Legate was a rank given to members of the Cardassian Central Command and highest-ranking flag officers in the Cardassian military. Vaguely familiar with the Breen rank of thot, Legate Damar believed it to be "the equivalent of a legate," but was rebuffed by Gor, much to Weyoun 7's amusement. (DS9: "Strange Bedfellows")

In 2370, upon hearing Legate Parn would be arriving at Deep Space 9 on behalf of the Central Command, the surprised Benjamin Sisko told Jadzia Dax, "A legate? I feel honored." (DS9: "The Maquis, Part II")

Tekeny Ghemor's daughter Iliana made a bone carving for him when he was promoted to legate. He showed it to Kira Nerys in 2371 when he believed her to be his daughter, in the hopes that it would spark recognition in her. (DS9: "Second Skin")

Upon capturing a Klingon Bird-of-Prey in 2372, Dukat planned to contact first Central Command, then the chairman of the Detapa Council, to request his legate title be reinstated immediately as a result. (DS9: "Return to Grace") However, the following year, Benjamin Sisko was surprised that Dukat hadn't reinstated his title himself. Dukat, however, explained that he preferred the title of gul, because he considered it to be "much more hands-on than legate." (DS9: "Ties of Blood and Water")

That year, Leskit recalled spending two years on the Cardassian border fighting glinns, guls, and legates. (DS9: "Soldiers of the Empire")
