Ranks are military structured scientific achievements. Through solving scientific quests you get promotions to the next higher rank.
Scientists are given military ranks based upon their skills and experience.
Ranks are subdivided into
As a scientist it is also possible to specialize into a specific discipline.
For extraordinary achievements badges and medal of honors can be obtained. o
|Recruit||Freshly recruited scientists are recruits. It represent the first obtainable rank.||Accept Path of Truth I.||—|
|Apprentice||Apprentice is the second enlisted rank. An apprentice rank is obtained if the scientist successfully completed her/his first quest and are therefore fully capable of obtaining, analyzing/understanding and representing information in an objective manner.||1 Quest||1|
|Private||Upon completion of the basic research training, a scientist becomes a Private and is further assigned to a specific unit of a research field. Privates wear a rank insignia consisting of a single chevron pointing down.||2 Quests||2|
|Corporal||Promotion to a Corporal traditionally confers a large jump in authority and responsibility. The Corporal rank normally corresponds to commanding a section in Denigma or a squad of recruited scientists.||3 Quests, 1 Section||3|
