The rank of Commodore (O7) is the sixth most senior commissioned officer rank in the Imperial Navy and the first flag rank.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Each Squadron in the Imperial Navy will be commanded by at least a Commodore, although this may occasionally be a temporary rank for an officer of lesser substantive rank standing in while a new senior officer arrives, being "tried in office" and/or awaiting confirmation of promotion.

Permanent appointment to this rank attracts the title of Knight[1]. i.e. Should there not be any appropriate Noble candidate, the non-Noble will be granted a knighthood as part of the promotion process.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

This rank is an ancient one found in wet-navies before the advent space-going communities.
