I picked up a human female science boff after hitting marauder rank 4 but found her appearance can't be changed. At one point I also got the strange error of "You do not have a bridge officer by that name" when trying to edit appearance from the signup window when she first joined. Does this happen to all klingon cross faction boffs or is this a one of a kind error?

Edit: By can't be changed I mean any changes done in the editor gets reverted instantly. Saving her default costume then reloading and buying it brings up a prompt to buy costumes through the c-store, except no missing costume piece is listed.

You won't be able to alter her uniform, since she is an "Exchange Office". She's still Starfleet. She's just serving on your ship. Like Riker in "A Matter of Honor"

**Edit: Sorry all. Didn't look at the original post date.

Back to the cemetery for this one....
I love nice long walks in the country.
Especially if they're taken by people who annoy me!

Your Necropost was not in vain because just today I got outraged at just this problem and you're misjudging the situation slightly.

There are clothing options at the tailor for such a BOff, however: none of them work, many are missing and many shouldn't be there.
It's a bugfest, altho Cryptic might call it a feature. The BOff might be one, but its uniform is broken and disgusting and has been for ages from what I heard.
The BOff is practically useless and had I known for sure I would have gotten a Human just to have its space ability.

What a great reward for maxing out Marauding. THANKS CRYPTIC.

So there is no fix for this? I just happened to only get around to doing this today and found this problem, googled it, ended up on this topic...

It seems to work fine for my KDF exchange on my Fed. Have an Orion there, edited when I acquired her months ago. Forgot about doing it with my KDF until tonight, can't edit her appearance though. The changes snap back and when I click purchase it tells me I need to buy something from the C-store despite it not saying what and no changes having been made.

Any fix?

if theres a bug on fed, it gets fixed quickly.
if its a but on kdf, it has a 50% 50% chance of never being fixed.

this is one of those who we have informed Cryptic about time and time again, and they ignore, so yeah.

so in summary, the only bugs that get fixed are ones where the mission doesnt work(fall though floor and such, though it still happens on occasion) or ones that involve feds.

another reason few people play KDF, and why a 3rd playable faction is a bad idea. Cryptic just doesnt care.

The Fed side Exchange BOff tailor works just fine ... Just the KDF is Broke.

... and as this is the KDF, it will stay broke.

Its such a irritating bug, we work to get level 4 maurading and get rewarded with a defective boff. bleh

Well, can't you discharge the BOff and get a new one? (for those who want to see the effects [or rather, not see] of the Leadership trait in space)

The old dev /command that used to let us partially costume the KDF faction boff no longer works. In fact, my boff's costume just snapped back to the default.

We've been reminding the Devs of this multiple since the doff system went live. We were told on Jan 16th 2012 "Our top people are on this". >.<

Welcome to the waiting room, sorry we ran outta cookies on Jan 17th, 2012.
I'll stop kicking that horse when the bugs fixed. Until then as a paying consumer, I will voice my opinion.
