Behind the scenes
- In real-world history, this rank was first used by the US Navy in 1862.
- For unknown reasons, in promotions for On Stranger Tides, Theodore Groves was referred to as "Lieutenant" rather than "Lieutenant Commander". This can be seen in the film's visual guide and junior novel, as well as on the description of a promotional image.
