In one of the interviews about "crafting" (and let's not divert to whether or not the Memory Alpha stuff counts, please) it was said that the BO system was actually the most significant crafting piece. That we would train up officers and be able to trade/sell them to other players.
Has anyone confirmed if this works yet? I tried to trade a BO with a buddy on my bridge and I couldn't figure out how.
Now, we are both still Tier 1 (level 5 and level 8 at the time) so that may have had something to do with it.
Anyone have any insight?
I know that people have posted that players have put BOs on the Exchange, but I don't know if those are "unactivated" from quest rewards or the store.
The appeal of the system, I always thought, was that your character would spend points on skills that they would then be able to train BOs on and other players would find those skills desirable.
