    If I'm a CL1, what rank am I using in game? Chief, Ensign, nothing? I think I missed where that was laid out.

    Do you mean uniform pips?

    You're actually CL3 since you completed the Orientation Exam. Your in game rank doesn't really reflect to the forums as much, unless it's relating to a signature request as far as I know.

    You're a CL3 member and as you hold no volunteer position within the STO Divisions, your in-game rank would be Crewman, signifying that you're a member with access to the fleet stores etc.

    Your Forum rank is currently Petty Officer 3rd Class, which is what you'd use on a signature request. We match our fleet uniforms to the forum ranking structure, not the fleet ranking system.

    Well, if your question is relevant to the in-game rank pips, then the only NCO rank pip I've seen with Odyssey and TNG (fleet uniforms) is the Chief pip. For purpose of signature you could just leave your collar without a pip.

    For anything else, Petrarch answered spot on!

    This is how I understand it --

    In-game: If you play STO, your toon has a rank based on level.
    Commander, Fleet-Admiral, Warrior, Dahar Master, Subcommander, Fifth, Honored First, etc.
    CL: This determines your access to UFP resources.
    Forums, Team Speak rooms, or Discord rooms. Most members are CL-3.
    CL-4 and above are volunteer and staff positions.
    Fleet Rank: If you play STO, this determines your access to in-game Fleet resources. Most players are Crewmen.
    Forum Rank: This is what's under your UFP member name.
    Citizen, Petty Officer, Commander, Admiral, etc. If you play STO, this is the rank you use for signatures and official UFP functions, and you should have one uniform that carries this rank.

    There may be official terms for these, I used what I thought would be the easiest to understand.

    That's how I understand it now too. Although, the lack of rank insignia for petty officer in game I assume means I use nothing on the fleet uni, correct?

    Actually, I have a follow-up issue - I'm doing the DISCO variant and it only has 3 ranks for the uniform, Lt, Captain, and Admiral. I assume I go with Lt.? Also. they have 3 million different com badges, but, of course, none for just plain crew. Do I use the Cadet Senior badge, or the Ensign badge?

    For your character purposes, you can use whatever you want really.

    For UFP signature purposes I'd leave it empty. Since the signature rank is related to rank in UFP Community.

    FYI, you can become an Ensign by clearing the Command Academy Exams from the myUFP panel. Then you can use the Ensign pips in your signature!

    For your character purposes, you can use whatever you want really.

    For UFP signature purposes I'd leave it empty. Since the signature rank is related to rank in UFP Community.

    FYI, you can become an Ensign by clearing the Command Academy Exams from the myUFP panel. Then you can use the Ensign pips in your signature!
    Yeah, I'm asking for signature purposes. I don't have much choice on the uniform, there isn't a rankless version. I kinda hate not having any badge, but since they tied it to rank, I guess that's that. I'll consider that exam, thanks!

    You've actually raised a good point.

    I tried looking over at our signature guide for a solution but I don't think it's covered anywhere. I think this will be a question best answered by a member of our signature team or folks in FAB!
