Decker WOULD have done better than Chekov at fooling Sybok into thinking he was captain.
No doubt, since he actually was a captain and not just pretending to buy Kirk time. Better yet, Decker might have been leading the away team instead of Kirk, so Kirk could have talked to Sybok himself while Chekov stayed at the navigator station.

Ah, Chekov. He wasn't exactly brilliant *before* the eel chewed his brain.

As lame as his attempt was... what's it say of Sybok that he was fooled by it?

Honestly? Probably nothing. Sybok certainly knew of Starfleet, but it's not a given he'd have known how to recognize individual rank insignia. As a rule, Starfleet officers don't lie. He had no reason not to take Chekov at his word. As Sybok had been wandering the galaxy for several years, it's not surprising that he had no idea who Kirk was until the latter introduced himself (using his typical leadership by arrogance approach).
