* In ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'', 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 be soon Rear Admiral or with "Season 2" up to Vice Admiral, but still be in control of a ship (because of the beforementioned lack of Captains).

** 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 [[CommandingCoolness Commander]] instead).

* James T. Kirk (''[[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Star Trek]]''), promoted to Admiral in ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture'', 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 ''Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome'', he is [[{{Unishment}} 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.

* The Kings in ''{{Anime/K}}'' tend to be this sort of leader, but only Munakata, the Blue King, is referred to as Captain, considering that his clan is the military-styled one.
