Indeed it is. But I do not trust the developers in this matter, there has been too many "gameplay above logic" decisions already

I too have a captain boff from an old bug, I've tried to replicate it later but no luck.

Unfortunately nothing, he just gets to be one of those BOFF's with a rare rank

The Admiral doesn't displace the commanding officer of the flagship, though he is higher in rank. The CO of the flagship becomes a Flag Captain and generally still carries out everyday command of the vessel.

So all in all yes, we should have the ability to promote BOffs to Captain. I am hoping that whenever the full Admiral rank is available promoting BOffs to Captain will be available as well.
Yeah, but this is space in a new era where some of the old foundations of the miltary are out and a new one is in. In this era, you get to command your ship if you want, and set the uniform codes yourself. I do agree with promoting one first officer to Captain as long as we get to use captain skill slots on your ship, no matter what class.

What I really want is to use the higher skill slots of my BOFFs on any ship I command. Just because I fly a cruiser doesn't mean I should get stuck with using only LT or En slots for my tac officers. There is enough room on the screen for me to use all my BOFFs' abilities.
