Can I transfer Aenar/Caitian BOff from one toon to another?
 
Trying to find out if I can get an Aenar or Caitian BOff now, and then trade it (uncommissioned) to another of my toons later. I get my 300-day Veteran toon slot on Jan 21st but want to take advantage of the sale tonight.

Thank you.

Or, is it bound to the toon I purchase it for, since, if I remember right, that's how it worked for the Lib Borg BO I have. (Then again, I may have tried to trade her after I commissioned her.)

I have bought them on the Exchange, so I assume the answer is yes.

If you commission them then they are bound to the character. If you don't you can trade them or sell them on the Exchange.

Thanks for the answer. :-)

Seeing as they are not reclaimable items, they should be just like any other bridge officer, meaning if they are not commissioned you can do what you want with them and if they are, the only way to transfer them is to trade them to another player and them have him trade back to your alternate character.

I could be wrong about that since I have never tried to trade commissioned bridge officers.

the lib borg BO was never tradeable. but the ones purchased from the Cstore should be tradeable so long as they are uncommissioned, then they become bound i think.

When you buy an Aenar or Caitian boff through the C-Store, you get a Requisition form. That Req form is *not* tradeable.

You can take that Req to the Boff dealer in ESD and claim the boff you want. You can choose any combination of gender and career, so there are six Aenar options and six Caitian options. Having redeemed the Req, you *can* trade the boff you obtain thereby. You can give it away to another player (done this), sell it on Exchange (done this) mail it to someone else (done this) or attach it to a mail message for storage (done this too).

However, when you commission one of these boffs into your bridge crew, they're no longer vendable. However, you can still trade them for training purposes -- you just can't sell them on Exchange any more.

Both Aenar and Caitians have worthwhile ground skills and are, IMO, worthwhile additions to your bridge crew and away team -- at least, they were when they cost 100CP apiece. Now that they're 400CP each, I'd have to rethink that opinion.

So you cannot do face-to-face trading like you can with other commissioned bridge officers?

However, this is a character 'purchase', and not a 'unlock'... If you transfer the BO in question to another character, YOU CANNOT RECLAIM HIM, and will need to make another 'purchase' if want the BO again...
