Security Sergeant Lipton was knocked unconscious by Gary Seven at McKinley Rocket Base. (TOS: "Assignment: Earth")

According to the script from DS9: "Past Tense, Part I", Vin was "a Sergeant, with twenty years on the force..."

Military Edit

In the military, sergeant was the highest or a series of highest enlisted ranks used in a service organization. Sergeants ranked below commissioned officers and above corporals. Other grades of sergeant include first sergeant, staff sergeant, and master sergeant, among others.
