Travis, what are the criteria for characters to be added? I ask because I'm reading "The Veil at Valcour" right now and I noticed that there are a bunch of sailors on the ship whose names are called out, so we know they're present. Should all of those sailors be added?

We would have to be able to distinguish who is who in the story. If they call out a name to a group of sailors, then we don't know which is which. I've skipped several listings in books where I wasn't sure what character they were talking about. (Mostly, this is to limit the number of one off characters who show up for 1 line of a book and never again...those can add up very fast)

Travis, are you able to add more options in the "Rank" drop down menu? I ask because currently Israel Daniel Dickenson is listed as a Klingon captain, and that clearly isn't correct. He's a captain in the Continental Navy (which I added as a group).

Yea, I can add more. The drop down doesn't really matter though. In the database it's just recorded as "Captain", so when you see it in the system, it's just happens to show the "klingon captain" instead of "Federation captain", even though that's the one I actually picked. All people actually see, and the system actually knows, is the word "captain"

Okay. What about adding "First Mate" as a rank, since that's what Henry Hardie is in "The Veil at Valcour."

I'll do some checking, but I'm nearly positive first mate wasn't a rank in either the continental nor early us navy. It was essentially a position Luke helmsman or xo.

When adding ships, you can't put USS Enterprise. That makes it show up in the U's, and if all federation ships are named like that, they would all show up in the Us.

I changed it to Enterprise (1799) and the display name on that issue put in USS Enterprise.
