Re: Was it ever stated officially why Harry was an Ensign for 7 years?

Now that I've served in the military, I have a theory on why Kim was never promoted - he just couldn't pass his twice yearly Physical Training test. He seems like the type who would fail by a sit-up or two. He probably had to do all sorts of extra PT, and would just psych himself out during the tests. I've toyed with the idea of writing a fanfic about it....but I haven't written a fanfic in like...12 years or so.

Oh, and as for Tuvok, remember that he was demoted in the first season, although the scene was cut. When he got promoted, it was only back to his original rank. I don't think anyone got promoted to a rank higher than what they started with...
