# 1 Engineering Team 3

Why do we have to rank up a ground skill, that we don't want, all the way up to 9 to unlock this space ability, while all the other ground skill unlocks are ground abilities and the space skills unlocks space abilities?

Is this intended or is this a bug?

Currently, we have to skill up the "Technician" skill among the Engineering Officer skills to be able to train our officers Engineering Team 3.

Now I know you're gonna say: "So that only engineers get that ability and not any other officer"

Well for example we all have the "Starship Torpedo Weapons" skill and it unlocks High Yield 3, unfortunately only tactical officers can train their BO's in that skill. So you have a couple of choices from among the Starship Engineering skill block to integrate the ability to unlock training Engineering Team 3 to BO's.

It works the same way with Science Team III. You have to train Doctor to skill 9 and that is arguably far more useless than your Engineering Ground Skill because you simply never need to heal your BO's in ground missions.

Because you are actually sending over crew. Your ability with engineering, science or security is what allows you to fine tune the teams and make them the best of the best.

Under the current CAPPED system this is utterly LAME.

Under the uncapped systems it was ok...

Your Crew and BOs should have training in all fields ground and Space not only one to max min your crew..

Just be glad your BOs cant die, retire, quit or get captured

on a serious note its only Tier 2 skill that needs to be maxed hardly any points at all.

Personally found it very useful as I do a lot of ground PvP
