Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The Captain — from the Latin caput, meaning "head" — is in charge. The Commanding Officer of The Squad or the Command Roster. It's good to be the Captain. Whether this character is the Mission Control or actually working in the field, he/she is clearly the one running things. Any Cool Ship must have The Captain — no matter whether it's a Cool Boat, a Cool Starship, or a Cool Airship. He is expected to stay with that ship no matter what. And any Captain must have a Captain's Log.
The Captain will almost always hold said actual rank, even if their performance would allow the Captain to move up the chain of command. (Also true in non-naval branches of the armed forces (Army, Marines, etc.), since Captain is the highest of the Company Grade ranks, i.e. the officer ranks that participate in actual combat. From Major onward, officer ranks are more administrative.) This is sometimes confused by the naval convention that anyone in command of a given ship is referred to as "captain", no matter their rank (for most vessels smaller than a cruiser, the Captain is Commander, and smaller vessels like minesweepers can be commanded by a Lieutenant) — and all other "captains" receive a promotion for the duration of their stay. Horatio Hornblower becomes a captain while still a Midshipman.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Regardless of actual rank held, however, under most modern and historical laws the captain of a naval vessel is the Omnipotent Being on it when out in sea, since it is his personal responsibility to return to land with his crew complete and his ship in one piece. And not even the God-Emperor of the Universe can give orders past him in this case.note  Before radio and other long-range communication methods were invented, it was basically impossible to give a captain orders while he was at sea. Thus the importance of selecting captains who are very capable of independent judgment, who bear sole responsibility for their decisions. To this extent, portrayal of The Captain as a Reasonable Authority Figure, an Officer and a Gentleman (sometimes in contrast with officers from other military branches) is undoubtedly Truth in Television.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Assuming he is a part of the main cast, The Captain (often along with his senior officers) is often depicted doing things that really should be delegated out to lower-ranked, more expendable personnel in order to have some tangible things to do (unlike in real life where officers are often doing lots of important but boring "office work"). However, since there's no drama in conferences, meetings, and paperwork, most writers would rather have him behave unlike a real captain and hope no one notices. Often his participation in minor issues serves as Character Development, so that when a grave decision has to be made, he will be able to say "I Did What I Had to Do" without alienating the audience in the process.
Sometimes, however, The Captain is instead a background Reasonable Authority Figure, while the narrative focuses on people under his command. It's a road less taken because it's dramatically tricky to carry off, at least in a visual medium. Star Trek: The Next Generation tried a form of it in the early days, leaving Picard on the bridge and having Riker be the 'field guy'. While it made sense, it just didn't work in regards to drama. Indeed, this approach works best when The Captain is considerably older and noticeably unsuitable to physical action for reasons such as age or infirmity. This leaves a younger, less mature character to act as the "deputy" who is allowed to run around, get in and out of trouble, make mistakes, get involved romantically, learn valuable lessons, discover new things about himself, and do all sorts of things that The Captain would have already done to be where he is today, the general perception being that by the time a character reaches the point of becoming The Captain, his character has little room left for development. This approach is occasionally taken in anime but in many such cases, The Captain is often fated to die sometime before story's end so that the younger character may truly develop into a mature character and live up to the hope his mentor had for him.
A median approach between the two is to imply that available personnel are in a relatively small number, thus forcing and justifying the presence of the Captain and senior officers in field situations, or to outright establish that The Captain's skill and experience are just that indispensable due to Authority Equals Asskicking, thus making him the best one to handle the Monster of the Week.
Compare The Hero, The Good Captain, Supporting Leader, Commanding Coolness, Colonel Badass, Majorly Awesome, Captain Superhero. Contrast Da Chief. Do not confuse this with the Captain in Commedia dell'Arte, who's a Miles Gloriosus.
This trope concerns captains of ships and vessels of all kind and is almost exclusively a Navy trope. A Captain in the army is a lower-level officer who might at most command an infantry company of 120-160 men, or a tank squadron, or an artillery troop. He is higher than a lieutenant but lower than a major, and the rank equates to a Navy lieutenant (a few grades below a Navy captain). An Army captain might be viewed as a Rupert with five or six years practical experience, and it is the highest level to which a British Army officer is automatically promoted: promotion to higher ranks is by competitive selection.

Whoever's in charge of the ship Kydd is serving aboard at the moment during his early years in the Navy.
What Kydd becomes in Command, though at that point, he's technically only a commander.
In Victory, Kydd finally "makes post" and becomes captain of the Cool Boat, L'Aurore.

