Yeah the Captain on the Alderaan quests acts like you're the boss as a Lieutenant lol

It wasn't an Ensign saluting me. No spoilers, but it was an NPC Ensign calling an NPC Sergeant 'Sir' during a later part of the Trooper quest.

The codex lists ranks as such:
Supreme Commander
General (Army), Admiral (Navy)
Colonel (Army), Commodore (Navy)
Major (Army), Group Captain (Navy)
Captain
Lieutenant
Ensign
Sergeant (Army), Petty Officer (Navy)
Corporal
Specialist
Private

You can find it under Organizations as Republic Military Ranks. So yeah, Ensign is above Sergeant in this case.'


Edit: Then I find out it's already been listed... Oops

I can tell you its all screwed up lol. The rank structure was created by a guy who knows a guy who saw a guy watch blackhawk down. Also when your in a special type of unit its relaxed to an extent, especially when its just your own guys. Wraith standing at parade rest all the time eats at me, and the way she acts... I'm still deciding if I can play a trooper because of how wacky it all is.

I like the armor though...

Yes, I just saw this yesterday. An NPC ensign was calling an NPC Sergeant "sir."

Does the trooper character gets above Leutenant rank?

I know in the air force, I have heard a commissioned officer refer to NCO's (mostly senior nco's) as sir, it's not an everyday thing but if the officer has enough respect for the NCO it's not too big of a stretch. Then again our cultures a lil weird compared to everyone elses, I've been referred to as sir by NCO's above me and visa versa

I gotta say, this Rank discrepancy is an abomination. I mean, an ensign calling a sargeant "Sir" is inexcusable even in a fantasy RPG that most likely was not designed and scripted by members of the actual real military. I might actually quit playing the game because I am so irked at the sloppy writing. I won't even be able to enjoy the game anymore.

Thanks alot, pedants.

The deadliest weapon in the world is a Trooper and his Blaster. It is your killer instinct which must be harnessed if you expect to survive in combat. Your blaster is only a tool. It is a hard heart that kills. If your killer instincts are not clean and strong, you will hesitate at the moment of truth. You will not kill. You will become dead Troopers. And then, you will be in a world of $*!+. Because Troopers are not allowed to die without permission! Do you maggots understand?

Thankfully, I'm not a military guy so this won't bother me when I level a Trooper. But I can understand it bothering people who were in the military.

What does bother me is seeing Troopers run around with the Captain title, like they're some kind of Smuggler or something! Who's ship did you steal to earn that title, huh?!
