I know we're working up the skill systems and such, but we still have to deal with what ranks our PCs will start of with. I'll post my suggestions and we can talk about it here.
Either a Captain of a ship or leader of a small detachment of ships (5-10? 3-6? Something like that? Idk... xD).
A small detachment of men? Such as a regiment or something? 100 men? 200? Maybe some could chose to be an armor commander, so command a unit of tanks (5-10?).
Probably just start of as a Jedi Knight, who can then specialize as Guardian/Shadow/Consular.
Starts of as a Sith who can specialize into Inquisitor/Marauder/Assassin
Could start as a Senator for Federation, Moff for Empire, maybe owner of a small company for independent?
Forger for Mandalorians, Researcher for other factions. They, well, research stuff xD. Only small projects to begin with, with small funding, but as they progress and get noticed they can make bigger stuff.
These are just ideas I've come up with on the spot, subject obviously to debate.