In Company of Heroes, the British Troops refer to you as "The Captain". There is also a unit called "Captain" which must be built unlock the M3 Stuart Light Tank and the Next Tier, however he is not a Hero Unit (he's actually pretty weak) and does not represent the player in any way.

In Star Trek Online, much like in the movies and series, you will be "The Captain" of a ship. Although you start out as Ensign in the Tutorial Missions, then you get promoted to Lieutenant and get your own Ship, because Starfleet lacks Captains for all the ships with so many threats around them, later you rank up to eventually become Captain in rank too. But only for short as you will fairly soon be a Fleet Admiral, but still be in control of a ship (because of the beforementioned lack of Captains).
The game also points out in its loading screens, quite correctly, that naval tradition holds that any person in command of a ship is addressed as "Captain," even if they don't hold that rank.
The situation is much the same for Klingon and Romulan characters, although in the Romulan case there isn't actually any rank called captain (Romulans refer to the analogous rank as Commander instead).

In Sunrider, this duty is split between Kayto Shields and Ava Crescentia due to the nature of the Sunrider as a carrier vessel. Kayto is the one who holds the rank of Captain, is addressed as such, and commands the Sunrider's carrier group (including its ryders and any attached ships), as well as ordering any use of the Vanguard Cannon. Ava (the XO) serves as flag captain for the Sunrider itself during battle.

Captain John Brannigan, in the Revelation Space series by Alastair Reynolds. In addition to being over 700 years old, Captain Brannigan is a mostly cybernetic member of the Ultranauts, a cybernized interstellar space-faring faction. Near the end of Revelation Space, Captain Brannigan, who has a variant of the Melding Plague (a virus that distorts nanotech machinery, and turns it malignant), is unfrozen, and his nanotech virus takes over the ship, rendering the Captain also his own Cool Ship. In Absolution Gap, he uses as a sort of avatar a 21st-century mechanical spacesuit, and kills invaders of himself by turning walls into spikes, and setting up similar traps.

Captain Simian of Captain Simian and the Space Monkeys qualifies. Though he's very open to suggestions from his crew, he's always the team leader. He gets rebuked all the time by his second-in-command for jumping in headfirst without a plan, but it usually works out; his crew is confident in his ability to get them out of any situation.

Jonathan Archer (Star Trek: Enterprise)
In the Mirror Universe double episode "In a Mirror, Darkly", Archer is a Commander to Captain Forrest (Admiral in "our" 'verse). He leads a mutiny and takes command by force. While crewmembers loyal to Forrest end up freeing Forrest, who takes the ship back from Archer, Forrest is later killed (along with the ISS Enterprise), while Archer becomes captain of the USS Defiant. It's only a temporary step, though, as his goal is not the captain's chair but The Emperor's throne.

Tons of 'em in Honor Harrington, including main character Honor Harrington. This is slightly subverted in that Harrington only commands "one ship" in the first book; afterwards, she acts as CO to task groups and fleets.
Well, in Honor Among Enemies she plays single captain again, and in both The Honor of the Queen and The Short Victorious War she's technically the captain of a ship but also has responsibilities to a larger task group. It's not until her reinstatement in In Enemy Hands that she's promoted past the point of responsibility for a single ship.

Brother Captains Gabriel Angelos, Davian Thule, Indrick Boreale and Apollo Diomedes from Dawn of War, all from the Blood Ravens chapter.
From Warhammer 40000 Spacemarine, there's Captain Titus from the Ultramarines' 2nd Company.
It's, at least, justified in this 'verse why a battle barge commander personally goes down in a drop-pod to battle hordes of Tyranids. That's what a Space Marine ought to do, no matter the rank.

Church in Red vs. Blue, while the de-facto leader of the titular Blues, is the only one to actually consider himself a Captain, despite their previous Captain's death occurring prior to the start of the series.
Subverted in an odd way as he's tied for the second lowest rank of either army; he's only a standard Private (along with Donut and Caboose), compared to Minor Junior Private Negative First Class Grif (although he might technically still be a sergeant) and Privates First Class Simmons and Tucker.

