An Intelligence officer is a title given to an officer aboard a starship or space station who is responsible for intelligence matters. The officer typically keeps in contact with a central organization, such as Starfleet Intelligence, for the latest information.

Aboard Deep Space 9, Lieutenant Commander Worf held the position upon accepting assignment there. Doctor Julian Bashir briefly assumed the post in late-2373, while Worf was serving on the IKS Rotarran. It could only have been Bashir or Jadzia Dax, as only Starfleet officers with a class four security clearance could hold the position. He told Chief Miles O'Brien "All I can do is read these fascinating reports and analyses, and analyses of analyses and then keep it all to myself. Because no one else has a 'need to know'". (DS9: "The Way of the Warrior", "Soldiers of the Empire")

Worf was also the intelligence officer of the Rotarran during the Dominion War. (DS9: "You Are Cordially Invited")

Commander Kira Nerys' Starfleet alias, Rota, was a deputy intelligence officer. (DS9: "Tacking Into the Wind")

The Romulan Star Empire typically had intelligence officers aboard their vessels, and Toreth pointed out that they were "held responsible for their failures". (TNG: "Face of the Enemy")

Such officers most likely were members of the Tal Shiar.
