Guardians of the Stars
This is your ability to inspire loyalty and effectively direct others’ performance, particularly subordinates and more generally those inclined to defer to your authority. This is sometimes called Tactics or Charisma.
Use Command to motivate reluctant or flagging subordinates, rally wavering troops, or smarten up the household staff.
Create an Advantage
Command can create advantages reflecting the quality of inspired or highly motivated subordinates, companions, underlings, or staff.
Command is not typically used to attack, although in certain mass combat situations you can use it to lead troops against a defending force.

Your air of authority makes you difficult to faze. You can use Command in place of Will to defend or overcome in stressful situations where you can fall back on your formal position or the performance of your duties. For example, if you have taken charge of an airship while it is under attack, and the attackers try to intimidate you into striking your colors (attacking you to inflict mental stress) instead of defending with Will to keep your morale steady, you can defend with Command.
- Here Comes the Cavalry!
You can spend a fate point to have your troops rendezvous with you per retroactively transmitted orders, showing up in circumstances when they would otherwise be too far away to assist you.
