Interestingly, my current character has both Good Reputation (Imperial Navy) and Enemy (Imperial Navy), precisely because of this.
How would that even work out? I know that mechanically they just negate each other, but how would you represent that in-game? Wouldn't it be better to just have the two Talents dropped?
Well, you'd think, but from a roleplaying perspective, it actually works out well. Of course, we don't particularily roleplay our relations like that as such, but you have to remember that it's entirely possible that we'll eventually lose our ship, at which point I'll be stuck with only "Enemy" again.
From a roleplaying perspective - and this was decided before I even knew what kind of ship I was getting - my character is a highly decorated Navy Admiral that have gone AWOL and/or MIA, performing some less-than noble acts in doing so (which qualified him for his starting rank of Reaver, that netted him the aforementioned Enemy (Imperial Navy).
His entire origin actually had the potential to net him 104 insanity points on creation (killing him instantly), to boot. My GM (sadly) decided I was not allowed to roll, and said that I was starting with "the lowest insanity possible" - at 24 IP.
He still considers himself a Navy Admiral, but still have a lot of explaining to do regarding what happened to Battlegroup Vanity (the Battlegroup he lead and subsequently abandoned as they were being chewed up by chaos raiders and daemons in the Acheros Salient). So when I saw that we were starting with Good Reputation (Imperial Navy) - I wasn't directly involved in taking decisions regarding the ship, since I had already taken charge of the entire dynastic and trade warrant background - I just sorta rolled with it.
Makes perfect sense, really. Well-respected, highly decorated, but also functionally insane and wanted by navy command.
Right now we're on our way to Footfall in search of archeotech toasters after killing 400 civilians (and 2 criminals dressed as orks) on Port Wander. To be fair, though, that was mostly because the Missionary failed his Brook No Insult roll in a crowd of people and our (Untouchable and/or soulless) Seneschal threw a grenade into a china shop for no reason.
