Alright, so, I just hit Lt. Cmdr and decided to promote on of my Engineering Bridge Offiers, and yes, I'm flying a cruiser, so I'm fairly certain I can have at least 1 Eng. BO at lieutenant level. So, I promted him, and then leveled his ability to level 9 because Emergency Power to Shields 2 is fairly decent, i believe. However, when I go to add his ability to my hotkeys or w/e, his 1st tier, Ensign ability is only available and I can't seem to find out why. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Why are you only fairly certain? Look at the station in the assignments tab and see which boxes are lit up for the engineering station, so you know which powers should be available. Then you'll be entirely certain. If the box for the correct station is lit up and you still can't get access to the ability, I'd bug it.
