Cardassian Pip Picker (Blank through Legate

Used in Template:Roster, but can also be used standalone.

Background

The Cardassian Union employs the use of four officer ranks:

  • Legate, a flag officer, equivalent to admiral or general
  • Gul, a senior line officer, equivalent to captain or commander
  • Glinn, a mid-level line officer, equivalent to lieutenant or lieutenant commander
  • Gil, a junior line officer, equivalent to ensign or lieutenant junior grade

Only legates display a specific rank insignia on their uniforms. The other ranks are simply written in Cardassian script on the officer's uniform; however, for easy identification on a roster, a system of 1 to 3 dots is used to identify gil through gul. The blank insignia is suitable for non-officers/general soldiers.

The pips below are from kuro-rpg.net, and have been renamed to conform with only those ranks seen onscreen or listed in official reference works (namely, the DS9 Technical Manual, which introduced the rank of gil).
