why is it called Generals night out when the rest is Admirals night out?

Cripto made all the threads and he incorrectly thinks players are Admirals when they are actually Consul Generals.

they have units, in space, why do you think it is a navy? or ships? its just the words that old sci fi program's used but if anything the airforce would probably be the one in command of all space warfare until its own division was made.

Also Consul General is the highest rank in history, it's higher then president, higher then prime minister. it is completely illogical that the player would be a admiral because admirals do not deal with ANYTHING except the ships under there command but players resurch new techs run empires negotiate trade agreements hell even designee there own units.

The only rank that makes any sense for the player considering all this is Consul General.

Army ranks are used in Air Forces because they are attached to the ground. Planes have to land. Ships...don't?

What makes you think they would use either? Naval, air and ground forces might still have their roles in planetary defence, so maybe they would creat a whole seperate new army rank system.

Our US Army 4 star General says space falls under the control of the Air Force in the current system.
