The Tactical Officer was an officer stationed at the console that controlled a ship's weaponry and shields.

On Starfleet vessels, the tactical officers job was to maintain weapon and shield readiness along with executing firing solutions. These solutions could range from a low intensity phaser beam or to plot a torpedo firing pattern. Security chiefs frequently doubled as tactical officers, though the two roles were not required to be filled by the same person. (TNG: "Pen Pals", "Masks")

Aboard Federation starships in the mid-23rd century, these duties were handled, at least to a large degree, by the helm officer and sometimes by the navigator. (TOS: "The Corbomite Maneuver")

On a Klingon vessel, this crewmember was called the Weapons Officer. (citation needededit)
