Imperial Navy Branch
|Imperial Navy Branches|
This is a rarefied portion of the Line branch (see below) the component of the Imperial Navy that runs the most senior political offices of the Imperial Navy including the Admiralty and Named and Numbered Fleets. While not technically a separate branch, it operates in a bubble of power not attainable by the majority of the Fleet. Entry to High Command is harder than entering into any actual branch.
The Pilot Branch is responsible for the provision of bridge crew for small-craft, such as shuttles and fighters. Imperial Marines Flight Officers (i.e. those Imperial Marines officers who have attended Flight School) may get seconded to Marine Flight Wings under Imperial Navy Pilot Branch management
Within the Engineering Branch as of the Imperial Navy only sits the Technical Services Branch. This divides the running of the Ship's Engineering systems from the Technical Maintenance of the ship's other sub-systems.
This branch provides Drill Sergeants, Instructors, Doctors, Cyberneticists, Administrators and Accountants. In short, those personnel without whom the navy would grind to a halt.
The Medical Branch staff operate as their own branch-within-a-branch.
The Support Branch operates the Imperial Navy's educational establishments including: -
- Naval Academy
- Naval Colleges
- Command Colleges
- Staff Colleges
- Engineering Schools
- Flight Schools
- Gunnery Schools
- Intelligence Schools
- Specialist Schools
- e.g. Tactics College on Macene
- Basic Training Establishments
- Naval Officer Training Corps units at major universities and colleges
The Support Branch includes the Naval Judge Advocate General's office.
