# 1 Bridge Officer space traits?
02-04-2010, 04:47 PM
I saw a BO recently that had the space trait Efficient. I've never seen that before, or any other space trait. The Devs mentioned that BOs would have 4 -ground- traits (might have misspoke), so now I'm confused. Can they get space traits? Do those space traits actually work and add to your ship's space combat abilities?

I've only seen Efficient (and that's on Saurians).

The trait DOES work after today's patch, even on your bridge crew. They have to be manning a station for the bonus to take effect. I tested this out today and can cleary see my power levels change when enough of my Saurians are at their stations (I got 4 Saurians for this reason since the Borg BO is missing it, sigh).

Keep in mind that it's a 5% bonus to Efficiency skills, not +5. And you must also have the skill before you get the bonus from the trait, ex Starship Shield Efficiency (though this is a bug according to a recent dev post about the trait, it should work even if you don't have the skills trained).

Do stock saurians from the store work? Or only some special rare ones or something?

I haven't seen the store ones have it, just the uncommon quality+ ones.

How many of these does it take to get a noticable (IE, 1 power level) difference in power settings? I have myself, and one BO, and noticed no change at all. Does it take 2? 3? 4? 5?

I'm unsure of the formula, but first you need to have at least 1 point in the Starship Efficiency (stat), so you won't see a power increase in shields without the Shield efficiency skill with at least 1 point.

With 1 point of skill in Starship Shield Efficiency:
70/50 power with just myself
70/50 with myself and 1 BO
71/50 with myself and 2 BO
71/50 with myself and 3 BO
72/50 with myself and 4 BO

I believe I noticed with warp core training, the lower the setting is set, the better the bonus. Let me look and try one of the ones I've got training in. Nope. didn't help. So, basically, unless you got an entire crew of them, not going to give much of a bonus.

I truly whish space traits show up on BO’s in the future. It would be really nice to have a Bridge Officer who has traits that help us on the Bridge.

If this is the case, that Space BO abilities work in Space - then shouldn't we all be taking Humans as our BOs? As it could increase our repair rate by 75% without them?

An old but good question! And are human BO:s repair trait stackable and are they also stackable with a human captain?

Edit: And now i hear that the human space trait doesn´t work! Hope they fix it soon!
