abstract = {In a previous paper, the second author established that, given finite fields $F < E$ and certain subgroups $C \leq E^\times$, there is a Galois connection between the intermediate field lattice $\{L \mid F \leq L \leq E\}$ and $C$'s subgroup lattice. Based on the Galois connection, the paper then calculated the irreducible, complex character degrees of the semi-direct product $C \rtimes {Gal} (E/F)$. However, the analysis when $|F|$ is a Mersenne prime is more complicated, so certain cases were omitted from that paper. The present exposition, which is a reworking of the previous article, provides a uniform analysis over all the families, including the previously undetermined ones. In the group $C\rtimes{\rm Gal(E/F)}$, we use the Galois connection to calculate stabilizers of linear characters, and these stabilizers determine the full character degree set. This is shown for each subgroup $C\leq E^\times$ which satisfies the condition that every prime dividing $|E^\times :C|$ divides $|F^\times|$.},
