# 1 Expansion of Bridge Officers
08-08-2010, 05:42 PM
Many great suggestions have come from players and devs regarding expansion of bridge officers. One thing I'd love to see is an expansion of their functionality. Many times while on an away mission I feel like I as the captain am doing everything and the BOFFs are standing around until it comes to combat.

Perhaps we could have the ability to issue non-combat orders to our BOFFs, such as asking them to scan the area for lifeforms or for atmospheric content, or scan something specific in the environment. Tactical officers could be given orders to secure the area, which would cause them to patrol the immediate vicinity of the away team. Eng officers could analyze and repair items or damaged parts of a boarded ship...etc etc.

Would also like to be able to issue an emote command to a BOFF, it would be an awesome roleplaying tool.
