Commander Kira wasn't aware of this. Though I like how the first thing Starfleet did to her was effectively demote her when she was going out of her way to take a special mission for them. The naval equivalent of colonel is a captain.
Kira was a major, then was promoted. The next step is Lieutenant Colonel, which is indeed the equivalent of Commander. And LTCOLs can often be just called Colonel.
Except she never was not once referred to as Lieutenant Colonel.
Chakotay was never referred to as Lieutenant Commander, yet he replaced one, and he wore the rank of one.
