Staff and Ranks
Ranking information and a list of notable crew aboard the Sarreti. This list is very much subject to change.

• According to the Essential Guide to Warfare, All positions in the Imperial Navy under Captain, except Ensign, are referred to as Lieutenant
o Ensigns are referred to as midshipmen
o If the ship’s highest rank is Senior commander, then his position is referred to as Captain
o “Position” and “Line Rank” are two different things – see p120 of the Essential guide to warfare
o The Starfighter Department uses its own rank system and the Stormtrooper legion is part of the Army rather than navy



• Positions (using the Imperial Navy system)
o CO – Captain
o XO – Lieutenant

o Department Heads – Lieutenant
o Division Heads – Lieutenant

• Line Ranks (using the Imperial Navy system)
o CO – Senior Captain
o XO – Senior Commander
o Department Heads – Junior Commanders
o Division Heads – Senior Lieutenants

• Starfighter Line Ranks = Navy Line Ranks
o Colonel = Senior Captain
o Major = Senior Commander
o Commander = Junior Commander
o Captain or Flight Captain = Senior Lt.
o Lieutenant or Flight Lieutenant = Junior Lt.
o Officer or Flight Officer = Ensign

• Special Starfighter Pilot Positions
o Colonel = Group Captain
o Major = Wing Commander
o Commander = Squadron Leader


special thanks to Josh for this list

Staff and Ranks
So, where would an Imperial Knight fall in this rank structure?  Or would I be entirely separate from it?

Also, every rank below captain being referred to as lieutenant is EXTREMELY confusing.

Thank the movies for the confusion. I'll work on where the knights fall, the way I see it, they aren't Navy, so it would be whatever their equivalent rank in another branch, and how that corresponds to them on a Star Destroyer.
