1. On stowiki (yes I know a lot of the information is outdated) it says that it comes from Gamma Quadrant Duty Officer "Cache". Is that a typo and they ment "Cadre" which would then link it to the C-Store Gamma Quadrant Duty Officer Cadre. Trying to see where I could get one cause the Exchange prices are just ridiculous
2. Can you have 3 on active duty or is it like Warp Core Engineer where you can only have one active? Hoping its 3 cause that would mean you have the potential for a max of 12 Boarding Shuttles in one go! Not even that. Wouldn't want to spend EC or CP to get a 2nd one only to find out that you can only have one active
Not many people use Boarding Party III but in my experience its always helped me out, a lot, especially with tac cubes. It also makes me feel carrier-esque, lol
Note that standard Flight Deck Officers affect hanger recharge time, not add additional shuttles. Only the ultra-rare has the ability to add additional Boarding Parties. The Federation currently only has access to the ultra-rare, though that may change if there is suitable desire and/or need.
