oh for the love of...

Well, with the game being F2P, a third party is a web-form away...

But still, a wholly unnecessary inconvenience.

Interaction in an MMO? Unthinkable!

But I have to agree to a certain point.
Currently it's not much more than a nuisance.

I'd prefer it if the devs would make up their mind between having unique skills only available to a certain profession (or store item), or generally available skills.

The current implementation is inconsequent, thus potentially annoying.

I would like to get rid of BOff only skills for pretty much the same reason - time and hassle. It takes a lot of time to farm the money to pay the insanely outrageous price some demand for BOffs on the Exchange. All skills for everyone at the same vendor so no one wastes what might be valuable to them as an individual and others with great luck dont unfairly benefit but what do I know....

Let us just say I have three captains at VA with the names Trainer T, Trainer E, and Trainer S precisely because of this stupid silly system. And it doesn't even help with the growing number of desireable bound boffs.

This system adds nothing of value to the game especially when you factor in the annoyance factor that it does add. It reminds me of most bad forms of DRM, doing nothing but irritating me.

In the past the defense was 'it promotes social activity and fleet bonding'. We have a grind for social activity now this system has now outlived any meager benefit it never actually added.

It's not a whine.

It's a legitimate complaint to an archaic system which serves no purpose at all in STO anno 2013. But then again we've been saying this for over a year now, and Dstalh has yet to do anything about it.
