the fact that no one has so far come to say their borg is working correctly I'm going to guess this is 'working as intended'.
I wouldn't assume that. As much as I and everyone here would like Cryptic to comment on this issue... well there's a plethora of issues they could comment on. It seems dev responses to issues on the forums is spotty and random, so I wouldn't take their silence to mean anything at all.
Given that this was a pre-order bonus, it was not tested in beta at any time that I'm aware of so it could just be a really idiotic oversight on the part of whoever built this bonus.
I noticed now that cryptic has changed the pre order page to reflect the lack of unique skills, all it lists now are the ground and space abilities, nano probes neural blast and efficieny are gone
It still lists those 3 unique skills on their retail page when you click details on Amazon.com... they ADVERTISED those skills when I purchased the item, and they are STILL advertising Nano Probes, Neural Blast, and Efficiency. Just KEEP ENTERING A TICKET FOR IT every time you log on.
All I can say is, WOW (the interjection wow, not the "other" MMORPG), can this launch get any worse? Already re-rolled so I could start from scratch with the Borg BO (AND to claim the BO mission rewards that ANOTHER BUG caused us to lose!), and now I discover that I passed up other cool pre-order bonuses (like the TOS uniforms, Constitution Class ship) in order to get what was advertised as a pretty decent bonus; but turned out to be actually WORSE than a regular Bridge Officer! ARRGGHHH! The body blows just keep on coming. Guess I'll stay out of the game for a few days to see if this gets fixed, cause I'll be darned if I'm going to level ANOTHER character up to Lieutenant Rank 8 (yes, I was THAT close to LtCdr!) just to have to re-roll AGAIN to take advantage of another fix to something that should have been working from the get-go.