Captain Veronica Dare from Halo 3: ODST, leader of the squad of Helljumpers that the Rookie is part of, would count, if not for the presence of Gunnery Sergeant Eddie Buck. Despite not actually holding the rank, he's a far better fit for the role. In large part due to him being played by Captain Reynolds. There's also the little fact that Dare's not ODST. While she does hold the rank of captain in the UNSC Navy, she's primarily an ONI spook. Naturally, your typical ground-pounder will resent that.

Jack Harkness (Torchwood, but not Doctor Who; ironically, it's mostly in the latter that he's referred to as "Captain Jack").
Technically, his greatcoat bears the insignia of "Group Captain", which is a full title, is never referred to as "Captain", and has the equivalent rank of "Colonel" in the armed forces. And in his first appearance, his uniform bears the insignia of "Squadron Leader", which has the equivalent rank of "Major".

Parodied in Homestuck, when Vriska declares herself the Captain of the expedition to find Lord English's weakness. She later learns that the "naval nicknames" she gave several other characters, such as "Commodore" and "Admiral", actually means they outrank her. (The characters given the names already knew this, and had been silently laughing at her misunderstanding the whole time.)

The USS Enterprise from Star Trek (2009) goes through no less than three commanders; in order, Captain Christopher Pike, Commander Spock, and cadet James T. Kirk. Kirk even fulfills his Badass Boast when he becomes Captain of the]] Enterprise]] in three years, something Pike said would be possible in eight.
And our favorite Ax-Crazy, Captain Nero of the Narada.
By the beginning of Star Trek Beyond, Kirk is beginning to feel The Chains of Commanding, but he's also become A Father to His Men as something of compensation.

Lieutenant-Commander Tommy Catlow, who escaped from a pre-war submarine disaster (HMS Thetes sank with a full crew in the Mersey Estuary in 1937. Catlow, then a junior officer, tested an untried and unreliable escape system, and got out to deliver messages to the rescue team). He spent the early part of his war sinking Axis shipping in the Med. Captured by the Italiansnote After escaping from a sinking submarine for the second time, he attempted escape so frequently that he was handed over to the Germans and incarcerated at Colditz. At war's end, he was on the short-list for a place in the famous glider... the makers of the TV drama Colditz wrote him in as the token Royal Navy officer, Lt. Dick Player.

Stargate:
Stargate Universe: As the ranking officer present, Col. Everett Young is effectively The Captain of the Destiny, but the politics surrounding that situation make his standing very, very tenuous.
Command of the Destiny may be up for grabs, but there ain't no question that Colonel Samantha Carter calls the shots as captain of the USAF General George Hammond.
Jack O'Neill, Stargate SG-1. Though he started off as a Colonel and ended up a two-star General (in Stargate Universe he's been given a third star) — Colonel is the closest rank in the Air Force to what people think of when they think "Captain" anyways.
Carter becomes the Captain of SG-1 in season 8 (when O'Neill isn't with them), and Mitchel takes over the role in seasons 9 and 10.
In fact, in SG-1 and Atlantis, the Captains of most of the Air Force ships like the Prometheus or the Odyssey are ranked as Colonel. This is accurate, considering that in the U.S. Military, all aerospace operations (presumably including space fleets) are operated by the Air Force.
John Sheppard of Stargate Atlantis, too. Although he started a Major and became a Lieutenant Colonel, he has remarked that "a lot of people never thought I'd make it past Captain"...
The Navy rank of "Captain" corresponds to the Air Force/Army/Marine rank of "Colonel". Both are Officer Grade Six (O-6) with rank insignia being a silver eagle. The Air Force/Army/Marine rank of "Captain" corresponds to the Navy rank of "Lieutenant". Both are Officer Grade Three (O-3) with rank insignia of two silver bars.
However... (you knew there was going to be a "however"). In the Navy, the commanding officer of a vessel underway is always referred to as "Captain", regardless of his or her actual rank. A visiting Navy officer with the actual rank of Captain is referred to as "Commodore"; a visiting or assigned ground/air forces officer with the rank of Captain is referred to as "Major". There can be only one Captain on a ship. (This is a combination/expansion of several previous entries.)

