Major is an officer rank used by the MACOs and Federation Marines, superior to captain and subordinate to lieutenant colonel and colonel.

This rank is also used in the Bajoran Militia and other armies. (DS9)

The Romulans also used the rank in their Ground Forces and Tal Shiar. They were both above the rank of captain while the RGF was below centurion and in the Tal Shiar it was below colonel. (The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon) Both organizations referred to majors as aendehs in Rihannsu. (RIS Bouteina)

The So'ja also used this rank in their military structure. Officers of this rank were most commonly seen in the intelligence agencies (such as the Okad Pahn) and other quasi-military organizations associated with the So'ja High Command. (Star Trek: Pioneer (STP))

The rank is equivalent to the Starfleet rank of lieutenant commander, and wing colonel in the Federation Starfighter Corps.

History

The term comes from the armies and marines of Earth. The United States Army abbreviation was MAJ; the Marine Corps used Maj.

Starwars

Up to date as of February 04, 2010

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

A major in the Corellian Security Force.

Major was a military rank used by ground and commando forces (such as the Imperial Army) and also by many starfighter corps.

In the Imperial service, a major ranked between a commander and a colonel. In the Imperial Army, majors were typically battalion commanders, leading units of approximately 600 to 1000 soldiers, while in TIE Fighter formations, they were often the executive officers of entire wings of 72 fighters. They also acted as senior advisors and aides to colonels, generals, and Moffs. One of the most prominent Imperial officers to hold the rank of major was a clone of Royal Guardsman Grodin Tierce, who was in virtual command of the Imperial Remnant's entire military while advising Moff Disra and Flim during the Caamas Document crisis.

In the New Republic, the absorption of personnel from many different militaries with their own traditions may have caused a great deal of confusion in rank structure; but by the time of the Galactic Alliance, the rank of major had been firmly shifted down a grade to sit between captain and Lieutenant-Colonel. In contrast to the Empire, Majors here were often found commanding smaller formations, for instance flights of a few planes within a squadron unit.

In the Galactic Alliance Guard, however, the rank of Major was still borne by battalion commanders like Salle Serpa. This may indicate a revival or continuance of the Imperial Army usage, but it could also have been a response to the anomalous situation of the entire GAG, including Star Destroyer and numerous ground units, being commanded by a colonel rather than a general or a flag officer.

Behind the scenes

In real-life Anglo-American system, a major ranks between a captain and a Lieutenant-Colonel, and this system is used in the later books of the New Jedi Order storyline. But the Imperial rank seems to be slightly higher, apparently equivalent to a Lieutenant-Colonel in US or UK forces. For instance, Turr Phennir was promoted from captain to commander in 3 ABY after the Battle of Derra IV, but was a major at the Battle of Brentaal in 5 ABY. This rank hierarchy corresponds to the historical French usage of the Napoleonic Empire.

The Rogue Squadron novels and comics are ambiguous, perhaps deliberately so, about the exact position of a major in the New Republic hierarchy—the positions of all the ranks between colonel and captain are left somewhat vague; but a passage in one of the novels shows that at least some majors outrank some commanders during 6 ABY. Several interpretations are possible, but we cannot exclude the idea that the normative rank-structure of New Republic Starfighter Command up to the formation of the Galactic Alliance continued to conform to the Imperial system, with "major" equivalent to "Lieutenant-Colonel" and "(Flight) Commander" equivalent to an Anglo-American Major, albeit perhaps with an additional "Wing Commander" rank as an alternative to major.
