Re: Why was O'Brien not an officer?

The O'Brien rank issue has been discussed many times before, he clearly wore Lt. pips throughout most of his apperances on TNG.

In Trek sometimes position is more important than rank. So his position as Chief of Operations gave him authority despite being a NCO.
