VOY provisional ranks Edit

The images need to be updated. The auctions a while back revealed that the edge and slashes on the pins are actually silver, while the background is still gold. --Kevin W.Talk to me 19:17, November 20, 2012 (UTC)

Chakotay's rank insignia

Speaking of these, I had a question: Does any other character aside from Chakotay use this provisional rank insignia (right)? I ask because, since it's been established that Chakotay is a full Commander (See: Talk:Chakotay#His_rank), we should be referring to that rank insignia as denoting Commander, not Lt. Commander, if he was indeed the only one seen wearing it.
Edit: Just realized the talk page of that image raised the same issue, way back in 2008! And looking over Voyager's personnel list and the linked talk page, I'm pretty sure no one else ever wore this insignia. Any objections to me changing the article to reflect this? With a note below explaining the situation, of course, to avoid another lengthy talk page discussion. - MK (t/c) 10:25, December 25, 2015 (UTC)
According to The Star Trek Encyclopedia 3rd Edition it is the rank of Lt. Commander Otto Vonbacon ❯❯❯ Talk 23:10, October 21, 2017 (UTC)

Even though it is unclear what level of admiral Cornwell is I have made the assumption of vice admiral but will update when things become more clear. OvBacon(Talk) 15:53, October 11, 2017 (UTC)
Isn't Tilly a 4th-year Cadet or a Cadet, 4th-year, rather than a "Cadet 1st class"? -- Compvox (talk) 16:39, October 11, 2017 (UTC)
As far as I know she has only referred to herself as "Cadet Tilly" without any indication of her grade. But in line with previous shows, think of Cadet First Class Nicholas Locarno from TNG, it would be most likely that she is 1st class given the 4 lines and this would also be in line with how most current military organizations rank their cadets.

Locarno, right. -- Compvox (talk) 07:38, October 16, 2017 (UTC)
