After TOS the rank of Commodore was given to Station and District Commanders. Ship commanders went from Captain to Rear Admiral. Remember, STO is multinational, so Rear Admiral had two levels to allow for this point of view. Be happy we do not any Captain Lieutenants as the Russian navy does! It's Rear Admiral, Fleet Admiral, Vice Admiral, then Admiral. Commodore is an honorary rank for senior captains who had retired in the American navy and U.S. Coast Guard Flotilla commanders. I might be wrong, but that's how I remember it.
