This line rank was used by the Imperial Navy. It ranked above Junior Commander, and below Senior Captain. Senior Commanders could hold a position of Captain (starship commanding officer) or Lieutenant (ship officer crew). The rank was the equivalent of Imperial Army and Starfighter Corps Major.
Behind the scenesEdit
It appears that Senior Commander denotes a substantive rank than than a title of primacy as in the novel Choices of One, Grondarle is explicitly described as "The first officer, Senior Commander Grondarle", the capitalization of Senior Commander denoting a substantive rank in comparison to the lower-case for "first officer", a title denoting a position of executive seniority.
