Ensign, Lieutenant jg, lieutenant, Lieutenant Commander, Commander.

Picard was a captain by 27, and Riker was 27 and a Commander in the TNG pilot, of course Riker probably got a "shut the fuck up" promotion after Pegasus.

Although, since neither Cavit nor Chuckles were full commanders, Voyager does not need a full commander for the xo job, nor would a full commander feel fulfilled from being Voyagers XO.

Ipsofacto... Any meteoric service that deserved the promotion to full commander would also mean to a transfer to a loftier position on more difficult and challenging command... even if Commander Bartlett was cruising the halls looking for trouble.
