Re: Is 'Woman In Cafeteria' Janice Rand, or not?

As others have said, I agree it's Rand. That's the only way the reaction makes much sense.

Regarding the two uniforms, I think we have to assume that the two uniforms are potentially interchangeable - not unlike what we saw with the TNG/DS9 uniforms for a while.

Regarding Rand's changing rank, we might want to assume that one rank is actually her "correct" rank and others are a mistake. I think it's generally assumed that she was enlisted, but given her position aboard the Excelsior, I believe I'd like to think she went back to the Academy at some point pre-TSFS thus qualifying her for officer ranks.

It also depends how much time you put bewteen TMP and TWOK, doesn't it?
