Tactical Systems

And further with that, then - you realize that Tactical and Engineering are part of Operations, right?

Perverted notion? Um...everything tactical?

I know that folks like to harp on the public school system, but did you even try to read what I said?

Go look at your toon's skills, those are the three categories. It is what it is.

As for the Tac and Eng being part of Operations?

http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Starfleet_division

Command, Operations, and Sciences

So you click on Operations...

http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Operations_division

...and you see:

"Operations officers included engineers, security and tactical, and some service specializations such as communications."

Something that's Operations could be Tac or Eng, and since they include Operations with Sci, it could be part of Sci as well...

I'm not even sure where to start in trying to reply to that...your reply to that part reminds me of that old joke, the one that goes something like - don't you hate when somebody starts to say something, and right when they start to get to octopus....
