In the Star Army of Yamatai, Shôshô (少将) is a rear admiral. Shôshô are typically leaders of small to mid-size groups of starships. Shôshô is the rank above Taisa; the next higher rank is Chujo. For a full listing of ranks, see Star Army Ranks.

Promotions to Shôshô must be authorized by the Empress of Yamatai. This was explicitly stated by Ketsurui Yui in YE 38.

Soldiers must have at least 9 years in service to become a Shôshô.


Officers leaving Shôshô positions for reasons other than promotions, transfers, or reassignment to available positions must immediately retire from military service; in other words, admiralty ranks are tied to assignments and the Star Army does not keep admirals without assignments.
