For the tribal title of the same name, please see Chief (tribal).

Chief (or Jefe in the Spanish language) was a common designation for leading officers and enlisted people aboard Federation starships and installations. When used as a title referring to an officer it denoted positional authority, or department head status. In reference to an enlisted person, it referred directly to rank, specifically to the rank of chief petty officer or above.
