Captain is a rank used by various organisations.

In Starfleet the rank was the highest line officer rank and was superior to a commander. Captain usually commanded starships or space stations.

In the Starfleet Ground Forces and Starfleet Marine Corps the rank was between lieutenant/first lieutenant and major and they usually commanded companies.

A person in command of a starship is usually given the honorary title of captain regardless of rank.

The Klingon Defence Force used the rank that was referred to as HoD. (The Dominion War Sourcebook)
