Admirals shouldnt be running around in the face of danger a phaser beam away from being obliterated...Captains should!

I thought that was what the player's title should be...so maybe in a future update the devs can explore these possibilities...

1. The option to voluntarily downgrade/refuse your military rank (while keeping your skill points and access to everything else of course)

or

2. The abillity to set a bridge officer to captain your ship (has to be the same "class" as you, Science Admirals delegate to Science BOFFs only) functioning with the same spec as your admiral

Im not saying EVERYONE has to downgrade your cosmetic military rank...but the option to would be nice



What do you think?

I think it's worse in that I'm sometimes called 'Vice Admiral'. Yes, I am aware it's my rank, but it just seems disjointed...

You may have noticed while leveling that the longer strings for ranks add to the mess. It's both awkward and a little ridiculous when NPCs yell out "Rear Admiral Lower Class" and things like that to you, especially in combat. No one does that; Admiral would suffice regardless.

They should have what the NPC call you tied to your chosen title. In some respects, that would be hillarious.

"Help Frozen John Doe. We are being attacked by raiders. We are defenseless. "

At least that way you would have a choice in what you are called.

Yep.

Having the abliity to set what you are called off the Titles list would be a VAST improvement.

('Course no one but fleet leaders should be Admirals....but that's a whole 'nother ball of wax )

" HAve you seen the Torpedo Target XXX, he was amazing" Sounds legit Or all the orions " have you seen Moist XXX*****" sounds legit.

This has been suggested repeatedly over the years. They apparently have no interest in fixing it.

Fleet leaders should be titled depending on the size of fleet

Just them "Lonely"
2-20 characters "admiral"
21-50 "fleet admiral"
51+ "janitor"

Hey, it's the Devs who threw in titles like 'moist.'

And if a character wants to have all the NPCs call him that - well more power to him. It's always better to be able to choose for yourself what you wished to be addressed as than be 'forced' to endure a 'Have you seen it Rear Admiral, Lower Half?' (or even just plain 'Admiral') when let's say you'd rather be addressed as 'Captain' - or yes, even 'Torpedo Target' lol.

Just think of non-rank titles as monikers like fighter pilots have - "Maverik" or "Goose" for examples.
