This is how the Civilian Ranks will work:
Diplomatic Corps The Diplomatic Corps will be divided into Consulates, Consulate-Generals and Embassies. The Embassy will be responsible for creating Diplomatic ties with the Fan Organization to which they are assigned. For example, there will be a TRMN Ambassador assigned to the Colonial Cylon Alliance. They will have one Consulate-General per Region of the Organization to which they are assigned and one Consulate per State as appropriate. Attachés are subject matter experts there to advise those with a C-15 or higher. Military Attachés should come from the respective Branches of Service and are the only Military personnel permitted to hold the Civilian Billets of Consular Attaché or Embassy Attaché, but must have passed the appropriate course in the Civilian Academy to do so.
In the case of an organization that is directly hostile toward TRMN, an Envoy, rather than an Ambassador may be sent and a full structure of Consulates may or may not be established.
The Foreign Minister reports to the First Lord of the Admiralty
Intelligence Corps The Intelligence Corps will be divided into Stations, Zones, Sectors and Regions. Zones, Sectors and Regions generally correspond to Consulates, Consulate –Generals and Embassies. A Station is a particular location where extra Intelligence is essential. Major cities would be a prime example of this, and as such, New York City would be a Station.
The Intelligence Service will be tasked with [REDACTED] in [REDACTED] by [REDACTED] and [REDACTED].
The Director of Intelligence reports to the First Lord of the Admiralty
Sphinxian Forestry Commission The Sphinxian Forestry Service (SFC) is primarily a Cadet Service Branch of the Royal Manticoran Navy for those who wish a more Civilian track for their Children. Children under the age of 13 will also be assigned to the SFC and will, at 13 have a choice to switch to a Midshipman path. It is attached to the Office of the Sixth Space Lord. The Cadet ranks are all reserved for children. The remainder of the ranks are reserved for the Instructors at the Academy and Fleet Level SFC representatives. The Commissioner is the most senior member of the SFC and is responsible for the planning and execution of the Cadet Program.
The Commissioner reports to the Sixth Space Lord on Academy related Cadet activities and the First Lord of the Admiralty for Organizational Cadet activities
Royal Manticoran Merchant Marines The Royal Manticoran Merchant Marines is the group most focused on Civilian Chapter (ships). There will be three Classes/Types of Civilian Chapters, Medium Merchantmen, Heavy Merchantmen and Passenger Liners. From a crew perspective these will equate to Destroyers, Light Cruisers and Heavy Cruisers respectively. The command crew (CO, XO and BOS) of each civilian ship must be Merchant Marines and must meet educational requirements as set forth by Saganami Island Academy
The individual Captains report up through the RMN Chain via their Fleet Commanders
Royal Manticoran Astro Control Services The Royal Manticoran Astro Control Services will be share responsibility for running space Stations with the Royal Manticoran Navy. This is being offered solely for those who wish to go a civilian route and still wear a Uniform.
The Admiral in charge of the Royal Manticoran Astro Control Services will report into the First Space Lord
