And all of those positions were a sort of semi-retirement status for those involved.
Even Kirk, in the first movie (his first showing as an Admiral) is pulled from a desk job to deal with the situation.... and while commanding the Enterprise...sports Captain's stripes - busting Captain Decker to Commander Decker temporarily.
In the following films he is somewhat forced into command or is rogue, and at the end of all of them....is honored by being 'busted' back to the rank of....you guessed it, Captain.
