2nd Lieutenant is a rank above Ensign, 2nd Class and below Lieutenant in the GA Military. The rank of 2nd Lieutenant is the lowest of the so-called "commanding officer ranks" but one of this particular rank no longer serves as a service member with the crew-duties of the lower ranked "enlisted officers". The holders of this rank are usually in command of a larger entity of personnel serving under them than i.e. 2nd Class Ensign's do. 2nd Lieutenants can also serve as specialists of a certain field - such as medical personnel or security troop leaders. 2nd Lieutenants also quite often serve as members of a vessel's bridge crew, and are usually fully-trained navigations, communications, gunnery or engineering officers.
