Chekov-17 year old Ensign. Since he is some sort of wunderkind, makes sense.
Uhura and Sulu- Lieutenants in their early 20s.
McCoy and Scott- Lt Commanders in their 30s.
Spock- 30ish Commander
Pike- 50ish Captain/Admiral
The only ratio I find odd is Kirk as a 25 year old Captain. Though for most of the movie he is a Lieutenant.
