Rank structure

Officers

Commissioned Officers are distinguished from other officers by their commission, which is the formal written authority, issued in the name of the Federation President, that confers the rank and authority. Commissioned officers carry the "special trust and confidence" of the Federation President.

Warrant

The gap between commissioned officers and non-commissioned officers is small, but noticeable. Whilst officers are 'generalists' in their respective fields, and enlisted personnel specialize to a small degree, there is a gap in the line-up for subject matter experts. These are your warrant officers.

Warrant Officers generally go by their departmental specific title, such as "Gunner" for tactical, "Master-at-Arms" for Security, "Engineer" for Engineering, "Quartermaster" for Navigation (Naval) or Stores (Marine), "Boatswain" for Operations, "Bombardier" for Artillery (Marine), and so on and so forth in that fashion.

Otherwise, the correct address for any Warrant Officer is "Warrant Officer" regardless of their title, with the exception of Chief Warrant Officer, which is "Chief Warrant Officer". Full title is only used in formal situations.
