Star Commander is an officer rank within the Clan military structure. A Star Commander is in charge of either a Star or a Nova. The Inner Sphere equivalent is Lieutenant.

Clan warriors usually require several years of success before promotion to Star Commander. Alternatively, a sibko cadet can test into the position by defeating two opponents during his/her Trial of Position.
