|Starfleet ranks are based upon the 20th century United States Naval ranks, and ranks displayed here are taken from Robert Fletcher's costuming notes on Starfleet uniforms from Star Trek I - IV. These rank insignia (in a simpler form) were carried throughout the movies until the final scene on the Enterprise-B in Star Trek VII. Fleet Captain is a designation from the Star Trek Encyclopedia (Second edition).
Commissioned Officer ranks and standard duration at that rank:
Maquis rank insignia used on the USS Voyager:
Non-Commissioned Officer ranks:
Archivist's note: All ranks award to Maquis and Equinox crew are field ranks. While the captain can award a field rank or promotion, such as Jean-Luc Picard did with acting Ensign W. Crusher, such ranks are subject to review by Starfleet Command and may not stand once Voyager returns to the Alpha Quadrant.
Note: According to Startrek.com, B'Elanna Torres (and presumably the other Maquis, and Tom Paris) has a brevet rank. In the United States army, rank by brevet is conferred, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, for "gallant actions or meritorious services." A brevet rank gives no right of command in the particular corps to which the officer brevetted belongs, and can be exercised only by special assignment of the President, or on court martial, and detachments composed of different corps, with pay of the brevet rank when on such duty.
