Multiple BO abilities
 
So I have a question. When I rank my Bridge officers up and they get their next set of abilities.. If say my BO has Tractor Beam I and Emergency Power To Shields II, will I be able to use both abilities? Or only the latest?

It depends on the ship you are using. For instance, if your BO is a LT, but the type of station on the ship you have is onl y an Ensign station... he only gets to use his Ensign ability.

Go to shipyard second floor. Check the ship descriptions. Each ship description explains how many officers of which rank you can use on that specific ship. For example Escort Ship has 1 Ensing Science station, 1 Ensing Engineer Station, 1 Lieutenant tactical station and 1 Ensing tactical station.

Which means that on that ship you can use:

Ensign Engineer Ability - 1 ability
Ensign Scientist Ability - 1 ability
Ensing Tactical ability, Lieutenant tactical ability - 2 abilities

Thank you for the information but another question then. If say I have Torpedo High Yield as my first ability and Torpedo High Yield II. Would that mean I can go "Torpedo High Yield I", it goes on cool down and in five seconds immediately use number 2? Or is this not beneficial and they both share the same cooldown?

I'd like to see someone else confirm, but I think the answer is no.
The reason is I know the Emergency Power to X abilities put eachother on cooldown... so I would assume the same in this case.

The Escort has 2 Tac stations. 1 Ensign, 1 Lt.
The LT station lets you use both Ensign and Lt abilities.
So you'd be able to use 3 Tac BO abilities, 2 Ensign and 1 Lt

Usually related abilities have a shared cooldown, but the shared cooldown is shorter than the individual cooldown. So you wouldn't be able to spam THYI right after THYII, but you could get one in sooner than you would've otherwise been able to.
