# 1 Reinforcements

I seem to remember a 'Call in Reinforcements" option somewhere in the tutorial if you find yourself outnumbered in a ground engagement. Does this button exist, or was I imagining it?

I only seem to recall seeing it when it was just myself and another BO.

Castmodean is correct. It only appears when you do not have a complete ground team. A complete team is made up of 5 people, either other players, BOs, or a combination of both.

My higher-ranking tactical officers also have the ability to call in reinforcements even if I have a full party. I'm not sure at what level I learned this ability, but it allows me to beam two additional security officers into the fray.

It's either a Captain or an Admiral Tac Officer Ground Skill. It works more along the lines of how Photonic Fleet works for Science Officers in Space. I believe it's called Security Escort.

That's cool. I'm already a Tactical Officer, so I forward to that ability.

Whenever I've tried the button it doesn't work.

It depends on the situation. If you beam down with 1 BO on a mission that involves scanning items on the planet surface then it won't work. However if you are in a combat situation and you have less than 5 BOs it will work. The other exception to this is the tutorial.

EDIT: With Season 2 all Rear Admirals will be getting a click-able space ability to call in one reinforcement ship if your hull strength is at 50% or less.

Isn't this already in game, but an auto power with a 1 hour recharge?