Tavi in the Codex Alera books. He begins his service in the legions as a cursor—a spy—in an experimental legion made up of volunteers from different parts of Alera. The First Aleran, as this legion is called, would never attack any one city because there would be officers in the ranks who would not stand for it, and would theoretically be useful as a highly mobile force that could put down trouble as it happened around the realm; in reality, it was pushed through the Senate and came to fruition to serve as an espionage hotbed. This "show and pony" legion was thought of as the one that would not see combat in the incipient civil war, but it just happened to be in the way of an invading Canim armada. Ritualists in the aforementioned armada brought down a wall on lightning onto the command tent during a meeting, effectively wiping out the upper echelons of officers and leaving Tavi in charge. He's very good at it, given that he has a functional grasp of the Canish language, society and tactical ability, and that he's a very flexible thinker and tactician, and ends up being in charge of the most battle-ready legion in Alera. His legionnaires adore him and will willingly follow him to their deaths.
There's also Captain Demos, captain of the Slive. He serves as absolute master on his ship because he can control the whole ship with his mind. He also tells Tavi that while he was the Princeps, Demos gives the orders on the ship; Tavi, regardless of his rank on land, would merely be a passenger at sea.

Super Robot Wars, being a huge mecha crossover, naturally has a couple of their own, including:
Lt. Colonel Daitetsu Minase. Cool Old Guy. Captain of the Hagane, which has a BFG attached to the front. Occasionally commands the Kurogane, which has a DRILL instead.
Tetsuya. Starts as Daitetsu's sidekick, but eventually inherits the Kurogane and comes into his own after Daitetsu is killed.
Lt. Lee Linjun. Jerkass. Turns on the heroes. Trys to ram the Kurogane, which as mentioned before, has a drill on the front; not his brightest moment.
Lefina Enfield. Captain of the Hiryuu Custom and considered a Teen Genius (youngest person to ever pilot a battleship), and the only female captain. She and the Hiryuu Custom could be considered Shot Outs to Yurika Misumaru and the Nadesico.
And sometimes, Elzam von Branstein takes this role and rides the Kurogane, after Tetsuya takes over Hagane.

Captain Okita from Uchuu Senkan Yamato (a.k.a. Captain Avatar from Star Blazers).
Captain Harlock.
Captain Zero of Cosmo Warrior Zero
Queen Emeraldas, although not referred to as 'Captain', is quite capable of managing a starship.
The various captains of The Galaxy Railways.

Much like Col. Jack O'Neill, Skipper from The Penguins of Madagascar fits this role as the head of his Five four man band. In one episode, he becomes a literal ship captain when they build the Penguin One spaceship.

Benjamin Sisko (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine; though originally he was a Commander, he would get promoted).
Major Kira gets promoted to Colonel, and takes over when Sisko joins the Prophets. In the relaunch novels, new character Elias Vaughn takes over her position as XO. (Vaughn himself later succeeds Kira as The Captain, although as a result of a Time Skip this period has yet to be chronicled.)
Eddington lampshades this when Sisko is promoted. People don't join Starfleet to be admirals or security officers or any other rank; they do it for the captain's chair.

Halo:
Captain Jacob Keyes of the cruiser UNSC Pillar Of Autumn in Halo: Combat Evolved and later his daughter, Commander Miranda Keyes of the frigate UNSC In Amber Clad in Halo 2 and [[Halo3.
Fleet Admiral Sir Terrance Hood in Halo 2 and 3 probably qualifies as well.
Captain Veronica Dare from Halo 3: ODST, leader of the squad of Helljumpers that the Rookie is part of, would count, if not for the presence of Gunnery Sergeant Eddie Buck. Despite not actually holding the rank, he's a far better fit for the role. In large part due to him being played by Captain Reynolds. There's also the little fact that Dare's not ODST. While she does hold the rank of captain in the UNSC Navy, she's primarily an ONI spook. Naturally, your typical ground-pounder will resent that.
Rtas 'Vadum(ee) (AKA Half-Jaw), who became Shipmaster (captain) of the Shadow of Intent and Fleetmaster (admiral) of the Fleet of Retribution.
From Halo 4 onward, Thomas Lasky takes on this role. The previous captain of his ship, Andrew Del Rio, is a subversion; he turns out to be incompetent and loses the respect of both his subordinates and superiors when he tries to arrest the main character.

In the first game, Lieutenant-Commander Shepard is The Captain of the Normandy SR-1 after being promoted from Number Two. This is consistent with the rest of the game; in reality, most modern warships are actually commanded by a Lt. Commander/Commander, rather than an actual Captain.

She's also set to be in charge of defending the Earth from threats from space in the new Marvel universe.

