So the basic notion is a Sovereign class ship commanded by an Admiral, leading a small fleet on the edge of explored space. It’s effectively a mobile starbase, and there’s a mixed fleet of maybe a dozen ships of various makes and models that use it as home base.
The Admiral is assisted by a Fleet Captain, who manages the fleet as a whole, and a Flag Captain, who manages the day to day operation of the flagship. The flagship also has some specialized staff to handle some of the fleet-level stuff we don’t usually see on the shows. All of the major departments are thee, but they are geared toward the big picture stuff, coordinating a dozen ships in tactical, exploratory, scientific, diplomatic, and emergency response missions. The senior staff is probably all Commander or above, and maybe there are some civilian scientists and diplomats in the mix, too.
