I bet it's some nebula's fault.

Out-universe, I doubt rank of a character was ever an issue a writer, a producer or even an actor would feel the need to think about. Except of course when the plot involved the rank changing. But demotion would have been as good publicity for all the parties involved as promotion, surely.
Now that's interesting. Would the actors be just as happy about a big fat demotion if it gave them a big fat storyline?
