Master chief petty officer (MCPO) is an enlisted rank in Starfleet, above a senior chief petty officer. It is the highest enlisted rank in Starfleet.

Command division MCPO embroidery, circa 2260s.

In the 2260s, a Starfleet master chief would wear an embroidered uniform rank insignia of an enclosed chief's chevron insignia with three stripes beneath it, below the assignment patch on certain Starfleet uniforms. (ST roleplay module: Cadet's Orientation Sourcebook)

While the FASA RPG manual showed a variety of enlisted insignia, none were ever used in a canon or licensed TOS-era production or publication.

By the 2280s, a master chief wore an insignia pin in normal unform wear, a silver ring with an enlarged upper segment and a gold diamond within. A lower grade, MCPO second class, had a similar insignia, of the ring and diamond without the upper segment. (ST reference: Star Trek Encyclopedia)

Master Chief Petty Officer is the ninth enlisted rank of the UNSC Navy, and is a non-commissioned officer. It is equal in rank to Master Gunnery Sergeant and Sergeant Major in the UNSC Marine Corps. Master Chief Petty Officer ranks just above Senior Chief Petty Officer.

  1. This is the insignia for a UNSC Master Chief Petty Officer. However, in Halo 3, the insignia for Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy is shown to be the same as the insignia from the US (with the standard "crow" changed for that of the UNSC "crow"). It is inferred that this applies to all UNSC Navy enlisted rank insignias.

Master chief petty officer (MCPO) is an enlisted naval rate, a type of military rank used by the service organizations of different cultures. As a traditional naval grade, MCPO is the most senior grade of chief petty officer, and is almost the highest non-commissioned officer grade in organizations like Starfleet and the US Navy. In comparison to infantry ranking systems, this rate is approximately equivalent to the most senior sergeant grade, such as Sergeant-Major. Personnel of this grade can be addressed simply as chief (or more properly, "master chief"), and sometimes by their job title, such as "master chief specialist."

While nominally subordinate to all commissioned officers, master chiefs wield far more influence and authority than most junior officers and act as mentors and advisors to senior officers. Master chiefs have decades of practical experience and are an indispensable source of technical skill and leadership on Starfleet vessels.

When there are individual grades of chief petty officers, senior chief petty officer (SCPO) is subordinate to MCPO.

In 2286, when a probe projecting humpback whale signals threatened to destroy Earth, MCPO Janice Rand was one of the officers in Admiral Cartwright's command area.

In addition, there exist three other grades of master chief in Starfleet: Command Master Chief Petty Officer (CMCPO), Fleet Master Chief Petty Officer (FMCPO) and Master Chief Petty Officer of Starfleet (MCPOSF). The first is the senior enlisted man in a Starfleet command structure, the second is the highest enlisted man in a fleet and the last is the senior enlisted man in all of Starfleet.
