Re: Starfleeters?

You do realize that Gene Roddenberry was both a naval veteran and a police officer? It is no coincidence the show's terminology reflected aspects of both organizations.

No matter the rank, ALL are "police officers". Our chief of police was a sworn police officer, as were all of us in the department.

Naval officers are NOT the same as enlisted personnel. No self-respecting naval person would allow you to confuse them with the other ones. The only difference is that enlisted sailors will call you out more vehemently than officers.
