O/T I think there was to be a Captain of engineering with whoever sat in the chair being a Commodore at least...
There wasn't going to be a Captain of Engineering per say. In TSFS, Scotty was ordered to report to the Excelsior as Captain of Engineering. But lets examine the evidence, Scotty was wearing Commanders Insignia in that scene, when we next see him on the Excelsior he is wearing Captain's Insignia.

So it was more likley he was being promoted to Captain and reassigned as Chief Engineer of the Excelsior. Who knows following the shakedown crusie he might have been reassigned elsewhere and a new CEO assigned with a rank of Lt. Cmdr or Cmdr.
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
