A chaplain was a religious official who ministered to military personnel, their families, and civilians working for the military.

The word originally came from the Earth religion Christianity, but Starfleet used the term to refer to any religious official serving those functions.

Due to the diversity of religious beliefs, including frequent lack thereof, in Starfleet, they were not commonly seen, and most ships and installations did not have them. Those chaplains that did exist were almost invariably civilian contractors rather than officers. For example, a chaplain of the Bajoran religion was typically a prylar.
