The Star Trek: The Next Generation Officer's Manual was a role-playing game supplement released by FASA in 1988. It was reportedly the focus of a licensing dispute which precipitated the end of FASA's license to release Star Trek material.


Rank insignia

The first section of the manual desribes non-canon Starfleet rank insignia to include three Admiral shoulder boards including a special rank known as "Branch Admiral". The manual also describes the "five pip" collar insignias for Commodore and Fleet Captain, as well as a starburst collar insignia for the rank of Midshipman.
