Legate was a title given to both military and political leaders.
Legate was a rank given to members of the Central Command and high-ranking flag officers in the Cardassian military. This rank was roughly equivalent to a Starfleet Admiral. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine)
The So'ja also used the title of Legate, but in their government structure, the position was an elected one similar to a prime minister; the full title officially being First Legate to the Senate and So'jan People. In 2381, the position was held by Hasz'fos. (Star Trek: Pioneer: "Fall of the Apollo")
