Sounds to me like the OP incorrectly assumes you have to captain the type of ships that matches your character's profession. Any profession can captain any ship of their faction that's available for heir rank. So any Commander in the Federation can captain a Science ship and have a BOff with Viral Matrix 1, which they can train any LtCmdr BOff with at the BOff skills trainer.

Only the level 3 skills, meaning Viral Matrix 3, Revers Shield Polarity 3, Torpedo: High Yield 3, require either full training of the appropriate captain's skill to teach their BOffs, or a rare BOff coming with the skill.

The Level 1 and 2 versions of every skills can be purchased at the Skill Trainer.
