    Do you mean what is the order of command? I'll leave that question for now but in answer to your second question:

    Red-command level
    Blue (or is it more of a teal color?)-medical and sciences
    Yellow-security and engineering.

    Hope that answers your question.

    I would say the chief engineer would be next in command. Scotty was in charge of the ship on TOS several times when Kirk and Spock were in a landing party. Beyond that, I couldn't really say.

    The chain of command on the Enterprise goes:

    Picard
    Riker
    Data
    Crusher
    Geordi
    Worf
    Troi

    There was a list of the chain of command in the episode Conundrum.

    Yes but in the 7th season episode Thine Own Self, Troi took the bridge officers test and past. Conundrum was in season 5 so that means that Troi is the same as Crusher because part of the reason Troi took the test was because Crusher took hers.

    You got it wrong, in 'Conundrum' it's
    Picard
    Ricker
    Data
    Crusher
    TROI
    Geordi
    Worf

    Worf is just a Lt. while Deanna is Lt. Com., always it's the highest ranking officer that's in charge (there are exceptions of course, in one of the episodes of the 1st series, can't remember which one, Geordi is acting captain while he still is just a second Lt. That causes some friction with the chief engineer that is higher ranking and tries to take charge).

    Troi and Guinan are counselors that both work with the Captain on certain missions and since they are also in charge of morale, They wear different colors on diplomatic missions. but I do not think that the pinkish color that Troi usually wears means anything.

    Guinan wasn't even a counseler. And really a part time one. She wasn't even in most episodes except for certain seasons

    Guinen was one of the El-Aurians rescued by the Enterprise-B at the beginning of the Star Trek: Generations movie. On the Enterprise-D, she is just the bartender of Ten-Forward. However, she does give a lot of advice to the crew.

    Rank isn't everything, position matters too. Crusher and Troi after the test are full commanders but Data is still third-in-command as a Lt. Cmdr. And someone already mentioned Geordi being in-charge despite being lower rank, that was before he was Chief Engineer when he as 'red shirt' bridge crew. I think generally speaking tested Commanders that are bridge crew come first followed by command-level officers that are department heads or other specialists such as Crusher, Troi and probably La Forge (guessing he's earned some credentials from being former bridge crew, but lower than Chrusher and Troi in rank).

    Picard - Captain - Bridge/Command
    Riker - Commander - Bridge/Command
    Data - Lt. Commander - Bridge/Ops
    Crusher - Commander - Medical
    Troi - Commander(after test) - Counseling
    Geordi - Lt. Commander - Engineering
    Worf - Lieutenant - Security & Bridge/Tactical

    Although Guinan is an important person on board, she is not a member of Starfleet. She is one of the many civilians on board the Enterprise.

    Also, Trio's pinkish-coloured suit is not part of the uniform. Remember Chain of Command? The captain who took over told Troi to change into proper Starfleet uniform.

    That was a good move, I never liked that pink thing. I thought she looked so much better in a regular uniform... made her look less hip-y lol

    You know, why was she able to dress out of uniform? She wasn't more important than anyone else, I mean I know that that Worf was able to wear the sash, but they wouldn't let Rowe(sp) wear her ear ring until she proved herself. They still weren't out of uniform, but Troi wore almost anything she wanted.

    One of the main lame arguments I've heard from Troi-catsuit supporters was that her being the ship's psychologist, so to speak, should allow her to wear outfits that put the patient at ease. Which still didn't explain why she would wear something that would readily arouse the male members of the crew, wouldn't that make her job more difficult? She was the forerunner of T'Pol in that regard. Way I always saw it, was that she should've been in an office more often, dressed as a competent professional, and not in the capacity of bridge dressing.

    For the longest time, I thought that she was a civilian who just happened to work on a military vessal, but then they put her in uniform and there went that theory.

    Man Of The People (episode #129):

    In this episode there is a character named Ensign Janeway. Is this the same character who becomes Captain of Voyager in Star Trek: Voyager?
    Probably a stupid question, but it seemed quite a coincidence. Don't know how common a name like Janeway would be in the 24th century.