The quarians of the Migrant Fleet refer to Shepard as Captain Shepard, despite Shepard pointing out that s/he only ever reached the rank of Commander. It's explained that because s/he commands a ship and is responsible for the lives of their crew, this is Shepard's legal status under quarian law, allowing them the authority to speak as an advocate for their crew in legal matters.
The Russian version of the game has Shepard referred to as "Captain", as the Russian equivalent of "Commander" is "Captain 2nd Class" or "Captain" for short. The translators just figured that transliterating "Commander" would be too awkward for Russian gamers.

ThunderCats (2011) has a few
In "Old Friends" achieving this rank rapidly is a Downplayed element of the Backstory of Grune and Panthro, who both see it as a stepping stone to becoming a Four-Star Badass in Thundera's army.
In "Ramlak Rising" it is Deconstructed with Captain Koinelius Tunar, who's fixation on Animal Nemesis the Ramlak has made him prioritize Revenge Before Reason and steadily eroded the relationship between himself and his crew.
In "Journey To The Tower of Omens," the hands-on, field-leader type is exemplified in Captain Tygus, who conducts a one-man assault on a heavily guarded tower powered by a MacGuffin he's Plundering for his Commander.

Captain Juno Eclipse in The Force Unleashed II where she gets her own frigate to command.
The novelization reveals that she is a pretty competent commander, although she is heavily criticized by some of the Rebel Alliance leaders (it's all political). In the past, she was in command of an elite bomber wing and convinced Vader to amend his order to kill civilians.

Murrue Ramius is The Captain of the Cosmic Era, though Talia Gladys from Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny also makes a good showing (and indeed the two women have quite a bit in common). Ramius' gradual acceptance of her duties and responsibilities as The Captain is an important subplot of SEED.
As is Talia's carrying hers out to the bitter end in Destiny.
Also in SEED/SEED Destiny are Captain Natarle Badgiruel, who captains the Archangel's rival, the Dominion, and Captain Neo Roanoke of the Girty Lue, a bonafide villain and Manipulative Bastard who causes loads of problems for the heroes in the first part of Destiny.

Galaxy Quest plays it straight in a Show Within a Show of the same name with Commander Peter Quincy Taggart of the NSEA Protector (an obvious Expy of Kirk). The film, however, is about the Real Life actors playing them. Jason Nesmith, the actor playing Taggart on the show, definitely does not qualify as this trope, although he tries to be, when a bunch of naive aliens show up expecting Nesmith to be their hero Taggart (they have no concept of fiction and assume all Earth transmissions are documentaries).

The Gundam metaverse, with its love for Cool Ships, has a large share of Captains.
Captain Bright Noa from the original Mobile Suit Gundam survived so many of its sequels, he got dubbed "The Eternal Captain" by the fandom. In a series filled with Grey-and-Grey Morality, Bright tends to be the one authority figure the fans count as truly uncorrupt and an upstanding force for good, despite his occasional personality flaws.

Mobile Suit Gundam AGE has three, befitting its generational nature: the first is Grodek Ainoa (who actually stole the ship to pursue a personal agenda, but is otherwise a pretty decent guy), the second is former Bridge Bunny Millais Alloy, and the third is the young, timid, and woefully unprepared Natola Einus (though, to her credit, she gives her best effort at being a good commander and starts coming into her own near the end of the series).

James T. Kirk (Star Trek), promoted to Admiral in Star Trek: The Motion Picture, is the real, true, one-and-only classic example of this trope in fictional media. However, the writers conspire to trap him in command of the Enterprise and its crew for the duration of that four-movie plot arc, and at the end of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, he is permanently reduced in rank to Captain. This seems to satisfy him, as he feels his proper place in the world is in the Captain's chair; in Generations, he tells Picard never to let himself be promoted out of it. (Though that might be due to the prevalence of Insane Admirals in Trek).
Spock would agree that Kirk belongs in the captain's chair.
So would Bones, in fact, and those two never agree about anything.
Spock becomes a Captain sometime between The Motion Picture and The Wrath Of Khan; Scotty is promoted during The Search For Spock, and is named "Captain of Engineering" for good measure; Sulu becomes a Captain between The Final Frontier and The Undiscovered Country; and McCoy must be promoted to Captain at some point between the TOS movies and TNG, in order to become Admiral of Starfleet Medical.

