Template:Disambiguate

Admiral is a military rank, the equivalent of which is used by the service organizations of many civilizations. As a traditional grade, admiral is the most senior flag officer rank of a naval organization, senior to a captain. Admirals command fleets of ships, as opposed to captains commanding single ships or units. In comparison to other ranking systems, this rank is equivalent to the ground-based rank of general, or the Cardassian Union's quasi-military rank of legate.

Many rank systems, including that used by various incarnations of Starfleet, have been known to use several grades of the admiral rank, which include, in order from most senior: fleet admiral, admiral, vice admiral, rear admiral and rear admiral lower half (also known simply as commodore). All grades of Admiral are generally addressed as "Admiral".

This grade is used in some form by many other cultures, including the Romulan Star Empire, the Klingon Empire and the navies of Earth.

Starfleet

These admirals held the flag officer grade of Admiral in Starfleet:

Flag officers, regardless of title or grade (possibly excepting commodores), could be referred to as "admiral", meaning that many admirals referred to in dialog or other references where they were not seen could possibly hold this specific grade. For admirals with an uncertain grade, see Starfleet flag officers.
