Team Leaders have Epsilon-One ratings, and 'rank and file' team members have Epsilon-Two ratings.

As you can see, there are ratings in between these but I think you have the idea of what I do and how I do it.

I like the use of Alpha, beta, gama, delta as the titles for the grade/level security clearence.. it reminds me of the ComStar from battletech. gives me an idea on how i can use it. i'll post later when i get a chance to develop it some more!
Fuck being a hero. Do you know what you get for being a hero? Nothing! You get shot at. You get a little pat on the back, blah blah blah, attaboy! You get divorced... Your wife can't remember your last name, your kids don't want to talk to you... You get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me kid, nobody wants to be that guy. I do this because there is nobody else to do it right now. Believe me if there was somebody else to do it, I would let them do it. There's not, so I'm doing it.
