The following is based on Fallout Tactics and some details might contradict canon.

Chevron is a tribal father of a small village of Peoria in 2197.

Background

Chevron has a lots of tatoos and seems to be a strong man. He allows the warrior and his team to venture into the fusion battery storehouse, which is considered to be a "place between life and death" by his people. If the warrior succeeded in returning to him and no harm to the village was done, he begins to laugh and reveals that he just used the squad to attract the curse of the "evil spirits" (in fact, cockroaches, and the turrets) on them. His proclamations were not absolutely untrue, though, and the warrior recieved a radioactive and poisonous disease from the facility. The squad only laughed at him for his naiveness of what happened in the facility and of what value were the batteries. However, to remain in a good relationship, he gives the warrior a fourth 'fushun bat', or fusion battery.

The Star Trek Expanded Universe Database is for fanon and related content. See Memory-Alpha.org for the canon Star Trek wiki.

Rank insignia are generally used by races and cultures that wear uniforms. In humanoids, rank can be displayed by stripes (such as braid) on the sleeves or epaulet, or in the form of pins (like pips and lozenges), embroidered insignia and patches. These of course differ between civilizations.

Lists of rank insignia

Types

Braid

Braid (or rank stripes) are bands of fabric or metallic material designed to denote rank on a uniform. Officers of Earth's United States Navy were known to wear rank stripes on sleeves and epaulets. That system was similar to insignia used in some eras of Starfleet history.

The Earth Starfleet of the 22nd century used rank stripes on dress uniforms for officers and on the standard jackets of flag officers. The mirror universe's Terran Starfleet used stripes on the standard uniform epaulets for officers, and both the epaulets and sleeves for flag officers.

In the 2250s, Starfleet used stripes of braid for both officers and noncommissioned officers, on the sleeves of standard uniforms and on the epaulets of dress uniforms. By the 2260s, only officers above ensign wore sleeve rank stripes, and only on standard uniforms. The 2260s dress uniforms denoted rank by braid around the collar, again only for officers. In the 2270s, all officers wore rank stripes, either on the sleeves or epaulet, depending on the uniform.

Chevron and rocker

Chevrons and rockers are stripe insignia that were used in many of Earth's land, air, and naval forces to denote enlisted rank.

Epaulette

Epaulettes are devices worn on the shoulder, quite frequently to denote rank or grade, or perhaps honor.

Lozenge

The lozenge is what is commonly referred to as a diamond. It is found in a deck of playing cards, and in the rank of a first sergeant.

Pip

Pips are the small metal pins worn to denote rank, particularly on 24th century Starfleet uniforms.

Star

Stars, in the vernacular of rank insignia, are insignia, often used to denote flag officers. The United States armed forces used groups of these insignia for generals and admirals. A similar approach was used by Starfleet, as flag officer epaulet insignia in the 2270s.

The Star Trek Encyclopedia refers to TNG era flag ranks with the term "star" even though the insignia used are pips in a frame. It lists one and two star admiral, three star admiral, four star admiral and five star admiral as the meanings of various rank insignia, but the one and five star versions are never seen onscreen.

The US Navy also used stars in conjunction with chevrons in their enlisted insignia, as opposed to the rockers used with chevrons in equivalent US armed forces.
