# 1 Promoting Away Team BOffs
02-06-2010, 02:59 PM
I understand that I should promote my Bridge Officers as I get consoles that can accommodate higher ranked BOffs but my question is should I promote BOffs who I don't have consoles for in order to get their extra abilities while on Away Missions?

For example, if I'm captaining a T2 Science Vessel with one lieutenant-rank console, I can see promoting one of my science officers so her lieutenant ability can be used in space. Is it worthwhile or cost-effective to also promote one or two of the other BOffs I normally take down on Away Missions, even if I won't be able to use their space abilities yet?
