Re: why was ensign kim not promoted at all in 7 years?

If was the way the chain of command was set up on the Voyager, with Kim always being junior to Torres and Paris on Janeway's staff. Had the ship been in Federation space, Kim likely would have got a promotion by moving to another ship after a few years, IMO.

Another possibility is that Kim might have been the only officer in his operations department with everyone else below him being enlisted.
