- This article deals with the rank used in the MACOs and Marines. For a similarly named Starfleet rank, see lieutenant.
First lieutenant is an officer rank used by the MACOs and Federation Marines, superior to second lieutenant and subordinate to captain. A lieutenant commands a platoon (about 30 troops).
- MACO lieutenants did not appear in Star Trek: Enterprise to avoid audience confusion over rank names.
The rank is equivalent to the Starfleet rank of lieutenant junior grade, and senior lieutenant in the Federation Starfighter Corps.
The term comes from the armies and marines of Earth. The United States Army abbreviation was 1LT; the Marine Corps used 1stLt.
