a captain rank... You can be a lvl 10 Captain. You can be a lvl 50 Captain...

A Lieutenant in charge of a star ship makes no sense..

I agree with this idea. Just completely separate rank from level.
Maybe leveling up could be changed to a "commendation ceremony" for distinguished acts of service, instead of a "rank promotion".

Not as one sided as I expected so far:

Captain (22 votes) - 62.9%
Fleet Admiral (9 votes) - 25.7%
Admiral (2 votes) - 5.7%
Vice Admiral (1 vote) 2.9%
Rear Admiral, Lower Half (1 vote) 2.9%

Rank should just be a display name (separate from titles) unlocked at different levels, so the players can decide what they want to display. That display name could be tied with the [Rank] dialogue tag so players can be referred to this rank accordingly in missions.

Separate rank and level, make everyone happy.

I voted, Captains, we should all be Captains. Commodores, Fleet Captains, Admirals, Generals, all that mess should be reserved for mission-giving NPCs, and mission giving NPCs should be streamlined to a maximum of ten per faction (instead of the 15+ per faction we have now).
