I always considered a second officer etc. is just appointed by the captain. Picard had Data as second officer. But could of appointed Troi that. Since she did have the highest rank for bridge officers (minus Riker). Crusher is not a primary bridge officer.

I wouldn't call Troi a primary bridge officer either.

Do remember that both of them would have advanced degrees to hold the positions that they're in. That alone would give them extra rank I would think.

edit: My vote would be whoever held Tac or whoever held Engineering, depending on the season. I know in ToS, it seemed to flip back and forth between Scotty and Sulu and both of them were seen to hold the bridge when Kirk and Spock were gone.

Is second officer even a formal position? There is a hierarchy of command, but the second down in the chain doesn't normally have formal duties in the same way a first officer does.

Its like asking who is the vice vice president, or greeting someone by the title of vice vice president. It isn't done.

Since the npcs are not true AI's, even the 1st officer position is there only for show. Its not like the 1st officer runs about doing things on their own.....

Well if the First Officer and others beamed down, we wouldn't be playing Captain.
