As a Romulan Tactical captain I cannot train my BOFFs. I have put 6 points in Starship Energy Weapons (should unlock FAW3 & CRF3) and 6 points in Grenades (should unlock Photon Grenade 3 & Stun Grenade 1). However the button "Train Officer" stays greyed out, as well as the "Train" option on the BOFF menu. This was submitted as bug id #36,892.
Do you have an allied boff of the right job that you've tried to train? I wonder if this is related to all the other boff flags that haven't been set for that initial set of Romulan boffs - stay in station, set department heads, show ground combat ability, purchase(!) - or maybe it's due to that they're distinct characters in the storyline, and are fixed.
I can train them just fine by going to the BOFF trainer on New Romulus. However I cannot train any of my captain abilities (the ones that the BOFF trainer can't train, like FAW3). When you open the status window and select your captain, there is a button "Train Officer", which is disabled.
I even went as far as replacing one officer with a Gorn Engineer and he could not train in the Flotilla .. on the other hand the Romulan BOffs could not train in Qo'Nos. which i think is intentional right now however i could do the path to 2409 daily in the Klingon Academy for 2 data chips. I reached level 30 and since the D'Deridex is still locked i loaded up my Kamarang with mark 7 gear that i could get my hands on and went to town.. was even awarded a purple quality Reman engineering boff named ENGINEERING OFFICER,
SHE HAD NO EYES
just sad mothball placeholders
she worked just fine though
one other small bug.. on my Kamarang Bridge.. there were none of my BOFFS.. just klink stand ins.. can i get a stick up or a air freshener pine tree for my viewscreen so my BOFFS get back to the bridge..
