It has been an eventful week in Pawfleet with the introduction of the USS Riker and the transfers of Captain Kona, Lieutenant Commander Tabbywan and Lieutenant Heisenberg to the Riker as it’s Captain, First Officer and Second Officer. More transfers will be made in the near future, but in the meantime, lets update the Chain of Command for the USS Crusher.

Important Reminder: Even when two officers/crewmembers/cadets hold the same rank, there is still a hierarchy based on who was promoted first.
The only time two people would hold the same rank is if they enroll in the academy, enlisted, or were promoted on the same day, UNLESS one officer is a Pawfleet Academy graduate and another holds a Field Commission, at which point the Academy graduate automatically has seniority. (Example: Lieutenants Gretchen and Simba were promoted on the same day and therefore hold an identical place in the chain of command.)
There is one exception to the seniority of rank rule: Command Officers always outrank Senior Officers and Senior Officers always outrank Junior Officers, regardless of service and promotion time.
