If I dismiss an officer? Please read my question
 
If I dismiss an officer, or I remove 1 of his skills that already contains full attribute points, and say for example I was an Admiral/General with maximum spent points. Would I still be able to earn Skill Points for the new officer, spite the fact my main character was maxed out Skill points?

I'm certainly not the authority but it was my understanding that we would still be earning Boff skill points once we reach the skill cap.

Boff's are always below you in rank so they can't be skill capped, and they are a sort of "talent tree", to use something from another game, that allow you to diversify your character so again it makes no sense to skill cap them when you reach Admiral.

I'm hoping this to be so... I'm certain I'll make some mistakes during officer training.

Can no 1 confirm this without certainty?

Currently sitting at Admiral 5. I can confirm at max level you continue to earn Bridge Officer Points in the same way you did previously (sporadically from kills on ground, and from quests). Additionally, every previous source of Skill Points now awards 1:1 Bridge Officer points instead.

So for example, doing the Defend the Sector Block mission that awarded 200 SP and 200 BO points under cap, now awards 400 BO points.
