you know, while a non-commissioned officer is by definition enlisted, an enlisted man in not necessarily a non-commissioned officer. Wierd, huh? -- Captain Mike K. Barteltalk 02:02, 13 Jan 2006 (UTC)

I'm not sure why this should be considered "weird," a NonCom is a type of enlisted personnel. Just as a Flag Officer is a type of officer. Seems pretty strait forward to me. General Grant 02:46, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Basic Training Edit

Is it ever mentioned where basic training for enlisted personnel takes place? 02:56, May 13, 2014 (UTC)

I don't recall it being mentioned specifically; though in "Trials and Tribble-ations" Bashir made a reference to O'Brien attending Starfleet Academy; perhaps it takes place at the Academy(or Bashir was just confused). 31dot (talk) 03:04, May 13, 2014 (UTC)
