Rank insignia are worn as stripes on the cuff of both sleeves for officers above the rank of ensign. (Star Trek: The Original Series)

As with a majority of Starfleet's uniforms, these insignia and the corresponding uniform designs were gradually introduced and worn over the years by Starfleet personnel in multiple realities. This includes the corresponding uniforms worn in the mirror universe by the Terran Starfleet. (See: alternate reality.)

  1. The gold (or 'greenish-gold') command division duty uniforms and dress variants appeared in most every canon Star Trek: TOS-era production beginning with "The Cage". Various green uniforms were seen in TOS season 1 and then only on Kirk in TOS season 2 before falling out of visible use.
  2. The red operations division duty uniforms and dress variants appeared in most every canon Star Trek: TOS-era production beginning with "The Corbomite Maneuver". Various beige uniforms were seen in TOS season 1 and TOS season 2 before falling out of visible use.

  4. 4.0 4.1 4.2 4.3 4.4 4.5 4.6 4.7 Sleeve stripes were used with this style beginning in "The Corbomite Maneuver" and continued throughout all canon Star Trek: TOS-era productions. Ensigns and other supernumerary crew (referred to in dialogue as "crewmen" and sometimes, oddly, "lieutenant") lacked sleeve insignia. Stripes seen on screen include lieutenant junior grade ("The Naked Time" only); lieutenant (sometimes LTs lacked stripes, however); lieutenant commander (sometimes LCDRs wore CMDR stripes, however); commander; captain; commodore and vice admiral ("The Trouble With Tribbles" only).

  6. This rear admiral illustration is based on RADM rank insignia worn in a successive uniform era of Star Trek: TMP. The insignia seen here was rendered in color by Kuro RPG, and has been featured in numerous other sources such as Spike's Star Trek Site.
  7. 7.0 7.1 The admiral and fleet admiral illustrations are speculation by fan fiction and fan reference sources, based on canon information on rank insignia that precede them. The insignia seen here were rendered in color by Kuro RPG, and have been featured in numerous other sources such as Spike's Star Trek Site.
