Starfleet ranks - c.2254 to 2265, 2266 to c.2273, and c.2273 to the later 2270s - Starfleet officer ranks are represented by Command division colors. The ranks indicated in the second column (the TOS era) are altered from cannon by adding a half-braid to an Ensign's sleeve, and processing the ranks accordingly. This is the version on these ranks used on this SIM.

In c.2368, Starfleet introduced a type of "casual fatigue" uniform, as a standard duty uniform. Though "phased out" by 2373, according to canon sources; on this SIM, we still used them as fatigues. This is born out by the fact the 2366-era uniforms were still in use in tandem with the fatigues we see on DS9 & Voyager until the 2373 design made it's debut in Star Trek: First Contact. This table takes a look at these two designs, which are both considered current for illustrating characters on this SIM.

The final set of ranks covered here represent the future. The first set was seen on several episodes of TNG and DS9, and Voyager. The best guess of the years this uniform was in service could be 2395-2405. The current time on this SIM is 2391-92. This means the 2373-era design will still be in use for another year or two. However, there are so few good shots of this uniform, it makes it virtually impossible to use the design on the SIM. We will continue to use the 2373-era uniform for the foreseeable future. This could be seen as semi-canonical, as the uniforms seen on Star Trek OnLine predate 2395 by 9 years. And there seem to be no future plans, by Paramount, to produce more Star Trek set in the TNG/DS9/Voyager time-line. Since the "Movie Era" ranks and uniforms were in use for 73 years (in universe), the 2373-design could still be in use by the late 2440s. The second set of ranks represent Starfleet ranks from 29th century. Based on the Voyager episode, Relativity. These ranks are used here, as the standard Starfleet ranks in that time-period.
