"Prior enlisted" (colloquially "mustang") was a term used to describe military officers who had served as enlisted personnel before being commissioned. They may have attained a field commission, or have attended an officer training program or service academy.

Mustangs tended to be older and more experienced than peers-in-grade who became officers via a service academy.

Mustangs by service Edit

Federation Starfleet Edit

Kanril Eleya held the grade of sergeant in the Bajoran Militia when Space Arm was shut down in 2401. Her CO Colonel Karryn Retta got her a transfer to Starfleet and entry to Officer Candidate School. (Bait and Switch: "From Bajor to the Black, Part I")

Jaleh Khoroushi, a lieutenant commander in 2410, had previously held the grade of chief petty officer as a quartermaster. (Bait and Switch: "Saith Daepahr hrrafv Llaiirevha, Part II")

Bajoran Militia Edit

By the early 25th century the Bajoran Militia required all officers to have served time as enlisted personnel. In an alternate timeline Kanril Eleya had attended officer school and had been commissioned, holding the rank of captain in 2409. (Bait and Switch: "The Road Not Taken")
