The ship's insignia is worn on the left breast of the tunic. The insignia of the USS Enterprise is a stylised sail, rendered in gold with a black outline. Centred in the anvil is the branch symbol: a star for Command, a planetary sphere for Sciences and a coiled lightning bolt for Operations.

Insignia


Officers' rank insignia is worn on the cuff of the uniform. The Captain of a vessel wears two solid gold rings, senior officers wear one gold ring, and junior officers and below wear none.

Landing parties are issued communicators, tricorders and, when conditions warrant, laser pistols or phaser rifles.

 

A variety of medical instruments are issued to doctors for the treatment of injuries and wounds on landing party missions.

For missions with hazardous atmosphere which do not require a spacesuit, a breathing mask will be issued.
