Looking through a couple of character lists from the Clone Wars Series we can see two "fighting" captains:
http://www.starwars.com/explore/ency...haracters/rex/
http://www.starwars.com/explore/ency...acters/argyus/

There are probably more and if my son was at home and not in school he could probably give me a complete bio on all of em

Rex is the most relevant one considering he is a Trooper (granted he is a clone version) and he is an active fighting soldier.

Captains are people who sit in the back, in the ships, boats, whatever, directing the course of battle.

If you want to be a captain, fine by me, go play Command and Conquer.

You are talking navy and they are direct line of combat if on a warship. Army and Marines Captain command Company sized units and are expected to be in the field with their units. Major can command a field company, but are typically Battalion level and are in the forward area not far from the front lines.

I thought Smuggler's had the name captain, which is why the trooper class didn't....?

I don't want to seem like I'm trolling, but it seems to me that people don't actually read other people's posts, just respond... It has been said a few times that you do get promoted to captain and that you do get the title of Captain. I have it. I got it, as was posted earlier, once I was done with the extraction mission on Tattooine.

Again, not meant to be a troll post, but if people would actually read a little more, kinda like opening ears and closing mouths...

If I get the rank in game I also want the damn title goes with it, period.

We get Captain.

Personally, I'd take "Commander" instead if it was possible. Or heck, just promote us to Major at the end of the Gauntlet.
