Previously, Dampening Field I was showing up on my Science Officer as a Commander-rank ground skill, and there was this odd little second row of background before it went to the space skills below that. I did a bug report on it, as it also wouldn't let me get rid of the skill...every time I tried to train her in a different Commander skill, hovering over the little dot to select her brought up "Unknown Node", and it was greyed out as an option to choose for replacement.
After today's patch, I figured maybe this was going to be fixed. I was a little annoyed that it might replace her current Lt. Commander skill of Tricorder Scan II when Dampening Field I got moved over to the Lt. Commander slot, but oh well...at least BO skillpoints are easy to come by. However, things didn't turn out quite that way.
As you can see, Dampening Field I ended up in the Lt. Commander slot all right...with my Tricorder Scan II skill shoved directly below it. And Dampening Field I was still greyed out, and saying it was a Commander skill.
Also, I STILL can't train my Science Officer in any Commander-rank skills to replace the new empty void under "Commander", as it continues to keep her selection greyed out and say it's the skill of "Unknown Node".
It wouldn't matter to me so much if it were a space skill that was messed up, as I'm a Cruiser captain and will never have an option to use the Commander-rank Science skills, but this puts a bit of a damper (pun not intended) on her ground usefulness. It'll still let me train Tricorder Scan II up, but once I eventually promote her to Commander, she's not going to have any new ground skill to work with, and I can't give her one.
Short of just getting and training up a new Science Officer, is there any way I can work around this?
