For a ground trait do not forget to grab Strike Team Specialist.

As for the other traits you may have hit the "Details" button on them and take a look. See which traits would best suit your needs. Obviously if they give buffs to things you do not use then they do not help. You may well be able to skill into a few more ground based things now.
Thank ya for responding so promptly Hasukurobi! Love that panther avatar you've got too! Though, my wee wanna be big-cat would surely appreciate it, even more so.

First question I've got here: are Leadership and Teamwork utterly gone? Or have those two traits been somehow melded into the innate Human traits?

Great advice on Crippling Fire and Elusive, as those are two I've been leaning towards. I've also been leaning towards Techie too. Unlike most Tac/Escort flying officers, I prefer to balance defense and offense, rather than aim for pure offensive DPS. I strictly play PVE (including STFs) and I'm also one of those weird Fed Tacs that occasionally likes to fly a Cruiser, rather than an Escort. Big reason why I prefer my Armitage most of all, I guess, as it's always felt like a good middle-ground between an Escort and Cruiser to me.

As for Ground traits...hmm...let's see...lots of options there. I've never had any of the MACO or OMEGA ground stuff. Bit of a mix and mash with my ground equipment really. I have taken a preference for my Sonic Antiproton Rifle Mk XII [KB3] [Sonic], as my weapon of choice for ground missions. And I've got all the top ground Tac kits (as far as I know, barring the new Fleet stuff, as I'm not yet in a Fleet). Currently using Tactical Kit- Squad Leader Mk X (Very Rare Kit).

So, for Ground, I would think that Soldier would be a given. What else do ya guys think I ought choose?
