Since the foundation of Starfleet, there have been many officers who have captained starships and/or held the rank of captain.

Earth Starfleet[edit | edit source]

In the 22nd century, Earth Starfleet was the predecessor of the Federation Starfleet, and starship captains of this era performed many missions of exploration completely cut-off from easy support.

The following personnel held the rank of captain:

Federation Starfleet[edit | edit source]

Following the foundation of the United Federation of Planets and the formation of the Federation Starfleet in 2161, it became one of the most important powers for exploration and defense in the Alpha Quadrant, and is serviced by a large group of commanding officers.

Senior captains[edit | edit source]

Senior captains are Starfleet captains who have a great deal of field experience and are sometimes given flag ranks although they retain command of a starship. In the 23rd century, some officers with the rank of commodore still retained command of starships. On at least one occasion, an admiral was an active commander of a starship.

Captains[edit | edit source]

The rank of captain is the most common rank held by a commanding officer of a starship, however officers with this rank often serve at starbases or command divisions of support personnel (such as JAG officers or members of the Starfleet Corps of Engineers).

Junior captains[edit | edit source]

According to the ancient rules of naval parlance, a person with any rank may be referred to as a captain if they are assigned as the sole commanding officer of a vessel. Captains may also be awarded provisional ranks to be accorded the title of captain.
