So I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer, so I am posting here....
Assume that you are a LTCDR, you get your tier1 ship, which has your class specific station ranked at Lt.
So you promote your ship class based BO to LT, and gain access to their space ability. YAY Congrats.
My question is, is there any reason why you CAN'T promote ALL of your other BO's, granted you won't be able to utilize their space abilities, but shouldn't you be able to access their land abilities since there is no "console restrictions" on the ground?
