    Do any Starfleet members ever serve on civilian ships? (vice versa of Enterprise-D) Under what circumstances?

    Spock: "Planet development is normal, Captain. Originally colonized as a freighting-line base in this area."

    Scott: "Aye, they make regular trips from here carrying supplies to the asteroid belt for the miners and bringing cargo out. I've made the run a couple of times myself as an engineering advisor. "

    While it's possible Scotty was a civilian engineer at the time, he could have already been been in Starfleet.

    What about a long-term service? (like a 6 month stint, say...)
