Tiers in the Engineering commendation could work for the engineering objectives and tiers in the Military commendation could work for the tactical objective. Might even be possible to have the objectives require a minimum tier like Stranded in Space requires Tier 1 and Mine Enemy requires Tier 2.
I get where you're coming from, but I think it would defeat the purpose of class-based objectives.
Plus imagine what it might be like with Science officers reading dialogue meant for an Engineering officer, for example.
Personally, though, I think missions should be designed around this kind of "Pick Your Path" story line anyway. If I feel like trying the Tactical option as a Science officer I should be able to do that, possibly with some disadvantage.
