Lieutenant is a rank of officer in many military organizations, naval services and space forces, most notably Earth Starfleet and its Federation Counterpart. The common title of address for a Lieutenant is "Lieutenant," when the generic "sir" is otherwise inappropriate. In the Federation Starfleet, the United Nations Space Command, and Homeworld Command the rank name is derived from English-speaking naval tradition.

Naval Lieutenants

A Lieutenant is a low-level line officer rank, in naval organizations a grade higher than a Lieutenant Junior Grade and a grade below Lieutenant Commander. The Lieutenant rank is roughly equivalent with the authority of a Infanty Captain of military forces. The Lieutenant grades of such military units are generally divided up as 2nd Lieutenant and 1st Lieutenant

A lieutenant in Starfleet may be assigned as a department head or senior staff member of a mid-to-large size command such as a capital ship or space station. Some examples include Security Chief Xonak of the USS Olympia, Chief Engineer Nathan DeSora of the USS Olympia or Chief Science Officer Jadzia Dax of Starbase Deep Space 9.

A lieutenant could also serve as the first officer of a smaller starship or the second officer or third officer of a mid-size vessel. First Officer Ezri Dax of the USS Defiant and Second Officer Tuvok of Voyager filled these roles, respectively.
