Here are the actual rules.

You need to spend your lieutenant skill points to reach lieutenant commander. That means, if you spend equally on everything then you will have 1 skill at 7 and the rest at 6 when lieutenant commander skills unlock.

There are some skills that unlock special abilities, but not at the Lieutenant level. The earliest available skills that unlock abilities are Lieutenant Commander level. Also, since you need to need to train a bridge officer to use an ability, and have a sufficiently high enough ranked officer station to use it in your ship, a lot of this is not something you need to worry about until late in the game.
