I'll just reiterate the point I was making initially - a Russian naval
third rank captain is about midway between Anglo naval captain and
Army captain in rank (~LCDR, but considered a bit more senior by the
Russians). This would be just about exactly the right seniority for
Ivan/Miles in Memory - serious enough rank that it matters, junior
enough that it doesn't matter too much.
