Book Cover[edit]

It can't be Polaski on the cover of First Strike because she's Navy. Why would Naval personnel wear Marine armor? She was wearing her flight suit. -- StAraqiel 17:09, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

No one said Polaski was the person on the cover. The editor said she was probobly the person on First Strike's cover. But maybe she put Marine armor on to defend herself from the Covenant during the attack on the Ascendant Justice.

I doubt it, marine armor gives barely any protectiona gainst plasma shots. Honor Guard Reborn
Anything is better than nothing. And remember, she's a Pelican pilot - she'll need something to stop punctures in her flightsuit, otherwise a vacuum environment would kill her. --CoH|Councillor]] SpecopsUserWiki:Specops306|306]] - Qur'a 'Morhek 10:59, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Rank[edit]

I'm sorry, but it's just sticking out at me. I think Eric Nylund is just horribly confused on how warrant offiers work. Either that, or the UNSC has a completely different way of handling warrant officers than any other military I'm aware of. Warrant officers are separately ranked - senior to enlisted personnel, but junior to regular officers. Yes, I did read the article he linked, but unless Nylund devolved back to the old British Empire usage (something I rather doubt, given the preponderance of how warrant officers are handled in modern militaries), he effectively gave Polaski two separate ranks. Personally, and granted, my read on this is likely complicated by my own military experience and having worked with several warrants for my entire career, I would suspect Polaski would be a Warrant Officer, as a PO2 would be very junior to see in a cockpit as an engineer or gunner, and I'll be honest, I've never even heard of an enlisted soldier who was a rated pilot. --Kant Lavar 02:30, May 13, 2010 (UTC)
