Pulling rank and questioning the leadership hierarchy proposed for the US Space Force, actor William Shatner expressed a bit of consternation to the new service branch over the plan to designate a commanding officer as a colonel and not a captain. Space Force has declined to respond so far, pending legislation that as it stands runs counter to a long maritime tradition, not to mention several decades of firmly ensconced franchise canon. Shatner hopes that the matter is at least up for debate and discussion, and some lawmakers are siding with him.
