I was wondering what the typical level for a ship captain (assuming CCW Fleet officer OCC) in Phase World would be.

If you're talking about just the CAF it would depend on what kind of ship and not every ship captain would actually hold the rank of captain. If you use the incredibly abbreviated rank system in Fleets of the Three Galaxies I assumed the following.

Sub capital ships like destroyers and frigates could be commanded by someone of rank of Lieutenant Commander to Captain so I always assumed level 5 or above. Cruisers would probably be a Captain and at least 7th and probably 8th or above.

Capital ships like Battleships and Carriers should be captains or above and at least 10th level or higher.

The few Dreadnoughts they have are probably all commanded by Captain Generals and 12th level or higher.

Those are just my assumptions based on the canon ranks and ship types.

I use a completely different rank system and a have a much more diverse fleet but this is the equivalents.

This is what I created back in 96 or 97. A friend and player of mine was in the Navy at the time and he really helped me flesh out the two major navies. We started by trying to answer the question that you asked, level of experience of various posts, and I needed to know the size of the fleets.

Long story short there was a big battle during the war that saw the Wulfen join the CCW. The destruction in this system caused an apocalypse on the order of Chaos Earth making the system a nightmare of random rifts and monsters and mixed into that is the largest starship graveyard in the Three Galaxies. I needed an idea of how big the fleets were so I had to come up with some basic numbers. During the course of coming up with the numbers several of my players contributed new ship types.

I mainly used the actual US Navy and Marines for my set up with some addons because I thought they sounded cool.

I just copied this from my old word doc so sorry if it's hard to read.
