I've so far only been using four BO and picking out what ever powers I wanted. But with each new tier of ship you get more BO slots, yet of course you can still only assign four officers at a time and not change them mid combat. So my question is, why have an extra four or so BO if you don't ever actually use them, is there a benefit other then saying your crew is full?
P.S. Sorry if this questions is misplaced on the forum, I'm rather new to posting on them
You can switch BO's as soon as you are out of combat ...means as soon as Full Impulse is possible you are able to switch BO's too. So you can even switch your Setup while in a PvP map to more suit your playstyle.
Personaly I set up my bridge crew and my away team to be different BO's. I have my 4 BO away team that does not train space abilities, and my 5 BO bridge crew that does not train in ground abilities. Oh and 1 extra.