Being about pirates, One Piece has a lot of them. Hero Captain Monkey D. Luffy deserves special mention for appearing to be a complete Idiot Hero and Leeroy Jenkins, but eventually shows that he is actually a talented and inspiring leader with a very firm grasp on whether or not he and his crew can win a battle. His authority over his team is also absolute, regardless of his bouts of idiocy — when you have a loyal swordsman like Roronoa Zoro to ensure that his authority is respected, well, it's a good thing The Power of Friendship is the more prominent motivation.

Futurama's Captain Zapp Brannigan, not-at-all-erstwhile hero of the Democratic Order of Planets, and apparently its entire general staff. Definitely a subversion of the trope, and a gigantic send-up of the mythology around Captain James Kirk. Brannigan's portrayal was actually intended to be less Kirk specifically, and more what the real (and now rather doughy and loopy) William Shatner would be like as a starship captain. Turns out, not a very good one.

In Apollo 13
Flight Director Gene Kranz at Mission Control is a model leader who commands respect. Unassuming but firm, he's cool on many levels; he's calm and collected, exactly what is required when time is at the essence, makes critical, unprecedented and right decisions on his feet and never fails to be assertive but polite. When the occasion requires it he's stingy without being smug and proudly shoots down any defeatism. His empathy solidifies him as the perfect captain.

Buzz Lightyear of Star Command is a Captain. Like he could be anything but. For whatever reason, in the Toy Story movies Buzz assumes more of a futuristic Knight in Shining Armor role and the role of the Captain is assumed by Woody. While Woody and Buzz are equals, it is Woody who is the commander in chief of the green army men and who coordinates missions and projects.

Lelouch, of Code Geass, founded and rescued the Japanese resistance movement from near-inevitable defeat and obscurity by transforming them into "The Order of Black Knights" and using his abilities and natural strategic talent to enable daring and dramatic displays of resistance and victory over the oppressors (motivated at least in part by his personal desire for revenge, given that Lelouch is an Anti-Hero).

Kuroko no Basuke: The team captains are most of the time someone different than The Ace, being older and more mature than them and have actual leading qualities to keep their teammates in check. As such, they are most often designated with the number 4. Akashi and Hanamiya are the only aces who function as the team captain as they are able to coordinate, instruct and command their teammates.

The Wing Commander series has more than a few, in all its incarnations, but the split between the title of Captain and the rank is made most clear in the first part of the novel End Run, titled "Milk Run". The corvette sent on the reconnaissance mission is commanded by a Lt. Commander who, in the course of a mission, clashes with a mission specialist that holds a higher rank.

Almost every entry in the Ultra Series has a captain as the leader of the defense team, usually a man about 10-20 years older than the rest of the team. Depending on the show, he either heads out with the rest of the team on field missions or he stays at base to give commands most of the time. Notable examples include: Toshio Muramatsu from the original Ultraman (who paved the way for the rest to come), Kaoru Kiriyama from Ultraseven (his title was "Commander", but he served the same role), Megumi Iruma from Ultraman Tiga (the first female example in the franchise), Gousuke Hibiki from Ultraman Dyna (much more of a Boisterous Bruiser than most), Shingo Sakomizu from Ultraman Mebius (who acted as The Mentor for GUYS), and Hiroshi Hyuuga from Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle (a more literal example as he's a spaceship captain and a badass at that).
A rare crossover example: Dan Moroboshi, protagonist and human form of Ultraseven, served this role in Ultraman Leo, being also Gen/Leo's mentor.
Ultraman Gaia had a far larger crew than a typical series, so there were two captains — Seiichiro Tsutsumi (who commanded the various XIG squadrons) and Akio Ishimuro (who worked with the bridge operation team).

William McTavish of the SS Longhope in Passage to November, a 40-ish, decorated veteran of the Royal Navy who came to America at the request of Cleveland Transport to run their sole "salty."
Retired Royal Navy Commander? Check. Brawny Scotsman with a hair-trigger temper? Check. Shades of Crazy Jealous Guy who will stop at nothing to protect the young woman in his care? Check and check mate!
Having survived many a storm on the open seas, it takes a lot to scare him. But the Great Lakes are prone to sudden gales, particularly in the autumn — the worst being called the November Witch, the sort of gale so vicious they're known to rip steel hulls to shreds and take entire ships to the bottom of the lake. His greatest fear is realized in November 1913 when the worst storm ever to strike the Great Lakes tears a swath of destruction from Duluth to Buffalo. Before it's over, more than 20 ships will have been forever lost and nearly 300 souls will have perished including most of the Longhope's crew.

