The alternate active roster abilities include:
?Deflector Officer?Chance to reflect damage while using Polarize Hull

LOL FBP + PH?? I'm going to take a risk and assume it's FBP 1. And it's still based on Aux power.

?Flight Deck Officer (Variant 1) ?Increase Carrier Defense while in Recall Mode

?Flight Deck Officer (Variant 2) ?Increase Fighter Accuracy while in Intercept Mode

?Flight Deck Officer (Variant 3) ?Increase Fighter Damage while in Escort Mode

?Tractor Beam Officer?Drains -10 Engine Subsystem Energy with Tractor Beam Repulsors

?Doctor?Triage and Medical Tricorder can trigger a second heal

?Geologist?Create a Gravity Well effect on ground when using Gravimetric Shift

?Gravimetric Scientist?Create an aftershock Tyken's Rift (same functionality as existing Gravity Well aftershock)

Should have been there in the beginning.

?Nurse/Medic?Increased Crew Recovery when crew is <75%

?Assault Squad Officer?Extra Team Heal and AOE Rez on Rally Cry

?Energy Weapons Officer (Variant 1) ?Reduce recharge time on Cannon Rapid Fire and Cannon Volley

Yay more Overpowered Escort damage!

?Energy Weapons Officer (Variant 2) ?Reduce recharge time on Beam Overload and Fire at Will

Yay more no [Acc] FAW..

?Security Officer?Increase melee Crit Chance and Crit Severity (ground)


In addition to any Duty Officers you receive, you also will get one (1) of the following special bonus prizes:
?A stack of Gamma Quadrant commodities (which will be in high demand with the new Fleet Advancement and Starbase system)
?A stack of Gamma Quadrant consumable devices (new devices based on the Gamma Quadrant commodities)
?An Alien Artifact (available in both "Powered" and "Unpowered" versions)
?A random Mk XII Very Rare Console
?or the jackpot prize? a Tuffli Class Freighter Ship Pack
You think that your beta test was bad?

the advantage of 3 blue or purple new energy weapon officers is a line that shouldn't have been crossed. the active roster, if it wasn't already, is the single most important part of your build. more important then your weapons, more important then your equipment, more important then your consoles. so much for the doff system being in the background, its taken over the actual gameplay, and has invalidated the cooldowns that are the foundation of the space combat system balance. a good active roster might even be more important then skill now.

or a dull ferengi ship

its something Id cheerfully buy and fly

I'm not so sure that's true. I've had the same DOFF layout since maybe rank 35 at most (Rank 50 now, been so for about a month and a half), and since then I've changed ships 3 or so times, and weapons/shields much more than that. I can honestly say the weapons/shields of my ship and the power layout made for a MUCH larger impact on gameplay than any DOFF ability I had.

I find this blog to be a bit humorous... a non-combat ship, possibly OP new Doff powers (are we going to get them in random assignments as well, or only in the Reinforcements pack?), and a chance to "pay-to-win" on getting a Mk XII VR Console (though honestly it's only marginal improvement, PvPers are always trying to squeeze the last drop of performance out of their ships). I prefer this over the prizes from the lockboxes.

Unless the ship is intended to be available in the C-store now or later, it's just using the DOFF packs instead of lockboxes as an online raffle ticket, though it avoids the spam of unopenable (if you don't want to buy keys) boxes, which is a big improvement. It's very cool to hear about the new DOFF powers though.

I'm REALLY likin the new doffs, I'm likin some of the rewards and I'm REALLY pumped about the freighter !

The only thing is, what about lobi crystals ?
I find their omission troubling.
I'm guessing they are now just with the lock boxes ?
So, am I to assume that there will be a lock box event ON TOP of this promotion as well?

I hoping I've got this wrong.

Are there plans to INCREASE these games of chance promotions being offered on the
C store ?

I for one would NOT like to see multiple lock box like events running simultaneously.
