|So? The original Enterprise, and A had 3 captains at command. Carter and Cameron held the same rank. You can have the same rank with someone but, one of them may be the leader.|
Sorry, I didn't make myself clear.
I'm aware that even if people are of the same rank they can still be commanding officer/subordinate officer to each other, usually depending on seniority.
What I was trying to say, was that there are certain duties and responsibilities associated with different ranks. The higher up you get, the more command responsibility you're given. A commander would be responsible for a group of people under his/her command. When everybody has the rank of commander, there is no one left to command.
(Way to stay on topic! )
|So maybe there were problems with the writting and script in the Star Trek series then.|
That's what I was thinking.
