The Original Series and The Motion Picture

Costumes in The Original Series were designed by William Ware Theiss, and indicate rank with sleeve stripes. This system is maintained in the Star Trek: The Motion Picture uniforms, which were designed by Bob Fletcher. There are fewer stripes than used by the US Navy because four stripes for Captain would have looked too militaristic.[2] William Ware Theiss (November 20, 1930 - December 15, 1992), also called Bill Theiss, was a costume designer for television and film. ...

In the original series, every member of Starfleet wears an assignment patch on their left breast, which varies from ship to ship.[5] Within this assignment patch is a symbol which represents the department which the officer is serving in (operations, science or command, represented by a spiral, a circle, and a star respectively). In Star Trek: The Motion Picture, the emblem used as the USS Enterprise assignment patch in the original series has been adopted as an emblem by the entire Starfleet.[6] (The reason for this has never been canonically established, although Gene Roddenberry's novelization of The Motion Picture states that it was in honor of the Enterprise, which was the only ship of its class to return back from its five year mission with crew and ship mostly intact. In The Motion Picture the department indicated by the background color of the circle on which the Starfleet arrowhead is set - white indicating command, red for engineering, orange for science, pale gold for operations, green for medical and gray for security.[2] Wikiquote has a collection of quotations related to: Gene Roddenberry Eugene Wesley Roddenberry (August 19, 1921 – October 24, 1991) was an American scriptwriter and producer. ...

O'Brien's DS9 insignia
Seasons 1-3 Season 4+

Miles O'Brien originally wears two gold pips and is referred to as a lieutenant. While wearing this insignia in "Family", he is referred to as a chief petty officer by Worf's stepfather; the TNG Companion regards this an error.[12] He continues to wear this insignia until the sixth season, when he starts wearing a hollow gold pip, which is identified by The Star Trek Encyclopedia as the "chief warrant officer" insignia. In the pilot episode of Deep Space Nine, "Emissary", he again wears the two-pip lieutenant insignia, and that episode's novelization refers to him as "ensign junior grade".[13] He again wears the one-pip device in the next episode, "Past Prologue".[14] From the fourth season on, he wears a new rank insignia, shown to the right. The fourth-season episode "Hippocratic Oath" identifies him as a "chief petty officer". Deep Space Nine's writers have explained that they disliked the term "petty officer" and thus originally avoided using it; O'Brien's insignia is intended to represent the second-highest petty officer rank.[15] Ronald D. Moore suggested that O'Brien, if promoted, would become a master chief petty officer.[16] Fleet Admiral is the highest commissioned Starfleet rank in the Star Trek fictional universe. ...

Qwika - Starfleet (1183 words)
Starfleet's early history was left obscure until the series Star Trek: Enterprise demonstrated that an Earth Starfleet had been operating prior to the founding of the Federation for at least 10 years, as Starfleet conducted the Warp 2 and 3 tests and several high-ranking officers referred to graduating from Starfleet Academy.
Starfleet's Academy is located in the Presidio of San Francisco, a park on the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula, with some buildings being further inland.
Starfleet ranks and insignia are similar to those used by the United States Navy.
Starfleet Information (1204 words)
In the Star Trek fictional universe, Starfleet is the military defense, research, diplomacy, and exploration force of the United Federation of Planets (UFP) with – as of the late 24th century – hundreds of starships and starbases at its disposal.
Starfleet has been shown to handle diplomatic, scientific, and military missions, although their main mandate seems to be one of peaceful exploration in the search of sentient life.
In the early years of Starfleet, as seen in Star Trek: Enterprise, Starfleet's mission is purely exploration and is not military in any sense except for weapons designed for defensive capabilities until the retrofitting of the Enterprise and the incorporation of MACOs after the Xindi attack on Earth.
