Enlisted and NCO Ranks

Here are the ranks for Enlisted and NCO for the various services that have them. Note that these don’t include any technical ranks (as the officers ranks don’t include warrant officers).  Maybe if I run a campaign where the characters are in active service I’ll get around  to adding them.

The new rule is that you roll for promotion even on terms of service where you didn’t succeed in getting a commission, and if you get promoted you go up in the enlisted ranks instead.  Once you get a commission (or get promoted past the top of the enlisted/NCO ranks) you become a Rank 1 officer in your service, skipping the rest of the enlisted ranks. You may refuse the commission if you don’t want to lose your progress (and the benefits on the Mustering Out rolls).
