naval tradition means nothing to me as this is set 400 years in the future. ive never been a fan of people using the navy as an example of how starfleet should structure its ranks.
its true they did use commodore and while its possible just because no ones said during tng/ds9 does not automatically mean its been discontinued, its is largely accepted to have been phased out, especially considering its never been used in this game, and the current setting should probably be the deciding factor.
i would not use it.
my suggestion would be Fleet Captain as it sounds better to me and does not need any explanation. its is an equivalent rank to commodore and i also believe its is used in a temporary capacity rather than an official promotion. basically it does the job and sounds logical for the situation.
