After you have your friend upgrade, how long does it take to get the holographic officer?
After they buy the game and enter their code (become "Upgraded"), you have to wait 1 month. Once they pay for their first month's subscription you get the rest of your Referral prizes, including the HoloBO. For more details check out: http://www.startrekonline.com/referral.
Since I have a photonic officer, I'll answer these.
It is male only
No, you cannot customize it other than it's name. Tailer's just don't know how to customize that mobile emiter.
Yes, most noticable trait is the Photonic Lifeform. It gains natural resistance to physical and kinetic damage but is very weak to tetryon damage. It also cannot substain injuries; so if your playing on advance or elite, send this officer out to the slaughter. Oh, and when it is KOed, it turns into a holoemiter on the ground that you need to 'boot up'
Also worth note, it comes with Photonic Officer III BO space skill.
Are there any details available on the Holographic Bridge Officer from the friend referral program? Is it an engineer, science, or tactical officer? Does it have any specific or unique traits and/or skills? Is it a specific race or gender? Can the look be customized at all? Any screenshots available?
It is science officer , it looks like a regular officer, ya cant change its uniform, the space abilities are much, but the ground abilities do great at healing hope this helps
If you mean Photonic Officer, in the simplest terms it speeds-up the recharge of other BO abilities. The in-game effect is that your BO splits himself into multiple BOs and helps the others complete their tasks quicker.
