Chief was a common designation for leading officers and enlisted crewmembers aboard Federation starships and installations. When used to refer to an officer, chief denotes positional authority, or department head status. In reference to an enlisted crewmember, it referred directly to rank, specifically to the rank of chief petty officer and above[1][2].
