I removed the following speculation from the Background section:
- Another explanation could be that the crew manifest was deliberately falsified in order to disturb aliens who tries to scan the database or board the ship, which could explain the use of the people on the dedication plaque with ranks that obviously are doubtful.

Due to her high rank, we must assume that she wasn't aboard the ship when it was stranded in the Delta Quadrant. She may have been assigned aboard during the test phase of the ship like Cmdr. Brannon Braga and Cmdr. Rick Berman who were also listed on the dedication plaque.
