Hello Joe!

While anxiously awaiting the results of your search for an actress to play
Capt. Elizabeth Lochley, and after hearing that she would not be appearing
in every episode of S5, my question for you is this: Where will the new
captain be listed in the credits? Traditionally, the sequence has been (this
is from memory, so pardon any mistakes or accidental omissions):

The Starrings:

Bruce Boxleitner
Claudia Christian  <-- we know she's gone, so now only 3 in the Starrings?
Jerry Doyle
Mira Furlan

then the Also Starrings:

Richard Briggs
Bill Mumy
Jason Carter
Stephen Furst
Jeff Conaway
Patricia Tallman

and then the Ands:

Peter Jurasik
Andreas Katsulas

Where will the new captain appear in this hierarchy? Since she's a new
character, will she appear at the end of the Also Starrings, just before
Peter and Andreas? Does the SAG have rules regarding where actors have to be
listed in the credits?

Thanks for any info you can provide, and keep up the good ("Whaddaya mean,
'good'? Try excellent!") work!

The credit placement will have to be negotiated with the performer.
