A field officer was any commissioned officer that was not a commanding officer. In Starfleet, officers with the military rank of lieutenant commander and lower were considered field officers.

In 2373, Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax compared herself, a "simple field officer," to Captain Benjamin Sisko and the "brass hats" in Starfleet Command during her complaint about Starfleet's recent inaction in the Dominion War. (DS9: "Favor the Bold")

Bajoran Colonel Day Kannu was identified as a "field colonel" in the script for DS9: "The Siege".
