Gaining Military Rank requires the help of a Contact who can offer such a promotion. Military Rank for Star Traders is honorary and does not confer any actual power in the Faction's military structure. However, it comes with a myriad of benefits.
There are 21 possible Military Ranks to gain. Once you have reached Rank 12, you are a highly decorated Captain and scrutiny on your actions increases. Any transgression that causes a loss of Reputation with the Faction may automatically cause you to lose a Military Rank.
