The chain of command was a ranking system used by militaries and other organised groups. It represented the line of authority down which orders are passed from one officer to another, and also the line down which passed command of a particular vessel or installation. Aboard a starship, or most starbases the chain of command began with the assigned commanding officer, usually an officer of the rank of captain, or in some cases commander. If the commanding officer, for any reason, was unavailable to command his or her post then those responsibilities passed down the "chain" to the first officer, then the second officer, and so on through the chain.

The USS Cavalry only uses the chain of command as an in character tool, as we prefer that out of character, we work together as a team and that nobody is above anybody else when it comes to offer suggestions, opinons about the future of the simulation. The only time the chain of command applies in an out of character sense is when matters of disipline are required.