Pirates of the Caribbean
Captain Jack Sparrow is either the greatest or worst pirate captain ever. Maybe both. Funny enough, for most of the time, he's not the one in charge, though he'd like to be (and he does manage to get a lot of characters, even enemies to do his bidding).
We also have the Four-Star Badass version, Commodore Norrington, commander of the HMS Dauntless. He, perhaps, fits this trope best (during the first movie, anyway).
The villains give us a ton of Large Ham captains. Captain Barbossa, sometime commander of the Black Pearl. Davy Jones, commander of the Flying Dutchman.
Then we got Captain Blackbeard in the fourth movie. Complete with Cool Sword and Cool Ship.

The Imperial Navy in Warhammer 40,000 obviously has captains, but it also has the even more awesome title of Lord-Captain (also sometimes known as flag captain, but that doesn't sound quite as cool), which is reserved for the captain in command of a detachment of vessels. It is a title so awesome even in-universe, that most Rogue Traders refer themselves as lord-captain despite most of them not qualifying on the title(while large Rogue Trader dynasties do have fleets of ships, most of the time they operate independently), and technically since it's a rank in the Navy, which Rogue Traders aren't part of, they wouldn't be able to use it even them. Not that any of them gives a damn.
The individuals in charge of large Space Marine ships are referred to as "shipmaster", since they often have Space Marine Brother-Captains on the bridge at the same time and using the same rank would cause confusion. The shipmaster himself is not a Space Marine, but a Chapter serf: an individual selected for (and not being up to par for) Space Marine training, and serving the Chapter otherwise.

Doctor Who:
The Doctor is technically the captain of the TARDIS, though he's never referred to as such, and is usually also the entire crew.
Jack Harkness (Torchwood, but not Doctor Who; ironically, it's mostly in the latter that he's referred to as "Captain Jack").
Technically, his greatcoat bears the insignia of "Group Captain", which is a full title, is never referred to as "Captain", and has the equivalent rank of "Colonel" in the armed forces. And in his first appearance, his uniform bears the insignia of "Squadron Leader", which has the equivalent rank of "Major".
"Voyage of the Damned": The space Titanic is commanded by Captain Hardaker, who gives leave to the other crewmen. He's also dying and has been paid off with money for his family to wreck the ship.
"The Waters of Mars": Captain Adelaide Brooke is the commander of the first human expedition to Mars, and is very much in charge of her base and her ship.

Downplayed in Blake's 7 as the crew of the Liberator (and in Season D, Scorpio) are criminals, rebels and mercenaries who by their very nature tend to reject authority. They generally accept Blake (and later Avon) as their leader, but have been known to outvote them on occasion (this is why Blake and sometimes Avon are Manipulative Bastards). Avon was a Sour Supporter to Blake, and when he becomes The Captain finds himself in a running dispute with cocky newcomer Tarrant over who should be in charge of the ship.

Similarly, Slam Dunk also has team captains who serve as the Team Dad/Big Brother Mentor and act as the pillar for their teams, like Shohoku's Akagi and Ryonan's Uozumi. However, the two strongest players in Kanagawa, Maki and Fujima respectively, are both this role and The Ace of Kainan and Shoyo respectively.

Optimus Prime (or Primal), any Transformers series. In Generation 1, he was eventually replaced by Rodimus Prime, who passed the mantle onto Fortress Maximus in Headmasters.
The Optimus Prime of Transformers Animated is more The Hero than The Captain. Technically, Ultra Magnus fills that role.
Ultra Magnus commands the entire Autobot Defense Force, while Optimus Prime was captain of a Space Bridge repair force, and now commands a single unit of Autobots on Earth (which are the same 'bots really). The rank of Prime is thus equivalent to the rank of Captain, while the rank of Magnus better matches that of Admiral, or Grand Admiral.
Optimus Primal actually was a ship captain until the events of the show. The Maximals' base is their crashed ship, the Axalon, in the first few seasons. Then they relocate to the Ark. Megatron (not the original one) is also, technically, captain of the Darksyde, even though his allies stole it from the Maximals. Likewise, the crashed hulk of the Darksyde is the Predacons' base. Near the end of the series, they relocate to the Nemesis.

