Provisional ranksEdit

Shouldn't this info be on the provisional officer page? --From Andoria with Love 03:40, 21 Sep 2005 (UTC)

In the article it says:

"... Captain Kathryn Janeway awarded provisional ranks to several capable officers of a Maquis vessel in 2371..."

Surely "several" should be replaced by "all" as every Maquis seen on Voyager held a rank of some description with accompanying rank insignia.

Well, not all of them would seem to have been made "officers". I believe a number of them were made "crewmen", an enlisted rank. --OuroborosCobra talk 14:14, 27 October 2006 (UTC)

I thought that a field promotion was just that, a promotion in the field. Witness Wesley in TNG: "Ménage à Troi" and TNG: "Final Mission" and Riker in the TNG: "The Best of Both Worlds" storyline. Wesley was a provisional Ensign before that point, but very obviously not afterwards. --Jfromtheoak 03:47, June 8, 2010 (UTC)


Removed this speculation today about Riker wearing four pips in the BoBW episodes:

However, this may have been due to the fact that Hanson was in direct contact with Starfleet Command, which recognized Riker as captain.

As speculation, it doesn't belong. -- sulfur
