Private is a military rank, the equivalent of which is used by the service organizations of many civilizations. As a traditional infantry grade, private is the lowest enlisted rank in a fighting organization, below a corporal and above a recruit (which is only an actual rank in some cases). In comparison to naval ranking systems, this rank is approximately equivalent to the naval able-crewman rank.
Some rank systems use different grades of private, such as the junior "private recruit," and the more senior "private first class."
During the Q Civil War, which represented the Continuum by an illusion of the American Civil War, one of the Q guarding the tent where Q and Kathryn Janeway were held was referred to as a private by an incoming captain. (VOY: "The Q and the Grey")
