The Star Trek: The Next Generation Officer's Manual was a role-playing game supplement released by FASA in 1988. It was reportedly the focus of a licensing dispute which eventually resulted in FASA losing its license to release Star Trek material.

Rank insignia

The first section of the manual describes non-canon Starfleet rank insignia to include three admiral shoulder boards including a special rank known as "Branch Admiral". The manual also describes the "five pip" collar insignias for Commodore and Fleet Captain, as well as a starburst collar insignia for the rank of Midshipman and the hollow pip insignia for a rank called "Ensign Junior Grade".
