I think you've got some major misconceptions going on here.

The type of ship that you fly (Cruiser, Escort, Science Vessel) is not tied to what type of captain you are (Engineering, Tactical, Science). You can fly any combination of ship with any type of captain.

I assume that you mean "Attack Pattern Alpha 1", which is a skill that you receive at Lt 8 as a tactical captain. You can use this in whatever type of ship you choose to fly. Leveling up skills in for a particular type of ship only improves your ship's stats and handling for that particular ship (For example, maxing out Escorts has no impact on how well you fly a Cruiser, Science Vessel, or even the other types of Escorts, such as a Fleet Escort).
