Lieutenant, Junior Grade is junior commissioned officer rank, senior to an Ensign but subordinate to a full Lieutenant. It has a ranking code of O-2 and is equivalent to a First Lieutenant in the Starfleet Marine Corps. The rank insignia consists of one full pip and one hollow pip.
Lieutenant JGs are most commonly billeted as Department Heads aboard a starship or starbase. Often, a Lieutenant may hold command of a team within a department - a security detail, or engineering team, for example - most commonly comprised of non-commissioned officers and enlisted personnel.
