better change my rank to captain then lol,
I think the Wing Commander's rank should be at least Colonel if not a Commander for a few reasons
1) 1st the show seems to indicate (at least to me) that you go from a Viper squadron command to a position of a Battlestar XO or Commander
2)Apollo was still the CAG after being promoted to Major
3)RDM has seems to try to tie the BSG as close as possible to a CVN, on a CVN the CAG is a Captain just like the ship's commander. The difference is they had different career tracks, one chose to go become a ship handler (the carrier's CO) after a tour as a squadron skipper, the other (the CAG) chose to stay with the air wing.
lookout can you change the flights to red and blue their green and gold i think too it keeps to BS uni plus what battle star do you all want be based on ?
So far (and I could be incorrect) I don't think I've heard them refer to squdrons or flights by color, but I know they did in the original series. I don't think those are the names of the squadrons eitherway. I think they are just radio callsigns, so the squadrons still have thier nickname (example Black Knights) but are called by colors while inflight to more easily differentiate flights, or in case a squadron is broken up into multiple flights; the Brits do this with thier squadrons. So if you have the Black Knights, but have 1 flight in one place and two flight in another, and two flight from another squadron out there too, you make it easier by calling them Red, Gold and Green flights.
I hope that made sense.
