Re: Do we take "fanon" too literally?

Well, IIRC, there is a bolian in Starfleet uniform seen in STVI. If they've been serving in Starfleet that long, some of them are bound to have made flag rank by the time of DSN.

And I think the UFP/Starfleet probably judges people by their own merits as far as position/promotion, rather than by origin. Beside which, an individual bolian could have become a citizen of the UFP without his/her homeworld having become a member of the Federation.
