Vice Admiral is a naval rank equivalent to Lieutenant General in the Starfleet Marine Corps. A Vice Admiral is typically senior to a Rear Admiral and junior to an Admiral. The insignia consists of three full gold pips on a rectangular plate.
Vice Admirals are flag officers with a specific mandate, such as a large area of space or a sub-section of a division, such as one of the departments internal to the many fleets within Starfleet. They may also command Task Forces.
