I'm an engineer and I fly around in escort ships. So I hit cmdr today and was very excited because I THOUGHT I could train my lt cmdr tact BO HY3 but surprise surprise I cant...... I see the point here. I cant train any tactical or science III skills since I'm an engineer and I cant USE any engineer III skills because escort ships dont have cmdr or captain slots. Pilot a cruiser you say? Without the skill points to support cruiser, it will have a weaker hull and take forever to turn 360 degrees.

I really don't see why they have to restrict us like this. Its canon for the captain of the ship to know multiple skills not relating to his profession. And it really bugs me that there are no ingame guides or tutorials telling you this. I had to find out this way when I'm already lvl 21 and almost HALF way through the game. Now what do I do? Wait for the dev to be merciful and let us train whatever skills we want? They "said" we could play whatever style we want. But the way they're doing things they're saying a engineer HAS to be a cruiser captain, tactical with escorts, and science in science ships. Meh I dunno anymore. I feel my char build is now gimped and I'm a subpar escort captain.

Its rather annoying the way it is. I skilled up the Torpedo Level and wanted to train it to my Bridge Officer ... i couldnt.
I even wrote a bug report about the train button not working.
It doesnt say anywhere that you cant.
And since trading Bridge Officers doesnt work either at the moment, and i just spend 30 minutes looking through rare bridge officers on the exchange without success.

I vote to remove the restriction too.

Yep, Tac+Cruiser here, already slightly annoyed at the slowness of the T3 heavy CRs in general compared to their counterparts, but my engineering officer came with Aux to Structural in his LtCmdr slot, and I sort of rather wanted something that would save me in a pinch rather than add 2% to my hull, like emergency power to shields 3.

All I have to say on this matter is I am an idiot to have not seen this coming, and cannot wait until respecs are available.

I was wondering about this just started to see how badly it gimps you. I figured it wasn’t something to be worrying about because in all the interviews the devs said we’d be training each others bo’s. now there doesn’t seem to be any word about when and if we’ll get it.

I'd like that it is a little guarded but I want the BO's to be traded once trained. This makes fleets and friends important. It would also mean profit on the exchange^^;;

trading commissioned BOs is already planned but its not on the top of their list. they're working on all the major bugs and glitches first.

FFS !!

this is really annoying, I just hit lvl 21 and found out I can NOT train my tac officers torpedo's high yield 3 .... I really wouldn't have minded some kind of warning or info about this ! ( yes engeneer flying an escort .... i was going for cruisers at start, but have you seen their turnspeed ?? )

Now i have my 2nd tact BO all set up, with the wrong frigging skills !! When i took my first steps specialising i was VERY carefull, I even bought both a T2 cruiser and escort to try them out, and only started spending points when I had a clear idea of how to go ...
And then they throw something like this on you !! #$^_(*^&$%^

I hope they fix this asap, or at least put in some warnings ...

I totally agree with the OP. Captain class shouldn't matter.
