Getting a new ship (admiral)
 
Ok so i love the Dreadnaught. Normally I did the Escorts but i am wanting something heavier duty that can take more punishment. In reading the stats for the Dread, I find that the two tac positions are manned by flunkies!

1 Ensign Tactical

1 Lieutenant Tactical

An advance warship like the Dreadnaught?


Does this mean I must change two of my tac commanders for an ensign and a Lieutenant?

Im not sure how this works.
i am rather fond of my Second officer who is a tac. She would hate it if I had to replace her with a freaken cadet!

The way I see it you can have the commander in each slot but that particular ship only gets bonuses (or special abilities) for the two officers, one Lieutenant and two Ensign Tactical slots. I think of it more as the abilities of the ship and its design may have more technology weighted in the Engineering side. The Officers (commanders) still have the same skills it is just that ship can't utilize their powers.

If they didn't do it this way all ship would have the same 5 or 6 officers with the same abilities. This makes them all unique IMHO

you can slot your Commanders in there just fine, you will just have the Ensign and Lt.Cmdr. abilities to USE on that ship.

welcome to cruisers who can't have any nice DPS buffing skills.

No. The was that Bridge Stations work is, the highest ranked BOFF abilities that be used is the lower of the BOFF's Rank or the Rank of the Bridge station. That is an Ensign BOFF put at a Commander Brdige Station can only use an Ensign ability. Or a Command BOFF put at an Ensign Bridge station can only use an Ensign ability.
