  • Supreme Commander was a title bestowed upon Vorian Atreides for the supreme command of the Army of the Jihad, sometime after the death of Iblis Ginjo. Since the title is not mentioned, before, it is possible the title was invented especially for him, due to his great longevity and experience on the War. While bearing this rank, Vor initiated The Great Purge which finally trapped the Thinking Machines on one world, Corrin. Eventually the title was reformed as Supreme Bashar. It is unknown if anyone succeeded him.

  • Supreme Commander is a title which was used within the Vedran Empire and its later descendant, the Systems Commonwealth. The title was given to the commander of the entire High Guard and all of the forces involved with it, and is known to have been given during pre-Commonwealth times; however, no definitive use of it has been found during or after the Vedran Empire's evolution into the Commonwealth. It is notable that the known holders of the title were married to an Empress. This, in most European forms of aristocracy, would probably make them some manner of Prince Consort.

  • This is an appointment of command, not a rank.
  • The rank Supreme Commander is one of the highest ranks used by the Covenant Navy. The rank is only known to be issued to the Sangheili. They command large fleets and armadas. Despite the high status of the title, a Supreme Commander is likely lower in rank than an Imperial Admiral. For most of the Covenant's history, this rank was held by the Sangheili race until the Great Schism, when the Jiralhanae assumed most of the Covenant's higher ranks.
  • The title of Supreme Commander has traditionally always designated the Galactic Imperium Officer executively in charge of all of the Navy and Army. In the Galactic Imperium, the one who held this rank was also second in command of the Imperium. This role was assumed by Patton during the first decade and a half of the Imperium's years. When Emperor Ramsay died at the end of the Shrike War, Patton took charge of the Imperium but kept the title of Supreme Commander. From then on, the Supreme Commander officially became the rank of the leader of the Galactic Imperium.

The title of Supreme Commander is appointed to a military officer by the Ministry, subject to the Chief of State's approval.
  • The Supreme Commander is chief lieutant of the Galactic Emperor, and chief officer and commander of all Imperial Forces. Darth Vader, current Supreme Commander, also holds the position of Dark Lord of the Sith.
  • The title of Supreme Commander is the highest rank accorded in the New Republic Military. The New Republic Military currently consists of three major branches, those being FleetOps, GroundOps, StarOps. However, a liason-type of Council position was required as part of the Ministry of Defense, so that general commands from the Chief of State (who acted as Commander-in-Chief) could be effectively distributed to the three military branch commanders. It is the Supreme Commander's responsibility to ensure that the Commander-in-Chief's primary objectives are actualized through the New Republic Military.

Its fought between generic forces, each commanded by a giant, singular robot commander that represents you on the battlefield. Your commander or Armoured Command Unit (ACU) is the seed that grows into an impressive military machine that covers nearly every niche of land, sea, air and strategic weaponry. Tanks, bots, planes, ships, subs, turrets, shields, nukes, and Godzillan superweapons - they're all there. Battles between opponents can easily take about an hour, and can easily involve hundreds, if not thousands of units, depending on how many players are involved.
  • The Chancellor of the Klingon Empire also bore the title of Klingon Supreme Commander. When Chancellor K'mpec requested that Jean-Luc Picard mediate the contenders for his replacement as Chancellor, and Picard respectfully declined, K'mpec told him that such a refusal to the dying request of the Klingon Supreme Commander would be an insult by the Federation to all Klingons.

(DS9: "Little Green Men")
  • The title of Supreme Commander was the highest rank accorded in the military of the Black Star Confederacy After the Confederate Civil War, military authority was concentrated in a new post of Supreme Commander. Officially, this post replaced the Minister of Defense, but with the office filled by the High Admiral of the Navy, and no civilian ministries to get in the way, it represented in practice a concentration of military authority in Fleet Command.

  • The Supreme Commander is actually the Hearing Aid's long-lost twin brother in a smaller icebox within a giant icebox, which is his suit. His "disguise" is bigger than all the other appliances, and the Supreme Commander uses it to rule Mars, which he once moved to. He is only Supreme Commander due to electing himself as such and being inside a giant refrigerator that is his assistant. He (secretly) despises human beings due to their abusive nature. He also states that the Wonder Luxe Appliances (his henchmen) were built just to fall apart, making them obsolete. However, a gentle touch from Robbie (the Little Master), causes him to turn inexplicably pink and smile at the child, as it made him remember something about humans in which they are not all bad, but then reverts to his original color and pushes Robbie aside. However, he secretly reforms after the election between him and Toaster for Supreme Commander, and reveals himself to be the Hearing Aid's long-lost twin brother. After being reunited with the Hearing Aid, the ex Supreme Commander travels back to Earth with Tinselina, Toaster and his companions, but not before deactivating the Missile which was set to destroy Earth when he was in charge.

