Thank you for the offer though it seems it will not be necessary with TheWackyWombat's confirmation that it does indeed stack (thank you TheWackyWombat).

I am happy to know they stack.

Ah-ha. Low crew could indeed explain this situation. Nice catch.

the tool tip reads (6 max) for the boarding party skill... meaning its capped at 6 shuttles max !!! after testing countless 100's of times with BP 3 and 2 ultra rares u will never get anymore than 6 total board party shuttles in 1 go, tbh if all 6 get to the target and no tac team is used 6 is all u ever need and are effective.... but yeah 6 is the max amount of BP shuttles even if u have 3 ultra rares. 1 or 2 ultra rares is all you need the 3ed is a waste ! having 2 ultra rares active will mean most of the time your hitting 5-6 total shuttles but even 1 will net u 4-5 most times and some times 6 if your lucky.

they stack in the sence that in total u have 66% chance with 2 ultra rares rather than 33% chance of hitting the bonus shuttle proc for each one of the 3 shuttles sent out from BP.

Side Note: Any chance of changing tac team to be chance based to remove BP's or if your target has no crew tac team won't counter boarding party ( as there is no crew to fight them off )

as it stands now 95% of ships run 1 tac team and most escourt pilots run 2 . . . this makes boarding party almost useless on them targets so please make it chance based to remove them ( like chance they may win that fight on deck 15 or a chance they will lose and the boarding party gets to the weapon console to shut it off for the given time ectect Rp.)

just feels sort of a lame I win hard counter to boarding party with tac teams very short cool down/chaining ect.

So what you are saying is that, no, it is not possible to get 9 shuttles from one BP III activation.. So in that sense the 2 purple ultra rare Fed FDOs abilities do not "stack" (which was my question). They only "stack" in the sense that they increase the chance to get the extra 3 shuttles from 33% to 66%.

Thank you for the clarification.

What a bummer.
