I agree we need an XO. I'm a big RPer and really can't see how my ship runs without an xo. I mean look at all the different series and all the times that the XO was put in charge in a very difficult situation because the CO was in someway unable to command. As for how to do this. I think it should happen at the capt rank and you should promote a BO to XO. I agree this should be given it's own spot on the bridge. Thus freeing up a BO spot although it wouldn't really free up a BO spot so much as ADD a XO spot. Also it should be a universal spot. An XO although better in thier given field then others are still like a capt expected to be a sort of jack of all trades. They are responsible for the ship and best know the workings of that ship in and out like the CO does. Once you are given an XO slot and promote a BO to XO the XO should then be given some specific abilities. Just my two cents that are inline with other people I know.
P.S. I know this post was redudent but I'm waiting for m imac to show up so I can actually play the game.
