Re: Commander Kirk

Position is more important than rank in Starfleet (with the latter more of an afterthought, IMO), just like how Chekov became chief engineer as an ensign even though there were probably full lieutenants under his command during that time.

I think that had things gone differently, later on Pike may have returned to a captain's uniform and Kirk's uniform would have commander's insignia. But as things happened very quickly with Kh--John Harrison, there wasn't time for new uniforms. Heck, Kirk didn't even have time to get into a proper uniform until after everything was settled in Star Trek XI.
