Even I was thinking about Animorphs-themed ranks, but my exams will be starting from 15th and I didn't have time to make up the ranks. It would be great if you could make up some Animorphs-themed ranks and post them here. :)

PS : Even Khistij said he would make up some ranks, but he didn't post anything. Perhaps he also is busy with studies.

That's great, but I was thinking more like Andalite ranks, like Aristh to begin with and ending with Commander or something...
Let everyone post their suggestions, then we'll have a poll to decide which system of ranks will be put up..

Andalite Culture and Government(From Wikipedia)
Andalite government, headed by the Electorate, functions on pillars of honor and respect, pride in culture as well as self. However, these noble characteristics are accompanied by others that seem surprisingly backwards in the eyes of species they consider evolutionarily inferior: arrogance, inflexibility, sexism, and an atrocious attitude towards the disabled, whom they label vecols and treat as outcasts. Although males and females have a higher societal equality in Andalite society than they did in Earth's past, gender roles are nevertheless strictly defined, with males strongly encouraged to enter the Andalite military, while the females remain in civilian, vocational roles, specializing themselves in arts and pure sciences. Andalite recreation includes a sport called driftball, as well as tail-fighting for sport.

Working down the chain of command from the Electorate are the Princes, the basic, personal leadership role. Every warrior must have a prince, and is expected to report only to that one Prince. A Prince will have one or more arisths, or cadets, under him. According to Aximili-Esgarrouth-Isthill, in Andalite culture, every individual is supposed to be subordinate to another, with the Electorate in turn being chosen by the people. Even military matters are controlled by the public, as warriors can present a "challenge" to any action a superior wishes to make, which would result in a trial where the people decide the outcome. However, during the Yeerk war, the Electorate became increasingly deaf and blind to the war, and independent Princes began to take direct control of the entire war effort. Prince Alloran-Semitur-Corass attempted to wipe out the entire Hork-Bajir race, and as a result eliminating the Yeerk's main troops, by using a quantum virus; the Andalite military had been ready to obliterate the human population through a 'Quarantine', that would have wiped out almost the entire human population, in order to starve the Yeerk empire of hosts.

The Andalite civilian government is rarely referred to, if it even exists; it is known that the military is run by the Andalite High Command, the members of whom are called "Great Leaders". A "Council" is also mentioned, but it is unclear if this is military or not.
From this and #18 The Decision, the Andalite ranks which I can get are :

Andalite Great Leader
Andalite Commander
Andalite Prince
Andalite Warrior
Andalite Tactical Officer
Andalite Aristh(Cadet)
Andalite Civilian

Please say if you like these or not.

Aaa.. What rank does Captain hold. I guessed it was something higher than Prince. Is it the same as commander? Or is it a rank at all?
