Starfleet Ranks

The current Starfleet Uniforms has been in use since the mid 2370's and it's durability and streamlined professional design has kept major changes from being made to the overall design over the years. The color of the collars and undershirts, as well as the trim across the torso and on the wrists, denotes the various divisions within the Starfleet structure.

Naval Officer Ranks

Perhaps the most recognizable of Starfleet insignia are the round 'pips' of the Naval Officers.

Provisional Naval Officer Ranks

As Commissioned Officer Ranks require confirmation by the appropriate level commanding officer or equivalent within the prerequisites and guidelines of the Uniform Code, there are times when an officer has distinguished themselves prior to meeting those requirements or circumstances do not allow for confirmation of commission to be received, and thus they are instead granted a Provisional Rank (Field Commission) until as such time as they do meet the requirements or the commission of that rank can be confirmed.

Warrant Officer Ranks

The gap between commissioned officers and non-commissioned officers is small, but noticeable. Whilst officers are 'generalists' in their respective fields, and enlisted personnel specialize to a small degree, there is a gap in the line-up for subject matter experts. These are your warrant officers.

Warrant Officers generally go by their departmental specific title, such as "Gunner" for tactical, "Master-at-Arms" for Security, "Engineer" for Engineering, "Quartermaster" for Navigation (Naval) or Stores (Marine), "Boatswain" for Operations, "Bombardier" for Artillery (Marine), and so on and so forth in that fashion.

Otherwise, the correct address for any Warrant Officer is "Warrant Officer" regardless of their title, with the exception of Chief Warrant Officer, which is "Chief Warrant Officer". Full title is only used in formal situations.

Enlisted Naval Ratings

Though less obvious and perhaps less recognized by those outside of Starfleet, these insignia are actually the most common in the service as enlisted personnel actually make up the majority of the fleet, serving in vital support and technical capacities.

Marine Enlisted Ratings

Like the general officers of the Marines, enlisted Marines are rated according to their own designations of equivalent Grades based on the traditions from Earth origin.

It should be noted that when an enlisted marine reaches the grades of E-8 and E-9, the top grades, that a marine has a choice between the 'service' grades and the 'command' grades.

First Sergeant and Sergeant Major are those who command the larger formations, such as Company's with First Sergeant's and Battalion's on up for Sergeant Major's. The 'command' grades have special identifying glyphs in the center of their stripes to denote their command status.

Master Sergeant's and Master Gunnery Sergeant's are the 'service' or 'technical' grades, holding the specialist roles within the corps. Usually held by those who haven't opted to command formations. These hold the standard line glyph in the center of their stripes.

Aerospace Corps

It was decided that in light of the growing differences between the Aerospace Corps and the naval branch, a new series of enlisted grades were introduced to help differentiate specialists in the aviation branch.

Civilian Corps

The Civilian Corps are civilians contracted by Starfleet to hold a position or advise to a certain field or fields on board military ships and installations. Normally they are the best in their given field and have had schooling and a few years of experience behind them before being accepted into the Civilian Corps. The grades are C1-C19 and have no rank pips. The shoulder patch is worn on the left shoulder aligned with the standard comm badge and the civilian patch identifies them as being with the Civilian Corps. These grades are not ranks but levels allowing for security clearance levels, leadership roles within the Starfleet structure and being able to lead military personnel.
