Commodore is the lowest commissioned Starfleet flag officer rank in the Star Trek fictional universe. It exists in the franchise's 22nd and 23rd centuries; its existence in the 24th century is uncertain. This rank is analogous to the actual military rank of commodore â€“ below admiral (usually rear admiral) and above fleet captain or the line officer rank of captain â€“ in some navies.
