Starfleet officer has worked for the past 47 years, I say we go with that.
What about all the chiefs, NCOs, and enlisted men and women? They aren't represented in that term. The great thing about the term "sailors" is that it represents every member of a navy, not just the officers. And, it seems very likely that the officers are the minority in Starfleet.
No, we need something better.
Considering Chief O'Brien is the only enlisted man in all Starfleet, this isn't much of an issue.
