Line 1: Line 1:
 +====== First Pilot or XO ======
 +The first pilot role is traditionally assigned to the executive officer of the ship, though this can vary. The thinking behind this practice is that a successful executive officer will next progress to captaincy of his own ship, and since the first pilot is responsible for controlling the ship in combat, an understanding of this role is essential to commanding a ship. Many navies consider the mathematics-heavy role of astrogator to be more senior than that of the pilot, but the Sindalian Empire and its successors felt that a captain should have recently been a pilot in order to fully understand how a ship behaves in combat. the first pilot is often referred to as the first lieutenant if he is the executive officer, and to many Drinaxians the terms are interchangeable.
