Galaxy Commander is the highest officer rank within the Clan military structure, with its naval equivalent being a Star Admiral. They command a Galaxy, a grouping of 3-5 Clusters, and report directly to their Clan's Khan. As each Galaxy Commander controls a significant portion of their Clan's military strength, winning command of a Galaxy requires a warrior who is skilled both militarily and politically, with the eventual goal of attaining the Khanship itself.[1][2]
