I was having the same problem. All you have to do is queue for PvE encounter, as soon as you get into the encounter (before you move an inch) you can put your bridge officers into their stations. Hope that helps you.
Had the same problem of not being able to assign bridge officers when I leveled a new toon. Took them into a idle foundry just to try to get something done with them. Since it also had some targets to shoot I said what the heck and opened fire. After combat ended well waiting for it to end I tried to slot my bridge officers, and boom, it worked. Tried it with another toon that lost bridge officer slots after finishing the 3rd year event mission, worked for them also.
I had the same issue. I had a science toon and an engineering toon that just got to level 50. I initially wasn't able to put bridge officers in their stations, but when I started to play the second wave mission, I was able to slot my bridge officers during the beginning of the mission. I don't know if this can work with all missions because I never tried. That's how I solved the issue for myself, hopefully this can solve others.
This has got to be one of the largest FUBAR, Charilie Foxtrot yet. Even with the work around I cant get a damned thing loaded. Why do we have to do a dog and pony show to get something to work that was already WORKING before all of these so called "updates"?

So what am I suppose to do now? I haven't been able to run ship content for over day because I cannot get any of my Engineers or Sci BoFF to go into ANY ship that I switched after the patch. I have tried everything in this thread...fixed this god damn stupid bug or Its been over 24 hours.
Fixed it after 24 hours by doing a RICH dil daily...yes that was the only map that allowed me to add the BoFF.....stupid
I want to telll everyone the Fleet Starbase is best work around. I have a new ship with and could slot no BO 's tilll dock at our starbase. Many others had same experience. Love spend hunders of millliions on a ship with no BO's
