A Flag Officer-in-Command, or FOIC, is a commissioned officer who is senior enough to be entitled to fly a flag to represent where he/she exercises command.

Duties & FunctionsEdit

An FOIC is the Commanding Officer of a major unit or subdivision of Starfleet, which is composed of several single-commands. This may be a task force, a starbase, a fleet, or any other command assignment of equal magnitude. As such, an FOIC performs the same duties as a CO but in a much larger scale and over several individual Starfleet commands.


The term usually refers to the senior officers in Starfleet, specifically those who hold the rank of Rear Admiral (lower grade) and above.
