Is it such a surprise that she could have commanded the ship?
After all there is already a precedent:
T'Pol as XO of NX-01 and Kurn as XO of E-D.
Both of them were not Starfleet, but were XOs, so could have (and did) command a Starfleet starship...
You forgot the glorious service of Riker to the Pagh, who was entrusted to defeat the Enterprise.
I also did not include Worf's service on the Rotarran as we are talking about an Starfleet vessel.
The end justifies the means. So do not put canon on a pedestal. We are here to talk Star Trek not only one of its facets.
