Admiral was a rare rank in the early days of Star Trek: The Original Series (TOS), in particular since the nature of the first season TOS plots did not have the crew of the starship Enterprise coming into frequent contact with senior officers of the Starfleet Admiralty. The first such instance was in the episode "The Menagerie" with the introduction of "Commodore Mendez". A full Admiral, however, was not seen on camera until the second season of Star Trek during the episode "Amok Time". The Admiral in question, Admiral Komack, was then only visible via long range communications on a viewscreen and at such an angle where sleeve insignia on his uniform were not visible. It is for this reason that, during the time frame of TOS, all insignia above the rank of Commodore remain unknown.

In all of TOS, a grand total of four Admirals appeared on camera, those being:

With the exception of a very brief shot in "The Trouble with Tribbles", it was not until Star Trek: The Motion Picture that an actual Admiral's insignia was seen clearly on camera, that being the insignia for Rear Admiral James T. Kirk. In the film, Kirk speaks of meeting with a more senior Admiral (a character named Fleet Admiral Nogura), but this person is never seen, thereby leaving speculation as to how a senior Admiral's insignia may appear.

In the next feature film, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Kirk is the only Admiral seen in the entire film. Kirk's actual rank in the film is also questionable, as he is addressed simply as "Admiral", however based on The Star Trek Encyclopedia Kirk may have been a Vice Admiral or perhaps even still a Rear Admiral[1]. It was not until later feature films that additional Admirals were seen on camera and the full scope of the 'movie rank pins' was established.

The first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation (TNG) was slow to introduce Admirals. With the exception of a cameo appearance by Leonard McCoy, in the pilot episode "Encounter at Farpoint", an Admiral was not seen in the TNG series until Q impersonated one in the episode "Hide and Q". It should be noted that Q's false Admiral uniform was never again seen in any subsequent Star Trek production. The title as it appeared in most episodes opening credits. ...

In the first season TNG episode "Too Short a Season", a 24th century Starfleet Admiral is at last seen on camera, in the person of Rear Admiral Mark Jameson. Jameson's appearance introduces viewers to an unusual form of insignia and uniform (with gold trim) that did not last past the show's first season. Too Short a Season is a first season episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, first broadcast February 8, 1988. ...


In the second season of TNG, as well as all subsequent productions, Admirals appear much more frequently with a simpler system of pip insignia worn within 'rank boxes' on both collars of revamped uniforms with gold trim. The later Star Trek series – Star Trek Deep Space Nine (DS9) and Star Trek: Voyager – used the same insignia as in TNG with little variance but with different uniforms.

When Star Trek: Enterprise debuted, the pilot episode "Broken Bow" established how 22nd century Admiral insignia appears thanks to the character of Vice Admiral Forrest. Later episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise established the complete system of Admiralty ranks in use during that time to appear as grey pips similar to the Admiral pips used in the 'later era' series such as TNG and DS9.
