The Starfleet Enhanced Ranking System 2.5 was the third revision of the Starfleet ranking system devised by noted Starfleet Optimus prime fleet admiral Cid Highwind. It would later be revised to the Starfleet Enhanced Ranking System 3.0 in 2171 which would be used for centuries afterwards.
It should be noted that only one flag officer in the history of Starfleet has ever achieved the rank of Optimus prime fleet admiral, Cid Highwind. Following his sudden death in 2172, no other Starfleet officer held a high enough rank to dare promote another to Optimus prime fleet admiral.
In 2270, Captain Kirk briefly attempted to create his own ranking system, which would promote himself to the rank of Omega supreme fleet admiral, which many historians believed to be equal to Optimus prime fleet admiral, however this short lived fiasco was overturned by the Starfleet Council, for quote, "lack of credibility." Kirk decided to instead make that sort of rank that you can only get when you have been demoted all the way back farther than first year cadet and not get kicked out, so jim kirk broke some time honored sacred rules, killed some computers and made a whole lot of demonically posessed children cry so he could get demoted back to that cool sounding rank, but he accidentally saved the word (America) in a drunken stupor and got demoted only to first year cadet, they can the guys he has in his pocket on that great big junta of white guys re-promote him back to the boring ugly rank of captain with all its flim-flamy crappy honors.
