Rank-Like Titles

Several titles are use that are not traditionally recognized as ranks, or are used in such a way to indicate that they are not ranks. Characters addressd and/or referenced by these titles have a separate rank.

Supreme Commander (see article)

Chief of Staff (sometimes addressed simply as "Chief") is an appointment to the most senior position in the staff of a general officer or command. Rolf Emerson has this appointment.

Flight Lieutenant (Dennis Brown) and Flight Sergeant (Kenneth Russell) are used in a way to imply that the Lieutenant or Sergeant in question is an aviator.

Officer is used as a generic form of address for a junior officer (Claudia Grant).
