Re: Why no half ranks?

These ranks probably just didn't exist in the 22nd century.

Also, am I right in assuming that even in a crew of 80 with the officer to crewman ratio, should there have been more full lieutenants on board as I think all we see at least Reed as the only lieutenant on board then maybe a dozen ensigns where everyone else is a crewman?
There was Commander Kelby. He was probably promoted from a Liuteneant (Though we never saw him before "Affliction").
