"command" I see as different from when someone says "captained." I see captained as it is your ship your crew. You are not babysitting the ship. I never thought it was clear with the Defiant whose ship that was. Sisko was supposed to be in command, yet word lived on the ship and not DS9 and would readily take it out. But then Jadzia (a science officer) is in command of it during the Dominion war. It seemed like anyone could just take it out when they wanted and man it with who ever was around. Like when the tailor dude would go on missions with them and there he'd be at a station punching buttons.
