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 the blurb, assuming it is accurate, says she's been 'newly promoted', which to me at least implies a rather more permanent change in rank than just being the skipper of the Defiant
for a while.
EDIT: Sorry for doubling up on you, Allyn
, didn't see there was a second page.
