All my Bridge Officers are currently Ensigns and everytime I level up I get to train them in a new skill but I cant get them to use these skills as they are not currently that rank. e.g my science officer currently has Tachyon Beam I and although I have trained him in Tachyon Beam II (a Lieutenant skill) I cant get him to use it as hes not a Lieutenant, so how do I make him a Lieutenant?

Select the BOFF, and then click Skill Tab. After Training at least 3 levels on each item, go back to Status Screen, and at Bottom Center is a Drop Arrow that allows Promotions. Training 3 on each successive item allows the next Promotion.

you need to first place points in their skill boxes under the skills tab. then go to the main Boff front page, select career options and promote.

Each ship has a set number of stations for Boffs

Science, Engineering and Tactical.

The higher the ship's tier the more stations/higher level stations you get.

Cruisers usually have more/higher level Engineering stations
Escorts usually have more/higher level Tactical stations
and Science usually has more Science stations.
e.g.
A tier 2 (Lt Cmdr) Escort ship has
Lt Tac (2 powers)
Ensign Tac (1 power)
Ensign Sci (1 power)
Ensign Eng (1 power)

Also no officer can have a rank greater than nor equal to your own.

You have to be in the right ship in order to use it. IE, your ship has to have a Lt science station. If your ship only has an ensign science station, you can't use any Lt science abilities.

Use this chart. It will show you what stations are available on all ships. It is IMO the best ship chart available:

and on the extremely high tier 5 ships (other than science ships) you generally have a maximum of a LT science officer.

The BOFF's can not use all of the things they can be trained in unless the Seat on your ship allows to have 4 Abilities usable. On Ground, They can use all they are trained for.
