Brigadier Kerla at Camp Khitomer

Brigadier is a military officer's rank, the equivalent of which is used by the service organizations of many civilizations. As a traditional grade, brigadier (also known as brigadier general) is the most junior flag officer rank of a fighting organization, by definition it is the officer in charge of a brigade. In comparison to naval ranking systems, this rank is equivalent to the naval commodore (or rear admiral lower half) ranks.

This grade exists in some form in many other cultures' rank arrangements, such as the Klingon Defense Force. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

In the World War II-era German armed forces, the equivalent of a brigadier general, called Generalmajor, wore an insignia of gold shoulder knots. The SS equivalent of Oberführer wore insignia of doubled oak leaves on the uniform lapel. An officer of this rank was briefed by Vosk in an alternate timeline where Nazis invaded the USA. (ENT: "Storm Front")

The Generalmajor was played by actor Christopher Neame.
