Rank is what you choose to display on your uniform - not what Cryptic displays as a icon next to your name at the top of the screen.
Heck, my tactical admiral weird alien thing flipped uniforms into a human female science officer. I role played that this was the alien shape shifting into the form of her deceased foster mother whom she cherishes and being 'human' made her less scarey to those around her.
My crew were all promoted to commander to get the skills yet they are not all commander. My first officer and medical officer are but the rest are a mixture of chief to lieutenant commander if you look at their uniform.
You must use your imagination and you do even though you don't know you are such as did you destroy the dooms day weapon and become a hero or did every single other player do it also?
TLDR: Your character is what you make of it. If you don't want your admiral to do trivial tasks then flip uniforms and role play as a junior officer ordered to do it by the admiral and have fun.
Well that's really a nice idea. My first officer (the Vulcan on my avatar pic) is also my only alt so when I feel like sending my First Officer to a mission I switch to that character.
But the more I think about your idea the more I like it. Besides the fact that my "second" Officer will still have the same name it's worth a try.
At the end it's all about your imagination.
