Yes, the borg suddenly up an leaving is kind of odd, but frankly it makes more sense that you are accidentally thrown into command, then thrown in automatically.

This is one of the reasons I never skip the tutorial no matter how many new characters I create. The tutorial never says how long you have been an ensign, so the mid-level is more the players guess, then hard fact. but it makes more sense then skipping the Tutorial, where you are definitely a new ensign, fresh off the academy graduation and just given command.
This would mean that you earn command vs. ending up with command as a matter of convenience. As to mid level, I only meant that you're important enough to be sent on an away team, but not important enough to be a member of the senior staff. I had thought that it might be cool if the Khitomer was actually a random ship name, but not important.
