This may have been mentioned but can cryptic please add roles or titles to the Bridge officers, that not only can be seen on their status and above their heads, like our titles, but also affect their position in the ships interiors.

So for example their could be a list something like this;

First Officer
Councillor
Ships Pilot/Helm
Chief Engineer
Engineering Officer
Transporter Chief
Weapons/Tactical Officer
Chief Science Officer
Science personnel
Security Chief
Security personnel
Ships Doctor
Medic
Communications officer

These titles are optional so you don't have to assign all of them if you don't want to and some can only be used once (like ships doctor), whilst others like Engineering Officer can be used by multiple BO's.

Also the title will determine where they are on the ship (more important when ships interiors come into it) so the helm officer will always sit in the pilots chair, the ships doctor will always be in the sickbay or the communications officer will always be the one who pops up when your in space to tell you someone's hailing you etc etc.

Or give us the option to move the bridge crew around the stations if they are not sitting in the correct place. add a new screen like the assignment screen but show us a bridge overlay and let us pick where we want to put them.

To go along with this we would need the ability to designate what each bridge station is.

Not exactly. He is talking only about titles, nothing with skills or actual BO stations (in the assignments screen). It will be the same as changing your Captain's title. If his rank is RA but the title is Tal'Shiar's most wanted, does that change his skills in anyway? No its just a title. The additional suggestion is that these titles will determine their location on the ship when interiors are released.

Actually, since the OP uses the example of having the Helmsman sitting at the Helm console, we should be able to designate which console is the Helm. Or Ops. Or Tactical. Or Science. Or anything else.

Hold on, I think we are talking about 2 different things. I'm talking about the BO consoles on the assignment screen, where you put "this" officer into the Lieutenant Science slot, or "that" officer into the Commander Tactical Slot, etc.

If I am understanding correctly you are talking about the actual stations on the actual bridge. Where the BOs sit/stand.

The OP was, as I understand it, referring to where the BO stands/sits. As am I.

If you are going to give someone the title of Operations Officer and you want him to sit at the Ops console, you should be able to designate which console on your Bridge is the Ops console.

You may want to check this thread out (and give it a "bump" to show your support): First Officers - An Idea for Implementing Them In-Game

It covers both XOs and other Senior Staff Officers.

You know what would be nice? Having helmsman BO powers. Have evasive manuevers / ramming speed and some new powers tied to it, separate from Tactical.
