This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
As far as I know, rank insignia for cadets have only been seen in "The First Duty" (TNG) and briefly in the VOY episode "In the Flesh" (I know, that was really Species 8472, but they seemed to have done their homework pretty thoroughly otherwise) - Starfleet seems to have done away with them later on. I like them, though, and I've got requests for them, so here I give you: Starfleet cadet's rank insignia, for teens and young adults (and for adults, since the game didn't want to show them otherwise and I couldn't find away around it). Of course, they will only appear for young adults if you have University; if you don't, you'll only have them for teens (and for adults, as stated above).

Just as my other rank insignia, these can be worn together with other accessories and they will appear together with everyday and formal wear, and with outerwear if you have Seasons. As usual, they're supposed to be worn together with my body meshes, so they might look odd if you use them together with other meshes – for example, a mesh with a large collar might "swallow" them, while it might look as if they're floating in the air together with a mesh with no collar at all. Just so you know that this isn't an error; it's impossible to make rank insignia that look good with any and all body meshes, so selfish creature that I am, I've sure they look good together with my stuff.

A side note: When I was taking the screenshots, I noticed that the insignia are slightly reflective. I wish I could take credit for it, but I can't - it's a carry-over from the glasses I used as a base. It looks quite cool, though.
