Was just curious where the following information was cited from: A ship's Gul will routinely take a cut of the profits from the cargo that his or her ship is transporting. Guls are often expected to entertain guests aboard their ships. As Cardassian society is generally non-sexist, both men and women can rise to the rank of Gul (and beyond). Thanks! - Adm.

  • I think this was adapted from Dukat/Kira's dialog at a couple different points in "Indiscretion". --Alan del Beccio 18:10, 24 Dec 2005 (UTC)
    • Just double-checking, thanks! - Adm. Enzo Aquarius 18:18, 24 Dec 2005 (UTC)
      • ACtually, I am not sure it applies to Guls, per se, since it was more in reference to freighter captain's. I don't think a typical warship commander deals too much in cargo profits. Some rewording is probably in order. --Alan del Beccio 18:23, 24 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Listing Edit

I think it's would be better if we list a person in the section of the highest rank he held, i.e Damar is listed in all three section (as Glinn, Gul and Legate), it's just stupid because it's obivious you need to be Glinn in order to be promoted to Gul and so on

While it is obvious, we are listing the people in the ranks they have been SEEN in. --OuroborosCobra talk 12:06, 18 September 2006 (UTC)
Right. Take a look at Jem'Hadar ranks, for example. Several of the individuals listed there were either promoted or demoted during the run of the series, all of which is relevant and of interest. Plus, how do we know for sure that one always has to rise up through the Cardassian ranks, in order? What if they have some sort of equivalent to ROTC, where someone starts, say at a Gul level? Or what if they have a system where money (or status, or both) can buy a rank? We just don't know... -- Renegade54 14:57, 18 September 2006 (UTC)
Actually, we can be pretty sure that money can buy rank in the Cardassian military (well, at least in the more corrupt pre-Dominion time). Quark once offered Glinn Boheeka "enough latinum to buy a promotion". Now, that could have been a figure of speech, but Boheeka's extreme interest might suggest otherwise. --OuroborosCobra talk 15:25, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

Dumek, Minok Edit

What episodes do guls Dumek and Minok come from?--UESPA 22:08, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

No idea. According to Memory Beta, Minok is just from a novel, so I am killing that one. Dumek, I'll slap an incite on, as neither MA nor MB have anything on him. --OuroborosCobra talk 22:55, 24 February 2008 (UTC)


Comparisons Edit

I've removed the comparisons to Starfleet or realworld ranks as there's no evidence to support them - We should just state the order in which they're ranked as they appear on the show. — Morder 21:13, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
