Three pips? If I look very closely at the pic of Hilliard, I see 3 full pips. Instead 2 full ones and one hollow. But I could be mistaken. The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs).

I've wondered about this myself, i've never been able to tell, but I would like to find a better screencap. -- Captain Mike K. Barteltalk 14:13, 8 Sep 2005 (UTC)

I took the liberty to have a look at Spike's Star Trek page and the section on starfleet commanders. It has a pic of Hilliard and there are three full pips. Maybe someone should have a look to verify what I have seen there. The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs).


I've just been working on the article and noticed this old conversation. Having looked at various screenshots ([1], [2], [3], [4]) as well as dialog in the script and final episode, it appears he held the rank of Commander in the episode. However, his entry on states he was a Lieutenant Commander. Because of this I have added a background note to the article but kept his rank as Commander. --| TrekFan Open a channel 03:51, January 29, 2014 (UTC)
