Fed.... are you saying that the exchange will allow you to purchase the officer from another faction with no warning that they are not usable by your faction?
I especially liked the Fed player who was selling "Orion Slave Girls" for your bridge crew on Earth Space Dock. He mailed himself a bunch of Orion BOs from his Klingon toon and was sellimg them (in chat, not the exchange) for 300k each. Course he "forgot" to mention that you could not use them in his sales pitch.
I am understandabally dissapointed.... That money is probally gone and it could have been readily prevented by a proper design of the exchange. I will not throw a tantrum over this - just need to keep things in perspective
Now to make some Lemonade and get the sour taste out,,,
Ya know - Getting a Orion BO (or the ability to use one) would make a Great Mission or perhaps Store item. -
If ya agree, post a reply and let folks know you agree.
I commissioned one of the Alien bridge officers and with some tinkering at the tailor, she now physically looks like an Orion - she's one of my tactical officers. I hadn't noticed the actual Orions could even show up despite not being able to use them.
Ok, they may not be a real Orion, but they look the part.
