Ok, so from what i've read, the only way to train a bridge officer special abilities like high yield torpedo III or cannon rapid fire III is to also be a tactical officer.

I decided to play an engineering captain flying escort ships for the balance of attack and defense, but I wasn't aware that i can't train my bridge officers these abilities.

(thanks for explaining it, cryptic!)

My question is, am I just **** out of luck? Is there nothing I can do to attain these bridge officer abilities now? I know I chose an "off" class for my ship, but I wasn't aware i'd be losing these unlockable abilities as well. If that's the case, then I don't think it was worth it. I can't use any engineering special abilities - escorts don't have slots for lt. cmdr or higher of engineering or science officers. So that's out.

It just doesn't seem right. This feels like a penalty to mixed-class ships, which would compel most players to play straight tactical/escort, engineering/cruiser, or science/science. And that just seems unlikely.

Cryptic said, that you have a chance of getting those abilites on the blue BOs.
Problem is, blue tactical BOs I have seen sofar only have 2nd lvl abilities, and I had 1 BO with target subsystem 3.

So getting a BO with high yield 3 or rapid fire 3 as an engineer or science is like winning the lottery.
As high yield 2 is not trainable at spacedock, you are stuck with high yield 1.

Can always keep your eye on the exchange for BO's with those skills. That's pretty much your only option I believe.

So no you're not SOL, just gonna hve to pay a pretty penny for a BO with those skills so you can use em to train your BO.
