First Officers
 
From the newest Ask Cryptic:

Quote:

Q: Diceberg Why can't I as captain have at lest one universal BO station on each ship?
A: Once we get the feature completed, our intention is that you will be able to select one of your experienced Bridge Officers and promote them to First Officer. A First Officer then opens up the universal slot on your ship (that they sit in), opening up the seat that they normally took for another officer. So we plan to do this just, however the "universal" slot is really you deciding which of your officers you want to be "First Officer" and they become the extra slot. We've scheduled this to be functional before Season 5 launch.
can you say MVAM w/ extra sci BO slots? I'll take one plz

Or intrepids made tougher with extra engineering slots? :drool:

It's like the concept of balance is completely lost on them....

The full universal slot Enterprise-F idea is just as bad.

Unbelievable. I would say more --a lot more-- much more fervently, but it would just get moderated anyway.

Q: farscape-one The new Enterprise class ship - it would be nice to have all universal bridge officers like the Klingond so anyone (class) could fly it.
A: Great suggestion! I'll talk to the ship design team about this to see if they'll consider it. It may be that we could at least offer different "flavors" of the ship to different classes, if not make it universal.
I can see where they're going with this.

1. They have a lot more Fed customers to cater to
1a. More importantly, they have a lot more Fed PvE customers than PvP ones

I for one would love to see Cryptic roll out an All-universal slot T6 Enterprise-F ship with:
1. Cruiser HP
2. 4 eng / 4 sci / 4 tac consoles (hey, it's the Enterprise after all!)
3. New Peregrine Fighters that can be used as devices
3a. Have Ent-F be able to equip 4 stacks of these fighters so they can launch 12 fighters (3 x 4 eh?)
4. Have the power bonus be +10 to each subsystem (biggest warp core yet = biggest power)

The only game balance that matters is the game company's financial balance sheets

Does that mean one extra universal slot, or that the first officer will replace one current slot for something else ?

All I can say is I hope Season 5 hits the same week as TOR... it will make leaving so much easier.

Well if it means each ship will get extra uni .cmd slot, than there is no reason to play anything else than escort or bop :p

Imagine extra sci cmd. slot for the MVAE....who needs science ships ? :o

If it would mean, we could change our current cmd. slot to something else...well then it would be somewhat interesting, except that BoPs would get the short stick.
