Hey all, I just wanted to make this post as a reminder, since it may be something overlooked by people who never served in the military. The other day there was an incident (that I won't get into, the matter was resolved) involving a bridge officer and SEA. Admittedly it can be quite confusing, which inspired me to make this post. Since this is a heavy roleplay server involving military RP, it's incredibly important to make sure you understand your own rank and the ranks of those you're speaking to. All officer ranks (O-1 to O-10) are above all enlisted ranks (E-1 to E-9). While realistically O-1s are inexperienced and would be wise to listen to the experienced enlisted (such as an E-9), that does not mean that an E-9 outranks any officer, even if they are more experienced. As such, E-9s are still obligated to follow the orders of O-1s and treat them with respect, and are subject to the SCUJ and can be NJP'd for violating it! I've seen it happen! When dealing with Fleet matters always check the rank of the person you're talking to! Hope this was helpful and in the correct section of the forum!
