No, they should just remove the profession restriction, since it doesn't make any sense at all.
If I am an expert in Adobe Photoshop, I can train anyone in Adobe Photoshop, even if I am not a professional graphic designer or photographer. If I am an expert in doing brake jobs on a car, then I can train anyone to do brake jobs on a car, even if I know nothing else about car mechanics.
So why should my Engineer captain who has HYT III not be able to train a BO in it?!
Exactly. I think its pretty stupid myself. I got rid of fire at will 1 partly because I couldnt train my tact with III, which I have the required 9 points for.
So can we train these rank III skills into the Ensign slot?
If I as a science captain train 9 ranks in whatever lets me train Science Team III, and my science officer has Science Team I as their Ensign skill...can I make that Science Team III? Even in the ensign slot?
