Lieutenant Commander Bortus, our second officer.Captain Ed Mercer[1]
Second Officer is the highest Lieutenant Commander position and third-in-command of a starship, below only the First Officer and the Commanding Officer.

The ship's armory appears to be the responsibility of the Second Officer, at least in the case of Bortus aboard the USS Orville.[2][3]
