If it is Ezri, how did she make Captain so fast? Is she the next Kirk?
Remember, "Captain" is both a rank and a title. A Lieutenant in command of a ship is referred to as a "Captain." A small ship like the Defiant can be commanded by someone as low as a Lieutenant Commander, as Jadzia did during season six. (Mind you, I realize that the description doesn't say what Dax is commanding, but it's not outside the realm of possibility.)
But she wouldn't be called "Captain Dax", as such. She would only be called 'Captain' by the crew under her command.

Oy. THERE's a mental image I didn't need.
It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed, the hands acquire shakes, the shakes become a warning. It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.
