    The next in charge after the XO? That's the Zog.

    I don't know what it can shed on the topic of command structure and rank, but there is one point -- I don't remember which episode -- that Ivanova instructs the C&C staff to have Major Atumbe take over command of C&C while she goes elsewhere to deal with something. I imagine that he would have some position in the progression of the command structure, I don't know if it'd be 3rd or what though.

    Question about B5 military rankings...

    Obviously the military structure in the B5 universe has always been a tad hazy. So I will appeal to the opinions of the biggest and brightest B5 brainiacs...

    On an Earth Alliance ship, what do you call the third in command? And can you have an XO that is NOT the second in command? My research in real life military has left me a little confused about it because in some circumstances you can, some you can't. For example, I think in british navy there can be an XO who just is in charge of the paperwork...
