# 1 Tactical Bridge Officer ???
09-29-2012, 06:13 PM
Hello! I want to know why all vessels except for the tactical escorts, bridge officers don't have access to their fourth skill. I trained one of my tactical officers with the following skills, skill 1, torpedo spread 1, skill 2, torpedo high yield 2, skill 3, fire beam at will 3, skill 4, dispersal pattern beta 3. But this last skill cannot be used on any vessel except tactical escorts, but that skill is not useful at all since mine launchers are not used on escort ships. would it be possible to add a fourth skill slot to tactical officers on the Odyssey and all tactical cruiser please!

Mine launchers can be used on escorts to good effect. Especially tricobalt ones. Drop it right after you do an alphastrike run, watch the target go boom if it hits just right.

The ship type determines what BOFF abilities you can use. Each Ship Class is designed for a different Class of character. Escorts are Tactical Class ships, and so can use the Tac Commander BOFF slot. Cruisers are Engineering Class ships, and so can use the Eng Commander BOFF slot. Science Vessels are Science Class ships, and so can use the Sci Commander BOFF slot.

The Odyssey is a Cruiser. It's sub-section is Tactical, which is why you get the extra Tac Console slot and Lt Cmdr BOFF ability, but it's still a Cruiser. It's not called and Engineering Escort, it's called a Tactical Cruiser.

Double-posting is considered impolite on any forum on the internet.
Triple-posting within 5 minutes can easily be interpreted as egotism and impatience.
Triple-posting single sentences shows lack of mental cohesion.
Quadra-posting to bump your own thread from #2 .........

The Ody is a Cruiser.
Cruisers are Engineering ships: lots of hull, medium shields, made for tanking.
The Tac ody isn't any different - it just puts a secondary focus on dps abilities.

Why do different ship classes have different BOffs?
Because they're supposed to play different. And have different strengths and weaknesses. Because of gamebalance. Because of diversity.
You can't have everything at once, and especially you can't have the ship with the most hull, very strong shields, and the highest dps.

You seem very much like the type of person who, when he gets a new game, starts it by google'ing for the godmode cheat. Because that's just what you're asking fo..... wait, DEMANDING!
Another sign would be that you bought the biggest and most expensive ship without having a clue what it does.

Now stop bumping this thread, and let it die in shame in some dark corner where it belongs, okay?
