First Officer Kelly Grayson.

First Officer was a commissioned officer position stationed aboard space-faring vessels in the Planetary Union and the Krill.[n 1]

Within the Planetary Union, First Officer was part of the Command section. The position was synonymous with the rank of Commander. As second-in-command of a ship, First Officer was above the Second Officer and below only the Captain or Admiral. An officer was eligible for promotion to First Officer after attaining the rank of Lieutenant Commander[1] and passing the Shipmaster Qualification Program.[2] The First Officer worked on the Bridge in the Commander's chair and in the First Officer's Office.

Among the Krill, First Officer ranked above Second Officer and below Captain.[3]

The equivalent position among the Kaylon was Secondary.
