Romulan Operative on BOFF slots
 
I've got some new BOFF characters with Romulan Operative and wondered - if I add them to my ship on several empty BOFF slots but do not assign them to a station, will I still get their bonus abilities (such as the 1.5% crit bonus) applied to my character?

Basically, do they need to be assigned to Tactical/Security to use their Rom Operative bonuses or is just being assigned to my ship as BOFF's sufficient?

They need to be assigned to a ship BOff slot to have their ability work

on the ship you have bridge stations.... at lvl 50 ships get 4-5 depending on the ship.

this is where the boffs go to activate space traits like operative.


if you can use their "powers" in space that Boff trait is active.

if it's not assigned to a ship's station it's NOT active.

Ah thank you. That is such a shame. I've built a crew of characters who are all custom designed, complete with bios, etc and I know I sound soppy but I really don't want to swap them out for a bunch of faceless Romulans I can't even customise. Kind of breaks the immersion turning my crew practically all Romulan for a power creep bonus.

If I could have them as BOFF's but not assigned to a station for the perk, it would be a different matter.
