A promotion was an honorable upgrade of a rank. The act of rank reduction was the demotion. In Starfleet, in the 24th century, the promotion ceremony involved pinning the pip of the new rank on the officer's collar by their commanding officer, or some equivalent thereof. (DS9: "The Adversary"; VOY: "Revulsion")
