|Higher Rank:||Vice Admiral|
|Known:||- Vorn Krace|
Rear Admiral is the first flag officer rank, above Commander and below Vice Admiral. They may command task forces, major starbases, shipyards, bases on major worlds, or other similar duties. In circumstances where a Rear Admiral is not commanding a station, shipyard or base, they will always be in command of a Battlestar, unless in unusual circumstances.
Rear Admirals have the same collar insignia as all other admirals, and are so denoted by the red, brown and white piping on their uniforms.
