Because I'm at Lt Grade 5 right now, and if I hover over the skill bar, it says my next grade is "Lt Commander 1" - and I don't think that is right at all. So they seem to have some kind of promotion point as you go into level 6, but it isn't correctly coded.
What annoys me is that you have to spend energy credits to correct your rank pips on your uniform - that should be free.
The whole way through the Lt rank it said both my next grade and my next rank were Lt Cmd. I think this is a bug that's new since beta.
Interestingly, I just made Lt Cmdr and went to change the pips on my uniform...and it was free. I don't know if they changed it to make it free, or if I just got lucky with a bug somehow
. It wasn't free to change the pips on my newly promoted BO, though.
