    CE - Captain
    CMP - Captain
    XO - Major
    CO - Lt. Colonel
    This is better. I'd still argue the XO should be a Lt.Col and the CO be a full Colonel but we have three-ringers incharge of some pretty important shit in real life so that's not unrealistic.

    If you want Doctors to be Officers then Researchers should remain Civilian and report to the Corporate Liaison.

    Mess Sergeant should really be a Sergeant or renamed to Chef/Steward.

    Squad Leads should probably be Staff Sergeant again.

    CT's being PFC's is hilarious and I love it.

    MT's should probably be at least a Corporal.

    MPs should be given a rank buff to non-existent.

    Lt. Colonel as CO and Major as XO is how it is in real life in usmc batallion, and E-5 sergeants are squad leaders in real life but whoever is in charge of lore downgraded Almayer to company level. Also in aliens lore USS Sulaco is commanded by O-2 LT Gorman and in Colonial Marines USS Sephora is commanded by O-3 Captain Cruz makes no sense there too for multimilion dollar ships to be commanded by such low ranking officers but it is what it is. I do agree that Almayer should be batallion not company.

    USCM Technical Manual states USCM Starships are actually mostly commanded and controlled by artificial intelligence. Not like in halo, more "It's a very clever computer". I agree the CO being a Major is silly and I've even advocated against it but in the lore, a starship can just be given a compliment of Marines of any size and told "Go there and do this".

    If we're being specific, they fall under the purview of the United States Aerospace Force (USASF). I'd have to re-check my book.

    tl;dr: ARES is the real CO.

    There is one ship that had CO as Colonel and it was transporting batallion: https://avp.fandom.com/wiki/UAS_Endeavor

    But it had 730 marines unlike our 150 max Almayer.
