Star Trek: The Next Generation AKICOLJ

bunn and I are making our way through SyFy HD's daily showing of ST:TNG (first time it's ever been broadcast in HD!). We're now late in the first series. A number of things have occurred to me, but the question I have for you is this:

Are there other senior Enterprise officers whom we never get to see? We see lots of:
Captain Picard
Commander Riker
Lt Commander Data
Doctor Crusher
An occasional chief engineer, who seems to change throughout the first series until Geordi gets the job
Lt Yar
Lt Worf
Lt Laforge

We do see other officers - but they're generally lieutenants or ensigns. Is there anyone else on board of say Lieutenant Commander rank? Would we see more senior officers on a 21st century sea-going warship with similar crew numbers?

I'm sure watching TNG in HD is worthwhile - the PAL transfers from 525-line NTSC broadcast by the BBC in the 1990s often suffered from overzealously glowing reds, ISTR.

Yeah, my memory of SD ST:TNG is of it looking worse than contemporary programmes looked.
