Starfleet Ranks (Late 23rd Century)
In the late 23rd Century, Starfleet began making radical changes to its uniform and insignia from those utilised earlier in the period. The uniforms became much more detailed and statesman-like, with a distinct difference between enlisted rates and commissioned officers, with only a marginal difference between officers and flag officers. The sleeve-based ranks were gone, and instead the rank insignia consisted of a number of detailed pips on a coloured strap over the right shoulder, the strap colour denoting the wearer's division assignment. The enlisted uniforms wore their rank pips - now much more defined than previous decades - on the lower right sleeve.
With the exception of some minor cosmetic changes to officer uniforms, including the introduction of a standard communicator pin around 2344, the uniforms and insignia of the late 23rd century would remain unchanged until approximately the year 2355.
