The -rank- is just a skill level so they can use the consoles. I've ranked up boffs, but the rank I have on the boffs uniform is what I consider them by. Example using TNG.. Worf was a LT most of the time, he had COM level tactical skills for sure though. Geordi was also a LT for a good while, eventually a LTCom but in game he would have COM skills.
The rank you pin on your guys and the rank that you need to set them at for game skill use don't have to be the same thing. I've only got 2 BOFFs pinned with COM, the rest wear ranks from ensign to LTCom based on how I want them to be. Use some imagination and the tailor and make your crew ranks fit how you want them to. Nothing needs to change since you can already customize them.
