I have another creative bubble I want to send here. It's just out of curiosity. I know that in a military setting (sci-fi in this instance), the characters call each other by title and name. The aliens do it too (at least in some of the sci-fi shows I've seen.) But what if an alien refused? Does it really matter much if an alien doesn't want to call the commanding officer by his/her title? I just figured that it kinda does, as you're working for someone of authority who just happens to be a different race. By not calling the person by the title, you're showing disrespect.
