"Fleet captain is a rank of officer in naval services and space forces, most notably Federation Starfleet and the Star Navy of the Romulan Star Empire. Fleet captain is an honorary rank, a grade higher than a captain and a grade below a flag officer in most rank structures, although some organizations will refer to a captain as a fleet captain in title only, to show the said captain's seniority over other captains. In the 2250s, Garth of Izar was made a fleet captain, and Christopher Pike was promoted to fleet captain in 2264."
So Fleet Captain is a canon rank as per TOS episodes "The Menagerie" and "Whom Gods Destroy". Okay, so it mainly honorary but it could be made official...
Well it's memory beta, so the only bit that is canon is that the Rank Fleet Captain was mentioned in TOS episodes "The Menagerie" and "Whom Gods Destroy", anything else is still non canon. I'm sure it says nothing about the ranks in those episodes other than their existence.
Delta Rising is the best ex... oh sod it, I just want my Jupiter and Typhoon
