Since the foundation of Starfleet, there have been many officers who have held the rank of commander or served as commanding officers.

Earth StarfleetEdit

In the 22nd century, Earth Starfleet was the predecessor of the Federation Starfleet, and originated the use of the commander rank.

The following personnel held the rank of commander:

Federation StarfleetEdit

Following the foundation of the United Federation of Planets and the formation of the Federation Starfleet in 2161, it became one of the most important powers for exploration and defense in the Alpha Quadrant, and is serviced by a large group of commanders.

Senior commandersEdit

Senior officers in command of other personnel are often referred to as "commander" in reference to their position as commanding officers, despite holding ranks higher than commander, such as captains, commodores or admirals.

CommandersEdit

The rank of commander is a common rank held by a starship or starbase first officer or department head, or a smaller ship or space station commanding officer, however officers with this rank often serve at starbases or command divisions of support personnel (such as JAG officers or members of the Starfleet Corps of Engineers).

Due to the vague nature of naval parlance, many commanders referenced as "commanders" may not be full commanders, but may in fact hold the rank of lieutenant commander and have been referred to simply "commander" in everyday parlance.
