(All equipment on the ship should virtually downgrade to captain level (mk VIII) while they're in command, so they're not too tough.) They'd have no BOs of their own so they'd be limited to their own BO abilities during the fight, and could no longer be used as regular bridge officers, assigned to consoles on your ship, unless you demote them back (not presently possible).
I am in support of this idea too. It justifys keeping the lower level ships that a player used getting to that rank. Besides, I like the thought of commanding a mini fleet.
