Rather for Aurora Chat than C# Aurora forum.

Hi Waresky.  Nice to see you after all this time!  I'm afraid this post really is off topic for the C# forum and does belong in chat.  I'm going to go ahead and move it.  Don't be concerned though - Steve reads chat too IIRC!

Best,
John

These ranks are lame.  "Astronaut"?  Really?  That's the best they could come up with?

Honestly they should just stick with Naval ranks.  Ensigns and petty officers and such.

Supposdely yes
It's a great idea really, I'm sure the rest of the military likes the idea...

Um, why would they use naval ranks? Space forces would fall under the umbrella of the Air Force, not the Navy.

Wow those ranks are rubbish. . .  Starship/Starbase master sergant? What if he is working in ground control or moonbase or something?

Some of them are a little silly, but that's kind of a groundless criticism. Rank titles are not meant to be a comprehensive job description.

Besides, they're still better than some of the fictional ranks I see in space-navy sci-fi books. I'd rather call a junior rating 'Astronaut' than, say, 'Spaceman'. Now *that* would be rubbish.

The other branches will either hate it because its chairforce or love the opportunity. Most will fall into the former category.

They are indeed not a job description, but they should not imply a different job IMO.  I mean, it is silly if they are contradictory to what the person is doing.  And they may not be the worst imaginable but my point is, they are not better than the existing NAVY/Air-Force ranks.  So if they can't come up with something better, they should use those.
