A communications officer bears responsibility for internal and external communications aboard a starship or starbase. This person is usually a specialist in this area.

In the 22nd century, Earth Starfleet communications officers sometimes were linguists as well. (ENT: "Broken Bow", et al)

By the 23rd century, the universal translator was more reliable, and the communications officer bore responsibility mainly for communications internally and externally. (TOS: "Where No Man Has Gone Before", et al)

In the 24th century, the communications officer position was no longer a separate position aboard the bridge. The tactical officer and/or operations manager would also fill this function. (TNG: "Encounter at Farpoint", et al)

Onboard the USS Prometheus in 2378, under the command of Logan MacLeod, the communications officer's duties were part of the first officer's bridge duties.

In the Hydran Royal Navy, the communications officer's duties were part of the records officer's bridge duties. (RIS Bouteina: "Hystelic Kingdom")
