I'm an admiral, I can't promote my bridge officers to Captain.
If it's lore reasons, or whatever, fine, they can all stay commanders.
My issue is, I have 9 points in photonic theory in order to get Photonic Shockwave 3, but I can't train it to any of my officers as it's an "Unknown node". Why is Photonic Shockwave 3 untrainable when I can train other rank 3 skills, that take up the Commander spot.
If this unknown node thing is a seperate issue than so be it, but as it stand now I still can't train it.
both spock and mr scott had the rank of captain in the later movies, and they were serving under kirk, who was also reduced to the rank of captain, so an admiral should be able to have a captain serving under them, even if they are only so in rank and not command.
