You may be looking for the ground-based rank of captain.

Captain was the highest line-officer military ranks among commissioned officers in some star-faring species in their star navies. A person holding the rank of captain was immediately superior to a commander and immediately subordinate to a rear admiral, lower half, and could serve in a wide range of high-responsibility roles, including, but not limited to, starship command, starbase or space station command, or an executive officer.

A person in command of a starship was addressed as "Captain" no matter what rank she held.
