Note:
Flag Officers are split into two divisions according to seniority in grade. Senior Officers are "of the Green", or "Manticore" division; junior officers "of the Red", or "Gryphon division." Captain (SG) is also known as "Captain of the List". Lieutenants (JG) and Lt. Commanders are known socially as "Lieutenant" and "Commander", respectively. There is only one Captain on a ship, and that is the Commanding Officer, regardless of his or her rank. If another naval O-6 / O-7 grade visits aboard ship, they are given the courtesy rank of "Commodore." If they are assigned to the ship's company, e.g. the embarked LAC group, they may be addressed by rank and surname. Royal Manticoran Marine and Royal Manticoran Army Captains are given the courtesy rank of "Major." Billets such as sailing master, astrogator or communications officer are not ranks, but jobs and/or specialties assigned to members of the ship's company.

Note:

Enlisted personnel do not have ranks. Instead, the term is "rating". This is depicted in their insignia by the number of stripes and/or arcs displayed. Their specialty. i.e. "Gravitics Technician", is known as their "rate", and is depicted on their insignia by the device centered over their rating stripes. A chart of these devices can be seen on the "Ratings" page. E-1 to E-3 ratings are referred by their rates, i.e. "Electronics Tech First Wanderman." E-4 to E-6 Petty Officers are referred to as "mates", i.e. "Gunner's Mate Harkness."