  • Supreme Commander (SupCom) is a large scale RTS that plays out titanic battles on land, sea and air. Its fought between generic forces, each commanded by a giant, singular robot commander that represents you on the battlefield. Your commander or Armoured Command Unit (ACU) is the seed that grows into an impressive military machine that covers nearly every niche of land, sea, air and strategic weaponry. Tanks, bots, planes, ships, subs, turrets, shields, nukes, and Godzillan superweapons - they're all there. Battles between opponents can easily take about an hour, and can easily involve hundreds, if not thousands of units, depending on how many players are involved. There are two games and one expansion in the series so far. RTSC will fixate primarily on the standalone expansion, Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance, and treat that as the "definitive" version of the game. The sequel, Supreme Commander 2, while snappier looking, is far smaller in scope and more accessible to a wider gaming audience. In other words, SupCom2 got dumbed down, lost most of its epic flavour and grandeur, losing a lot of old SupCom and Total Annihilation players in the process. The first Supreme Commander was the long awaited "spiritual successor" to Total Annihilation, and came arguably close to being a perfect game sequel. Starting off from where Total Annihilation left off, Supreme Commmander pushed the basic premise further, updated the graphics, sound, units, and networking and presented the player with an almost infinitely configurable GUI that never seems to get in the way. The game can be serviced and maintained using Gas Power Games' GPG.net service. GPG.net applies patches, provides an online gaming environment, multiplayer replays and a ranking system. It's more than just an echo of the old Total Annihilation's Boneyards multiplayer service. Its quite obvious that the developers have not only reprised TA in all its glory, but they paid close attention to the extraordinary output of the fans over the years as well. Supreme Commander appears to be the distillation of every custom mod, unit pack, and home grown add-on built by the TA modding community over the last decade, with all the repetition and dead wood stripped out. What you get is a very polished - if not demanding game - for your PC that has at least five years of life built into it. You'll need a solid PC to get the most out of it, though. There's been a big trend in the last decade towards the hands on, micromanaging "twitch" style of the WarCraft RTS, or the more recent "Defence of the Ancients" game style where players focus entirely on a Hero and their character progression in a small team game. The whole game centres around these heroes, and a lot of the complexity comes about from insider knowledge of how each Hero plays differently to the rest. Starcraft, Warcraft and the DotA's of this world restrict your access to the game's GUI, limiting your perspective, imposing limits on the number of units you can control and relying on a lot of high speed, stimulus-response "gamer athletics" to prevail. Winners show off considerable mouse and keyboard skills and timing to pull off a win - whilst at the same time demonstrating some big picture strategising, usually at high speed. This combination of fine control and big picture strategy is why Starcraft deserves its legendary status in the gaming world, and why South Koreans have all but turned it into a national sport. However, Supreme Commander's a different kind of beast. Its more austere, less intimate, and more about crowd control. There aren't any charismatic units; your forces are made up of disposable and anonymous drones, built and lost in swarms. The only intricate magic spells you'll find here are On/Off switches. You can upgrade Mass Mines and factories, and there are some seriously expensive upgrades on your commander. But essentially all units are completely without upgrades or improvements. The small tank you build at the start of a six hour marathon game will still be exactly the same small tank at the end of it. Some games give you one tank with three magic upgrades: SupCom gives you three different tanks - small, medium and big, each produced from a small, medium and big factory respectively.

  • Supreme Commander is a real-time strategy video game that has been hailed as the Spiritual Successor to Total Annihilation, which is not surprising as they are both designed by Chris Taylor. Set in The Future, man has used quantum tunnels or portals that are opened from the fabric of space leading to a designated location that can be light-years away. Earth is unified into the Earth Empire and man starts to explore and colonize the stars with the development of this technology. Then it all goes sour. The first nail in the coffin of this golden age is the Cybrans, humans enhanced with cybernetic implants-the chief one being having their brain merged with an advanced AI computer in a process patented by Dr. Gustav Brackman. Unfortunately, the Earth Empire treats the Cybrans more like slaves then real people which is something the Cybrans and their father figure Brackman don't particularly like. So Brackman and a group of followers rebel, set up their own country - the Cybran Nation - and start waging a guerrilla war to liberate their fellow Cybrans. The next and probably biggest nail in the coffin of the Earth Empire is the formation of the Aeon Illuminate, that got founded when human colonists on one planet ran into alien intelligent life, the Seraphim. See, the Seraphim had a peaceful and advanced society, complete with a quasi-Buddhist philosophy they called The Way which they shared with the human colonists. Unfortunately, the local Imperial military commander overreacted, and caused the genocide of the Seraphim with a bioweapon. The Seraphim's human cohorts didn't like that too much, formed the Aeon Illuminate and pretty much told the rest of the galaxy to join or die. Then, the Earth Empire collapses and is reformed into the United Earth Federation. And then you have a thousand year long three sided war being waged by these factions. These are the events leading up to the first game. Then the expansion pack, Forged Alliance, comes out and we find out the Seraphim are actually Not Quite Dead. The colony that was destroyed was only a very small fraction of the entire Seraphim race. Naturally, they are pissed at what happened to their colony and proceed to attack humanity. This causes the Aeon Illuminate to break in two with one faction siding with the Seraphim and the other forming an alliance with the other two human factions to stop the Seraphim in their tracks. It was followed in 2010 by Supreme Commander 2.
  • The positional rank of Supreme Commander refers to the military officer who commands all the military forces of a nation or alliance. Similar to the position of Commander-in-Chief, the leader of all armed services of a nation.
