Earth Two, 2266

First sergeant was a military rank, a traditional infantry or army enlisted grade held by a non-commissioned officer. In comparison to naval rate systems, this rank was equivalent to senior chief petty officer.

This was used by the United States of America in more than one branch of their armed forces, represented as a uniform insignia by a diamond-shaped "lozenge" insignia within the three sergeant chevrons – although the number of "rocker" insignia opposing may vary depending on the first sergeant's grade.

A US Marine Corps first sergeant was assigned to aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN-65), one of the troops involved in the hunt for intruding time traveler Pavel Chekov in 1986. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

The USMC first sergeant was played by Joseph Naradzay, an actual Marine.

On Earth Two, a boy wore a first sergeant pin on a military helmet. (TOS: "Miri")

This chart shows only general equivalencies based on the ranks used by many governments on Earth, as well as the rest of the galaxy.
