A question on the subreddit meade me discover this

00:14:56 {アスカ}    ま、目的優先。人命軽視は大佐のモットーだしね。
00:14:56 {Asuka} Well, the captain's motto is "prioritize the objective over human life".


The Japanese script says "colonel", the english translation "captain".

EDIT: Okay so 大佐 means both "colonel" and "captain", why pick one over the other?

"Captain" in the sense of "captain of a ship" may take precedence over actual rank as a convenient way of retaining the ambiguity, perhaps.

Can confirm. There is only one Captain of a ship
although there may be many people with the rank of Captain on a ship... :crazytwirl:

The movies function on their own terms. If people can't accept them on those terms, and keep expecting them to be NGE, then they probably should have realized a while ago that they weren't going to have a good time. ~ Words of wisdom courtesy of Reichu
