Every fleet needs to be headed up by a commander. You can recruit commanders from your military academy, in the military - commander menu. Fleets are limited in size by the skill of the commander. A high-level commander can commandeer multiple fleets in a single battle. Commanders die if there is no capital ship available to ferry them home from a battle.


The commander is responsible for target selection and assessment of how much damage you can inflict on an enemy ship. The personality of your commander influences their assessments. Cautious commanders tend to play it safe by allocating a lot of damage to enemy ships, while nonchalant commanders will assign less. The range of personalities go from most to least safe as follows:
Zealot - Tactician - Veteran - Independent - Loose Cannon


Commanders have four stats that increase when they level up:

  • Commanding
  • Perception
  • Tactics
  • Morale

Nobody knows what these do.
