  Lieutenant colonel - Memory Alpha, the Star Trek Wiki
Lieutenant colonel (also referred to as field colonel in the Bajoran Militia) is a military rank, usually found in ground fighting forces (as opposed to naval services).
Lieutenant colonels of the US Army and US Marine Corps commonly commanded battalions, which were composed of a variable number (but never less than two) of companies, batteries, or similar smaller units, along with necessary headquarters personnel.
The lieutenant colonel rank is equivalent to the naval or Starfleet rank of commander.

  Lieutenant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The word lieutenant derives from French; the lieu meaning "place" as in a position; and tenant meaning "holding" as in "holding a position"; thus a "lieutenant" is somebody who holds a position in the absence of his superior.
In French history, "lieutenant du roi" was a title borne by the officer sent with military powers to represent the king in certain provinces.
Sometimes the rank of Third Lieutenant is used, typically as a cadet or temporary rank indicating that the holder is a commissioned officer in the chain of command—barely.
