Works for me, Demibear.

What I was able to find was that after the Kuvexian war, 8th fleet was merged into 3rd fleet. So 3rd fleet is still around.

Hrm. So it would seem. Anyone taking the third? If not... I do have an old NPC from my Task Force Lantern days laying around. Granted she was a Shosa at the time which was in YE 34 I do believe. But if'ya want to keep Shizuka as the Taisho no harm no foul.

I was just going to use Shizuka, I had no idea anyone would be interested in playing a Taisho. Does your NPC have 15+ years in service? It's funny, we have an abundance of Taishos but we're really skimpy in the middle officer ranks (like Taii to Shosho). Until the recent elimination of junis and the accelerated oficer program the lower officer ranks were not looking that populated either. The hope is that some of these characters eventually become captains.

Edit: Also, anyone who has a starship ops character who is a navigator, that occupation has a page now.

She was born during the GSA days and took part in Albini's take over. At least that was how she was written when I made her.

PEARL is a Taisho level organization?
Yes, it is. It also has much to do with Saya's story because PEARL recovered her. Generally, the Star Army does not demote Taisho, and she already was one.

Being a Taisho is linked to specific positions, if you are no longer in those positions, you are no longer a Taisho. The highest permanent rank is Taisa. I'll also add that PEARL doesn't seem like a Taisho level command given it's narrow focus.

Thanks for reinstating Shida. To players and GMs, I cannot express how important it is to come to me if you need me to do something with the Director of Intelligence. It seemed people were very into having a sitting playable director and now I'm looking around like, "What do you guys actually need?" Spies are fueled on secrets. If you don't tell me them directly, I'll find my own fuel.

Hanako as Director of Personnel seemed to ONLY be doing PEARL activities by necessity outside of the mass rank and posting messages Wes accomplished through her. I think it makes sense Taisho Hanako's primary job in an organization is being given to a Taisho.

At the end of the day, it was Hanako's decision to put Saya there, the appointment was actually roleplayed out. RP - Rising Lotus I'll go with whatever Wes said on this. I'm not someone who is out to collect rank and power so I don't mind, either way, I try to have my characters contribute to the Star Army according to their skills, etc.
