Xeno Captains Policy

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Is the rule against aliens being captain, other than skrell, due to specifically racial apartheid by NT or is it the result of systemic oppression instead? People argue either way but i have not found a clear answer. Sometimes when my xenos became acting cap i had people say it was actually against regs.

From what I believe, it seems to be more due to systemic oppression, even if we let aliens be most of the head of staff position. Also, it is not really against regulations, but I can imagine that humans or skrell should/would be prefered over other species to be acting captain, but that is up to the crew.

There's legislature and/or practices limiting the prospects of advancement for Unathi and Tajarans? It's easier to imagine for IPC's, Vaurca, and Dionae.

I don't think so, but nothing is forcing NanoTrasen to hire them to be captains or something. So, I believe it is more of an unofficial thing.

In my mind it was always more of unspoken rule ICly. Like NanoTrasen doesn't ever come out and say "we only hire Skrell and Humans to the highest levels of our company" but if you look at who they employ that's very obviously what they're doing. So no, it wouldn't be against regulations in that case to have a xeno acting Captain because there isn't an actual law in place. If that character tried to pursue a permanent Captain position, however, they'd probably find themselves dismissed or surreptitiously overlooked in favor of Humans and Skrell.

That's just how I'd reasoned through it, though.