Sharpe: Richard Sharpe is made The Captain of the South Essex light company in the first novel (well, the first one in writing order). He ends up as acting battalion commander on several occasions (the closest equivalent to commanding a ship) and briefly acting brigade commander (roughly equivalent to a commodore), although much of his time in senior ranks (he rises to lieutenant-colonel) is spent in staff posts. It probably helps that the South Essex gets through a lot of colonels (two killed, one injured, three relieved of command).

Commander Adama (Battlestar Galactica), commanding officer of the titular warship in both versions. The peculiarities of the Colonial rank system make him a Commander rather than a Captain. Later in the re-imagined series, after Admiral Cain's death, Roslin promotes him to Admiral.
Also Admiral Cain and Lee Adama, neither of whom held the rank of captain at the time (Lee was promoted for the purpose): both filled this role when they were each in charge of the Pegasus.
Lee Adama (call-sign "Apollo") was the re-imagining of Captain Apollo from the original Galactica series, holding the rank of Captain from the Miniseries to Season 2. Becomes a Mythology Gag when Laura Roslin nicknames him "Captain Apollo" after initially mistaking his call-sign for his actual name, but continues to do so afterwards as it has a nice ring to it.
Deconstructed when the fleet decides to replace their obsolete planetary-based system of government with one based on their spaceships. The politicians are used to negotiation and compromise, but as each captain is used to running their ship their own way, the government quickly devolves into a Not-So-Omniscient Council of Bickering.

John Sheppard of Stargate Atlantis, too. Although he started a Major and became a Lieutenant Colonel, he has remarked that "a lot of people never thought I'd make it past Captain"...
The Navy rank of "Captain" corresponds to the Air Force/Army/Marine rank of "Colonel". Both are Officer Grade Six (O-6) with rank insignia being a silver eagle. The Air Force/Army/Marine rank of "Captain" corresponds to the Navy rank of "Lieutenant". Both are Officer Grade Three (O-3) with rank insignia of two silver bars.
However... (you knew there was going to be a "however"). In the Navy, the commanding officer of a vessel underway is always referred to as "Captain", regardless of his or her actual rank. A visiting Navy officer with the actual rank of Captain is referred to as "Commodore"; a visiting or assigned ground/air forces officer with the rank of Captain is referred to as "Major". There can be only one Captain on a ship. (This is a combination/expansion of several previous entries.)

In Captain French, or the Quest for Paradise, the titular protagonist is a space trader, who owns a merchant ship. However, he doesn't really have a crew (the ship's computer is smart enough to do everything with the help of the robots). Most of the time, he travels alone, although he gets married (again) at the start of the novel.

Martian Successor Nadesico goes a long way in exploring... let's face it, deconstructing the function of a vessel's captain during its fifth episode. The conclusion reached by the Magical Computer is that the primary function, in an age of centralized command, is projecting an aura of confidence and collected calm, so that his subordinates can keep a cool head in critical situations. The analysis even notes that older, dignified captains (read: Captain Okita) have been increasingly replaced by young and attractive men and women who could motivate contemporary audiences...excuse me, crews. The Captain of the show, Yurika Misumaru, is a blatant and probably deliberate subversion of that analysis, since she is an actual tactical genius as well as a charismatic figurehead.
In the same chapter, they do a lot of funerals for each religion of the people that died in the previous chapter.

Babylon 5:
Jeffrey Sinclair serves the role in the first season, a rare Commander instead of a Captain). The fact that Sinclair holds a greater position than his rank would normally warrant becomes a major plot point, as we learn that he was specifically requested to command Babylon 5 by the Minbari. In "Eyes" we meet a higher-ranking officer who resents this fact and attempts a coup.
John Sheridan, second through fourth seasons — he has to resign at the end of the fourth season and becomes the President of the new Interstellar Alliance instead.)
Elizabeth Lochley steps into the figurative Captain's chair (B5 doesn't have a Cool Chair) for the fifth season and beyond. Susan Ivanova, the XO, gets promoted and takes command of a new Earth Warlock-class destroyer, due to the actress not returning for Season 5.

Jean-Luc Picard (Star Trek: The Next Generation). To the series' credit, Picard is often shown in his ready room (the captain's personal office with access to the bridge), presumably working on the mundane administrative duties of his rank.
Will Riker temporarily took the rank and position of captain in the two-part episode "The Best of Both Worlds", and would later permanently move on and become The Captain of the USS Titan at the end of Star Trek: Nemesis.
In Countdown, Data (Back from the Dead) is shown to succeed Picard as The Captain of the Enterprise.
