A non-commissioned officer (also known as NCO or noncom) was an enlisted member of Starfleet or another military or service organization who had not attended officer training, but functioned as a lower-ranking crewman with authority over other enlisted crewmen.

In Starfleet, anyone who was a petty officer (including specialists, yeomen, and technicians) was an NCO, as they were senior to the lower crewman rank. This included the more senior NCOs, such as chiefs.

In 2372, the Jem'Hadar first Goran'Agar correctly identified Chief Miles O'Brien as a noncom. DS9: "Hippocratic Oath".

The abbreviation NCO was used in the script of TNG: "Descent, Part II". [1]
