You have to spend a certain amount of points to gain in rank, specific skills are not required.

And really with the way the skill cap is there's no reason to buy any ship command skills other than the ones you're going to use... The t3 and t4 ones will help you for about 10 levels before you change ships to one that they don't apply to though :/

The engineering and science skills basically improve the abilities your Bridge Officers use, there are a few that provide other benefits as well, for example warp core training increases the power level of systems at low power settings.

I don't know how all the skills work, and I doubt too many on the forums apart from the devs could tell you how they 'all' work.
