"Captain" is both a rank, being senior to a Commander and junior to Fleet Captain and Flag Officers. On the Starfleet Organisation Table (Adapted from the US Navy Pay Scale), Captain is designated as "O-6".


The Title of Captain is granted to any officer, regardless of rank, in command of a Starship.



RESPONSIBILITIES Edit

The most widely recognised duty of a Captain is command of a Starship, Starbase, or Shore-based unit.


Captains may also serve as staff officers for Admirals, and command some task groups.


For most diplomatic missions, a Captain is often assigned as the point man when a diplomat is not available.




INSIGNIA Edit

As described by the Starfleet Field Manual's protocols for uniforms and insignias, the insignia for a Captain shall be four (4) gold circular pips arranged in a line on the officer's right collar on all uniforms.


The insignia for Captain is directly descendant from ancient Naval insignia for Captain, which was most often depicted by four gold stripes on the officer's uniform sleve or shoulder board.
