Photonic MACO Reinforcement Bridge Officer
 
Ok I gambled to get the token store maco bridge officer...I have him equipped with omega XII gear...I could not get him to remod his gun untill I went into my replicator and made a remodeulator even then when he gets incapacitated he gets injuries and 99% of the time when he is incapacitated his body goes invisible .... really he needs three Borg remodes...for it to work....does anyone else have this problem to? Please let me know.

Boffs in general are to stupid to use the integrated remodulator of the sets.
Him going invisible is the same with all other holographic doffs, they are shutdown and reduced to their mobile emitter, which is a serious pain to locate.

Can't say he is not effective on the ground, plus he looks nifty.

Im afraid if I had a hologram in the crew I would want to name him Arnold Judas Rimmer

This is an ongoing issue with boffs.

Boffs dont use most items correctly/efficiently in general, its not just the photonics. Dont bother giving them hortas, they wont use them. If you give them hypos/batteries, expect them to use them willy nilly. The last goes with the devidian cane and phasing device as well. They dont even use hand to hand weapons reliably.

Bottom line is that Boffs ai's are marginal at best, thats why even if it was allowed to use your boffs on ground STF's, you would still fail miserably. IMO.

I didn't even need him. I just got him cause he looks cool. :smile:

It sounds as though one of the core beefs here is a technical issue that we've been attempting to find a solution for: Boffs can't use set abilities. If you give them a 2- or 3-piece ground set, they are incapable of activating any powers they are granted by that equipment. Not just "too dumb" but actually, technically, incapable.

So, buyer beware, I suppose. Until we can find a technical solution, it may not be the best idea to put Set Gear on any Boff. At least not for set bonuses.

Do they benefit from set passives?

I swear I saw the Jemmie shroud work...
