Fleet captain is a rank of officer in naval services and space forces, most notably Federation Starfleet and the Star Navy of the Romulan Star Empire. Fleet captain is an honorary rank, a grade higher than a captain and a grade below a flag officer in most rank structures, although some organizations will refer to a captain as a fleet captain in title only, to show the said captain's seniority over other captains. In the 2250s, Garth of Izar was made a fleet captain, and Christopher Pike was promoted to fleet captain in 2264.

Fleet captain is a post that may be held by senior captains in Federation Starfleet. A fleet captain retains the rank of captain, but has responsibilities that cover more than one ship. The term was used in the 23rd century but was rare by the end of the century and no longer used in the 24th. (TOS: "The Menagerie, Part I", "The Menagerie, Part II", "Whom Gods Destroy")

A fleet captain is usually addressed by as "captain" but may be addressed as "fleet captain".

History

The term may come from the navies of Earth, where a "flag captain" or "fleet captain" or "captain of fleet" would be the head of staff of an admiral commanding a fleet.

In the 22nd century starships were rare, so without fleets there was little call for fleet captains.

In the early-to-mid 23rd century, fleet captains like Garth of Izar were important in co-ordinating fleets in battle. (TOS: "Whom Gods Destroy")

Christopher Pike was promoted to fleet captain and was travelling in that capacity in a small fleet including the USS Mumbai, USS Darwin, and USS Nagoya. (TOSS # 16: "Cocktails")

By the 24th century the post seemed to fall from favor. Jean-Luc Picard commanded a fleet during the Klingon Civil War and Benjamin Sisko fleets of dozens of ships during the Dominion War without the term "fleet captain" being mentioned. (TOS: "Redemption II"; DS9: "Favour the Bold", "Sacrifice of Angels", et al.)

Leeroy Jenkins was among the few people in Starfleet referred to as a fleet captain. (RIS Bouteina: "Distress Call")
