Section 1: Starfleet Rank Structure
Article 1: Overview of Command Starfleet Command will consist of an Admiral, Vice Admiral, three Rear Admiral, and five Commodores. The Vice Admiral and Rear Admirals shall each head one of the four departments; Department of Finance, Department of Internal Affairs, Department of War and Defense, and Department of Foreign Affairs. There shall also be a Starfleet Council implemented when Starfleet matures in size.
Article 2: The Admiral The Admiral will be considered as the final authority in Starfleet Command. He or she will preside over the four departments equally and maintain order within Starfleet.
Article 3: The Vice Admiral The Vice Admiral will serve as the second-in-command beneath the Admiral. He or she will also serve as the Head of War and Defense. He or she will carry the duty of maintaining this department.
Article 4: The Rear Admirals The Rear Admirals will each serve as a head of one of the other departments. They will carry the duty of maintaining their own departments respectively.
Article 5: The Commodores The Commodores will serve as deputies to the Heads of the Departments. One Commodore will be appointed to each head of a department. However two shall be appointed to the Rear Admiral of Internal Affairs due to the vast number of responsibilities of that department.
Article 6: Non-Command Ranks The other ranks are (in order of highest to lowest) Captain, Commander, Lt. Commander, Lieutenant, Ensign, and Cadet. Captains are the highest rank that can be achieved without elected or appointed. Captains are the only non-command officers that can participate in classified discussions and government votes.
Article 7: Terms and Appointment Admirals and Vice Admirals will serve three month terms. After that a three day election will be held. Admirals and Vice Admirals may only serve up to two consecutive terms. However they may serve as many non-consecutive terms as they like, providing they can win the elections. Rear Admirals will be appointed by the elected Admiral. The heads of the departments may then appoint their own commodores, with the Admiral’s consent on their choice. To be considered for election or appointment the officer must be of rank Lieutenant. All officers of rank Ensign and above will be allowed to submit a name for consideration. The election will consist of a alliance majority vote. After a Command officer steps down he or she will resume a rank one level above his or her former rank.
Article 8: Impeachment and Dismissal In the event that an officer of rank Lt. Commander or above feels that a Command officer is abusing their power and/or not taking care of their responsibilities may call for an impeachment vote. This vote will consist of all command officers, other than accused, and all officers of rank Lt. Commander and above. This will be a two-thirds vote. The Admiral may dismiss any Rear Admiral or Commodore that he or she deems unable/unwilling to take care of his or her responsibilities. The Heads of the Departments may dismiss their own Commodore(s) if they have a reason. Following a successful impeachment of any Command officer the Admiral or Vice Admiral will assume the responsibilities of the impeached officer. After a Command officer is impeached or dismissed then he or she will resume a rank one level below his or her former rank.
Article 9: The Council A Starfleet Council will be implemented once the number of full-fledged officers reaches forty-five. The Council will begin as three members. It will then increase by two every thirty more members. The Council will have the ability to pass new laws without approval of the Admiral.

Article 2: Promotion Upon completion of the Academy exams, the Cadet will be given the rank of ensign. There are three different types of promotion.
