In the 2270s, the role of security chief was combined with that of the chief tactical officer. These officers were also in charge of weapons, shields, and ship security. The chief tactical officer could be a separate position or be combined with that of helmsman or navigator. (Star Trek: The Motion Picture; Star Trek V: The Final Frontier; Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)
In the 24th century, with helm and navigation consolidated in the new flight controller position, the chief tactical officer fulfilled the role of security chief. (TNG: "Encounter at Farpoint") Aboard the USS Voyager, Lieutenant Commander Tuvok, as security chief, had thirteen department heads report to him every day on ship's protocol. (VOY: "Scientific Method")
