The SFMC follows a slightly different rank structure than their naval counterparts. Below is a guide to the ransk and rates of the SFMC, as well as a comparison to equivalent naval ransk and rates.
Both the Starfleet Navy and the Starfleet Marine Corps use the same insignia to represent their officer and enlisted grades; however, the Marines use the traditional names for their grades just as the navy does, with only one exception, noted below.
Officers of the Star Fleet Marine Corps
^- Since there can only be one ship's captain aboard Starfleet vessels, the traditional Terran Marine rank "Captain" has been replaced by the rank "Lieutenant-Major" to avoid the necessity of the courtesy rank of "Major" to such officers on modern naval vessels. Lieutenant-Major is still company grade, not field grade.
Warrant Officers of the Marine Corps
In ASR, all warrant officers have an enlisted background (with the occasional ranking of exchange personnel from foreign services as such). They are selected from among the most highly skilled petty officers in a variety of fields with an eye towards providing experienced officers to perform highly specialized tasks. Their service is generally limited to the area of their enlisted expertise.
While they are subordinate to commissioned officers, they very much rate 'sir' from enlisted personnel and are generally afforded a great deal of respect for their experience and valued for their role. Fairly rare, warrants compose less than 5% of the overall service.
