Lieutenant general was a military rank, the equivalent of which was used by the service organizations of many civilizations. As a traditional army flag officer grade, lieutenant general was the second most senior general rank of a fighting organization, traditionally between the grades of major general and general. In comparison to naval ranking systems, this rank was equivalent to the naval vice admiral rank.

This grade existed in some form in many cultures' rank arrangements, such as Earth's United States armed forces, and the militaries of the United Kingdom and Germany.

The US Army, Marine Corps and Air Force all signified lieutenant generals with the insignia of three five-pointed stars. Rex Denning was a lieutenant general in the US Army Air Corps, circa 1947. (DS9: "Little Green Men")
