Picard (pretty much the figurehead for touchy feely federation diplomacy) had long standing after affects from his assimilation, and he was still in charge of the federation flagship. When Borg issues came up though, starfleet attempted to bench him.

During a time of war,standards go even lower. I've seen klingons, orions, and at least one cardassian roleplaying as members of starfleet (which has always had exceptions to the rules anyways),so there's plenty of canon deviations beyond what name floats above some video game characters head.
