I filed a bug report a week ago.
So far the only response I got was an automatic thank you note.
So here's a reminder. Maybe this time someone will actually bother to read it.
I skilled up my Starship Shield Performance to lvl 9.
This should allow me to teach my BOs the Extend shield II ability.
Except it doesnt.
Just today I got my Admiral Ability: Rank I.
That's some space abbility. I say some because this is also missing.
Game says I got it but when I look under P there's nothing new there.
I hope this gets resolved when devs have a bit more time after the release
of that mythical 45day update.
But I'm not holding my breath. Thankfully my character is almost maxed out so there aren't any
other abilities that I should get, but won't.
The rank 1 admiral power that you get is fleet support, which is a passive chance to warp in some support if your hull is at or lower than 50%. (so it doesn't need to showup in the power page, though needs a better explanation i agree) As for the extend shield thing, I am/was under the impression that you can only train that if your a science officer yourself? So if your tac or engin you can't train your BO, same for a sci/engin trying to train HYT III to a tac BO. My tac char can train HYT III but my sci char can't even though they both have 9 ranks of torp. Thats my guess/understanding of it anyway, one could argue that they should better explain, but trial and error imo is more fun.
