I've maxed out Starship Shield Efficiency and Starship Weapon Efficiency, and do not have the option to train my Boffs with the appropriate Emergency power to weapons/shields as the tool tip indicates.

Is this a known bug? I haven't been able to find anything about it on the forums. I can train them with Fire at Will III and another skill which I can't recall while here at work.

You can only train Officers of the same type you are. Since you can train Fire at Will III I assume you're a Tactical Officer, so you will never be able to train Emergency Power to X abilities, as they are Engineering abilities. You'd have to trade them to a friend to have them trained instead.

^ What he said. As a tactical officer you can only train BOs with Tactical skills, ie Canon Rapid Fire III.

Weeeell... To be completely fair there's a quest at the beginning that sends you to an npc which will explain exactly this. And the npc is still talkable to, and will offer the same advice, even after the quest. He's right in front of the BO trainer and the BO store on Earth's Spacedock.

Yes, the game epically fails to mention the distinction and the skills window essentially lies to you.

So that being said how do I "TRADE" a boff to a friend to train them? I can't even move them to my inventory now?

Correct. The only way to get Emergency Power to X III would be to find a rare BOFF that has the skill, and when you select him, tell him to train one of your BOFFs in that skill. Hopefully in the future they will add a way to trade activated BOFFs, as you can currently only trade ones that are waiting in your assignments tab.

Unless you are just talking about training the abilities you unlock via maxing certain skills, this isn't correct.

I have trained all my BOs how I want them. I'm Tactical and I can train my Science and Engineering officers via the npc on Earth Dock.

If I'm missing a detail do let me know.
