The Commanding General or Commanding Admiral, depending on their branch of service, was the commander-in-chief of the original Star League Defense Force and afterwards the Second Star League Defense Force. The commanding officer of the first SLDF was appointed by First Lord, with the approval of the Star League Council.[1]

In the second SLDF, the commanding officer was also appointed by the First Lord, with the Council of Lords only able to override an appointment by two-thirds majority.[2] The commanding officer had the authority to deploy up to ten regiments of troops, with larger deployments requiring the authorization of the Council.[3]

The Commanding General of both SLDFs wore four three-dimensional stars on their collar as rank insignia, while a Commanding Admiral wore four cuff stripes.
