Free Planets Alliance officers in Legend of the Galactic Heroes can be distinguished primarily by the rank insignia on the collars of their uniforms.  There are three major branches of the Alliance Armed forces: The Navy (Free Planets Space Fleet), the Marines (for example, the Rosen Ritter), and the Alliance Air Corps. Conjecture also suggests there is a Free Planets Alliance land Army.
