Major is an officer rank used by the MACOs and Federation Marines, superior to captain and subordinate to lieutenant colonel and colonel. They are the first field officer grade amongst the Federation Marines and often acts as an executive officer in battalions.
The Romulans also used the rank in their Ground Forces and Tal Shiar. They were both above the rank of captain while the RGF was below centurion and in the Tal Shiar it was below colonel. (The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon) Both organizations referred to majors as aendehs in Rihannsu. (RIS Bouteina)
The So'ja also used this rank in their military structure. Officers of this rank were most commonly seen in the intelligence agencies (such as the Okad Pahn) and other quasi-military organizations associated with the So'ja High Command. (Star Trek: Pioneer)
