  Petty Officer Second Class - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Petty Officers serve a dual role as both technical experts and as leaders.
The term petty officer is, then, only used in abstract, the general sense, when referring to a group of petty officers of different ratings, or when the petty officer's rating is unknown.
It is common practice to refer to the petty officer by this short hand in all but the most formal correspondence (such as printing and inscription on awards).

 Petty Officer Third Class - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Unlike the Seaman and lower ranks, advancement to Petty Officer Third Class is not automatic given time in service, but is also contingent on performance evaluations by their superiors and rate examinations (test of specialty knowledge).
Thus, a Petty Officer Third Class, who has the rating of Machinist's Mate would properly be called a Machinist's Mate Third Class.
The rating insignia for a Petty Officer Third Class is an eagle with spread wings above a cheveron.

Petty Officer Vedros was part of a detachment of VP-1 that was assigned to Tan Son Nhut Air Base near Saigon in the spring of 1966.
Not only was Petty Officer Vedros a pillar of strength and competence in the organization, but he was a dedicated sailor who could be relied upon to do whatever was required to get the job done, and to support the operating requirements of the squadron to the best of his ability.
Petty Officer Vedros' service to his country in Viet Nam was much like that of many other unsung heroes - American service men and women who provided the essential support and maintained the equipment relied upon by the front line forces.

 Starfleet ranks - Memory Alpha
The second most senior flag rank known to exist in Starfleet is a full admiral.
Officers at this rank typically have some command experience, and are occasionally appointed department heads on starships.
In the modern US armed forces, service members may begin their career as an officer at the rank of lieutenant or lieutenant commander if, due to the nature of their occupation, they were required to continue their education beyond the level of Bachelors degree prior to receiving their initial commission.

Mike was fortunate enough to be off-shift and asleep when the Borg began their take-over of Engineering, and was then able to survive corridor-to-corridor combat against the drones long enough to abandon ship with the rest of the crew.
After the invasion of Chin'toka, Mike was assigned to the USS Hornet, a Miranda-class starship which, unlike many of her class, managed to survive the war intact.
