  1. I always like the look of the uniforms in that movie. The whole look of the designs, props, insignias, and the vary ship is what I like to see in sci-fi.

    I had to look into where that list of ranks came from and I found the post were it was originated (http://www.therpf.com/f24/forbidden-planet-uniforms-86661/#post1604251). Further posts seems to make corrections and additional notes about the ranks and titles.
