Well, at the risk of fanning the flames to the same old debate cycle again, my take was that Wesley was actually attached to the same part of the service as Stone, Mendez, and Miss Piper, IOW that he came down from Starfleet Command just to lead the task force against the M-5.
I personally think, with no canon to back me up, that Wesley was from Starfleet Command and that M-5 was his "baby". I think its failure and the loss of life because of it was what drove him from the service and why we see him as the governor of the Mantilles colony in TAS.
Oooo, I rather like that.

It's up to personal interpretation, but I do think it makes sense in context of the two times we see the character.

My thinking: If he was just a fellow starship commander, why would he be so gung-ho for these trials? He would be eliminating his own occupation.
