As an Ensign he was an officer and certainly did command crewmen under his rank.

and interestingly did not cheat the same way (seduction and corruption of impressionable women)
We have absolutely no idea how Shatner's Kirk got access to the computers to reprogram the test. Knowing Kirk seduction probably had something to do with it, though.

holodeck programs are NOT hard canon (otherwise captain proton is canon)
and as the final episode revealed it was a reg barclay holonovel
none of its actually very solid is it
The holodeck makes assumptions based on actual events. Every moment of the crew's life is not recorded. The Starfleet records tell people that Archer and his crew did X on Stardate Y. It does not tell us what each crew member was talking about, who they were dating, or what they were eating during those events. The holodeck makes up all the details which have nothing to do with the actual records. This is why Leah Brahms was so different in the holodeck simulation Geordi ran than in real life.

What the crew were saying to Chef is largely fabricated - unless someone put said conversation in an official record. The fact that the NX existed or that Tripp died during a specific mission is fact.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.
