Leadership beyond the rank of Captain is a rare and powerful thing in our group. It requires absolute dedication and loyalty to our organization, as well as a continuing desire to participate in the community at large, run an amazing ship, and expand our reach. It requires vision and diligence, and a fair amount of work.
# Mentorship of new Commanding Officers from your ship.
Promotions are available to the following Flag Officer ranks:
* Fleet Captain* Rear Admiral* Vice Admiral* Admiral
Depending on the situation, some officers choose to continue holding the rank of Captain while In Character, while maintaining their higher Out Of Character rank. In this way, an officer can continue to plausibly command a starship IC while holding a higher OOC rank.
To be eligible to serve on the EC, officers must have served as a Captain for at least a year, and have a broad understanding of the organization as a whole. This includes participation in more than one OOC activity, as well as leadership of one of our taskforces. In turn, leadership among other staff members through participation on the Captains Council is required.
