Tac: 9 abilities. 3 groups for CDs.
Sci: 8 abilities. 7 groups for CDs.
Eng: 5 abilities. 2 groups for CDs (where 4 of the 5 are in the same group).
I hate the layout on the Negh'Var because of this. Because it's not just about the 3 Ensign Eng BOFF slots...it's also about what filling those means for the higher ranked slots.
Eng BOFFs definitely need more Ensign level abilities. Even if they were Ensign only level abilities...it would be great.
edit: Keep in mind the following though...offsetting costs. While Tac and Sci both have more abilities, there are offsetting costs. With Tac, you're looking at weapons mounted and Tac consoles used. With Sci, you're looking at skill build and Sci consoles used. Additional Eng BOFF abilities should have similar offsetting costs.
I'm just another poster on the forums with my own ideas and opinions.
