# 1 Trying to use a new officer
09-11-2012, 12:24 PM
Hello everyone;

I was lucky enough to get a Thollian Tac officer out of a lock box (flexable fellow, it would seem) but can't figure out how to deploy him. I find him in the Invintory, click 'use', then go to the Bridge Officer screen and don't see him. Any advice on what I am doing wrong?

Thanks for the help.

Is he a Duty Officer, not a Bridge Officer?

He's a duty officer. Click the icon next to the stores and queues under the minimap to access the doff system.

Doffs are basically equippable passive bonuses (the Tholians are all warfare experts, meaning they increase damage vs. specific races). In the doff system your active space and active ground rosters give you 5 slots each to equip them.

They're also used for a very extensive dispatch mission system that includes a number of progression paths. There's a number of unique items buried in the system, as well as being a major source of many resources used in the starbase system.

Doffs never appear as a direct character, just their personnel files in the doff UI.

I've had the same problem with this DOFF recently. On my main character I've gotten several Tholian DOFFs so I put one in my account bank to send to another toon. but the new toon cannot "use" it nothing happens. It was not bound. It is just no longer available to 'use'.

The duty officer system is only available after you reach a certain level. You won't be able to "use" the Doff until your character reaches the appropriate level.

You can start using DOFFs at Level 7.

The Tholian DOffs are faction specific. If a Fed Toon opened one, the DOff cannot be slotted on a KDF toon.
