The only thing is that starship captains tend to be from the command division (unless it's temporary). They don't have to have originated there, but that's where they wind up when starship command is their ultimate job calling.
Well, yeah, they wind up there because COs and XOs have almost always worn command colors. But below that level, the division colors don't seem to indicate who is qualified to command or who is or can aspire to be on a "command track" career path.
Which goes back to what I just said about they don't have to originate from the command division, but that's where captains eventually end up. I don't recall anyone onscreen wearing a non-command division color serving as the permanent captain of a vessel.
