I have a lieutenant tactical bridge officer who is training in beam target weapon ability, but I can't use it because i'm not using the correct console. I've tried mark2, mark 3, and mark 4 tactical consoles in my ship but nothing works. My science BO can use his lt ability with a mark2 console so i'm baffled.
I've been searching this forum for an hour trying to find some help with no luck. Anyone have a solution please?
Look at the chart in this post, it shows the list of every ship class in the game and which bridge officer stations each ship has. Science ships allow science officers to use higher end abilities, same with escort and tactical, and cruisers with engineers. Consoles are just buffs that a ship can have.
Assuming you're a Lt Commander :
Science ships have 3 ensign (1Tactical, 1 Engineering, 1 Science) and 1 Lt (Science) station
Escorts have 3 ensign (1Tactical, 1 Engineering, 1 Science) and 1 Lt (Tactical) station
Cruisers have 3 ensign (1Tactical, 1 Engineering, 1 Science) and 1 Lt (Engineering) station
