However, there are other tactical ensign skills that interest me, say "Skill Foo". If I go to the bridge officer trainer and buy a new skill for my ensign tactical officer, it says it will replace her existing skill.
So basically if I've invested 5 skill points in her Leg Sweep and I want her to have Skill Foo, that I basically throw away all 5 skill points and she starts Skill Foo at 1? Is Leg Sweep gone forever?
Yeah - If you replace Leg Sweep with Skill Foo, it's gone.
One thing that I haven't seen mentioned yet, is your BO's get more skill slots when they level up (I think I read that they do anyway). So, you might consider waiting to train Skill Foo until the BO is leveled up.
You can't level up a BO to your rank. They have to be one rank below you.
I haven't made it to LCDR yet, so I'm not positive what you need to do to level your BO up.
