Commander is a rank used by the service organizations of many civilizations.
In Star Fleet, the rank of commander is typically held by the first officers starships and is also granted to the commanding officers of the smaller outposts, space stations and starbases. A prerequisite to becoming a commander is by taking the Bridge Officer's Test. As commanders prove their leadership ability over time, they are considered for the difficult and highly competitive promotion to captain.
Proper naval parlance says that, even if a naval vessel is commanded by an officer whose rank is commander, that officer is still able to be referred to as a captain while on the deck of their own vessel.
Rank pips for commander are three solid pips, worn on the collar.
