Captain James T. Kirk
Captain James T. Kirk

Captain is perhaps best known in Star Trek as the title held by the commanding officer of a starship and the rank has been held by several main characters of the various Star Trek series. The very first Captain of Star Trek was Christopher Pike, who commanded the Starship Enterprise during the unaired pilot "The Cage". The Star Trek: The Animated Series would later state Pike was preceded by another Captain, named Robert April, however April’s existence as the first Captain of the Enterprise has never been declared official by Star Trek producers but is generally accepted as such by fans[1].

Captain Christopher Pike appeared in Star Trek wearing a single rank stripe, the same as all other officers onboard the USS Enterprise. This gives rise to the interesting theory that Pike may have been a Captain in title only, but was actually a Commander or possibly even a Lieutenant in rank. Gene Roddenberry would later state that Pike was indeed a Captain and that his generic rank insignia was an effort to demonstrate that all crewmembers of the Enterprise were astronauts first, and officers second; therefore specific rank insignia was unimportant. This idea did not catch on in later Star Trek incarnations, with the next Captain of the Enterprise, the famous James T. Kirk, wearing distinctive Captain insignia separating him from the rest of the crew. The USS Enterprise (NCC-1701), following the 2270-2272 refit In the fictional universe of Star Trek, the USS Enterprise, NCC-1701 was the ship in the original NBC TV series Star Trek, which chronicled the vessels most famous assignment, a five-year mission of exploration and dipomacy under...

Captain Jean-Luc Picard
Captain Jean-Luc Picard

With the exception of the Original Series episode "Court Martial", the only other time a guest star Captain has appeared while not commanding a starship was in the Next Generation episode "The Measure of a Man". The Captain in question, Captain Louvois, was also the only staff officer Captain to appear in Star Trek clarifying that one need not be Captain of a starship to hold the rank of Captain in Starfleet. Other than Louvois, who was a Judge advocate, no other staff officers have ever appeared in Star Trek as Captains. Doctor Leonard McCoy, however, was most likely a Captain at some point in his career, since he is later seen in Star Trek as an Admiral ("Encounter at Farpoint").
