Listing Edit

I think it's would be better if we list a person in the section of the highest rank he held, i.e Damar is listed in all three section (as Glinn, Gul and Legate), it's just stupid because it's obivious you need to be Glinn in order to be promoted to Gul and so on. --Ingsoc 11:29, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

While it is obvious, we are listing the people in the ranks they have been SEEN in. --OuroborosCobra talk 12:06, 18 September 2006 (UTC)
Right. Take a look at Jem'Hadar ranks, for example. Several of the individuals listed there were either promoted or demoted during the run of the series, all of which is relevant and of interest. Plus, how do we know for sure that one always has to rise up through the Cardassian ranks, in order? What if they have some sort of equivalent to ROTC, where someone starts, say at a Gul level? Or what if they have a system where money (or status, or both) can buy a rank? We just don't know... -- Renegade54 14:57, 18 September 2006 (UTC)
Actually, we can be pretty sure that money can buy rank in the Cardassian military (well, at least in the more corrupt pre-Dominion time). Quark once offered Glinn Boheeka "enough latinum to buy a promotion". Now, that could have been a figure of speech, but Boheeka's extreme interest might suggest otherwise. --OuroborosCobra talk 15:25, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

Comparisons Edit

I've removed the comparisons to Starfleet or realworld ranks as there's no evidence to support them - We should just state the order in which they're ranked as they appear on the show. — Morder 21:13, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Split Edit

I see no reason why Gul, Glinn and Legate cannot be individual articles. --Alan del Beccio (talk) 17:40, August 24, 2017 (UTC)

Absolutely, Support. -- Capricorn (talk) 21:49, August 24, 2017 (UTC)
Second that. --LauraCC (talk) 20:44, September 5, 2017 (UTC)
