Spock, first officer of the USS Enterprise.

On ships, the first officer acts out the captain's orders and advises him or her. In Starfleet, this function is usually accompanied by the rank of commander or lieutenant commander. First officers may also be referred to as executive officers.

The first officer is nominally responsible for the smooth running and organization of a ship or starbase, and will often be head of his/her own Executive Department/Division, whose officers and crew - primarily with the yeoman designation - manage many of the day-to-day administrative tasks for the XO. (The Exec. Dept. would, for instance, provide the captain with a personal assistant).

Starwars

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

In many militaries, an executive officer (or simply X.O.) was the second-in-command of a single military unit and reported directly to the commanding officer (or C.O.). The X.O. was typically responsible for the management of day-to-day activities within the unit in order to free the commander to concentrate on either planning the unit's next move or issuing general orders as circumstances dictated. The X.O. would also take charge of the unit in the absence of the commander (either due to being on leave, incapacitated in some fashion, or killed in the line of duty, among other possibilities). The position was frequently the stepping-stone to a command position for the officer.

Some organizations used the term "Second-in-Command," First Mate," or "First Officer" to describe an X.O., including paramilitary and non-military entities such as civilian starships or pirate and/or smuggling organizations.
