Starbuck was a nickname in the rebooted series, where they recast the role with a woman. In the original it was his birth name.

Lol and Sgt. Schultz

Please add "thrace" as an alternative to Starbuck. Thinking about the rebooted show Starbuck is the call sign used by her fellow pilots she is never called that in formal connection with her rank which would be Lieutenant Thrace. It took me some valuable time to figure out that's what I needed to type in. And I don't think I recall anyone saying "LT. Starbuck" on the original either but I may well be mistaken, regardless doesn't hurt anything to make it an input option.

This may be nitpicking. but I feel like the name of the quiz shouldn't be military characters. Many of the characters on the list are not military at all. specifically the captains are mostly just the captains of ships who are not associated with any military. Hook, and sparrow are both pirates. So, perhaps you should mention something about a rank in the name

Yes, I was thinking that with Nemo. He might have been a captain on board the Nautilus, but when he was actually a soldier his title was Prince.

Colonel Sanders isn't a fictional character. Harlan Sanders, the founder of KFC, was a real man who lived from 1890 to 1980. He wasn't a colonel in the military, but was a "Kentucky colonel," which is the highest honor given by the governor of Kentucky.
