The IAN ranks Leutnant der Sterne, Oberleutnant der Sterne, and Kapitän der Sterne parallel the German naval ranks of Leutnant zur See, Oberleutnant zur See, and Kapitän zur See (which are distinguished from the Army ranks of Leutnant, Oberleutnant and Oberst). However, since the IAN is a space navy rather than a wet navy, the titles are "of the stars" (der Sterne) rather than "at sea" (zur See).

References Edit

  1. Most People's Navy Admirals considered the use of the term "Citizen" a "comic book opera" at best, and rebelled against it by breaking with naval tradition and referring to their staff by given names.
  2. Medical Branch officers had their rank prefixed by "Surgeon"
  3. Legal status described in HHA3.1: MMH, not referred in JIR1
  4. introduced in HH9
  5. according to David Weber's tech bible
  6. in real world Royal Navy rating varies depending on job, eg. Boatswains Mate, Builder, etc.
  7. Aboard a starship, the title was Major (honorary), when the ship's CO held the rank of Captain, to avoid confusion about who was meant when someone spoke of "the Captain".
  8. At HH6 a fake Rear Admiral appeared. Rank of Commodore mentioned at HH0, but not listed at SITS, Ship Book 2.
