Question: In this episode, the computer says that Spock's rank is Lieutenant Commander. If he is First Officer of the ship, wouldn't he be a full Commander?
Chosen answer: Rank and position aren't directly correlated. An officer may be promoted to a higher rank, but maintain his/her current position. And an officer may be assigned new duties without a promotion. Spock is eventually promoted to full commander, but it isn't a requirement for the job.

Gene Roddenberry created the transporter as an easier (and cheaper) way of getting Enterprise crew members onto a planet's surface, rather than landing the ship on the planet.
