It depends on which tier and what type of escort. For standard tier 5, there is fleet escort which has 1 commander tactical, 1 LtCmdr tactical, 1 Lt engineer, 1 ensign engineer, and 1 Lt science stations. Advanced escort has 1 commander tactical, 1 LtCmdr tactical, 1 Lt engineer, 1 Lt science, and 1 ensign science. Both have total of 5, but differ in the number of engineering and science officers. And then there is the tier 5 retrofit ship (Defiant retrofit) which I think has 3 tactical, 1 eng, and 1 sci. Can't remember off the top of my head.
Thank you all ! with your help I was able to fix the problem.
One more question... The absolute maximum number of live and active bridge officers for an escort ship is.....?
By live and active I mean to be able to use their abilities without having to switch out officers and use dormant officers that normally not in use.
I hope I got what you're talking about, if you mean maximum amount of Bridge officers, that changes per rank (i.e. LT, LTC. CO and so on) what degree it is increased by I don't know off the top of my head, BUT, if you press U on look on the left side bar (where your charcter name is) if there are any free slots open for more Bridge officers they will be grey with a black icon and it says something to the effect of "Bridge Officer Slot"
