However, we don't really need more senior officers. I find it so snobbish that people have been conditioned to think that non-commissioned crew can't contribute to a story (even O'Brien was ret-conned from being a lieutenant). We have a gap for security chief and a female Andorian would be really cool but otherwise Rand can stay a petty officer amd still be a cool character.
Female Andorian security officer, sounds good.

Exactly what I was thinking! Maybe Rosario Dawson is even willing to go blue to fulfill her ambition... although she would also make a smokin' T'Pring.
