lol- I always wondered why there iwas no " Rapid Psychological Fire" ability offeredfrom the ships counsellor in the series or the dreaded "Medicaid Redtape" stun power of the ships doctor.

" Don't worry Captain, I've stunned them with ancient medicaid rites of 2010. They will be down for hours in a sea of redtape. They should think themselves lucky I'm not a master of Obamacare, lest they perish."


To the thrad in general,
As to a player having a more customized ability to control the BO layout on thier level-capped ships, I support the concept that a captain should be able to make thier highest BOff that follows the players carreer choice as a thier prime U-slot BO slot and have all others slots fixed to the design parameters of the vessel in question.
It would be better than rampant U-slot usage throughout the game and let some design to their own preferences.

Not to burst your bubble, but, actually Decker was demoted to Commander (I don't know why, RL Carriers have at least 5 Captain's on board), and Spock didn't make Captain till right before TWOK, when he took command of the Enterprise.

it's star ship, not star trek.

and the multiple ranks makes sence because if you have 4 commanders, and the only chance of promotion is first officer then captin. and you were'nt the FO you'd want re-assignment pritty dang sharp ish. that and in tough dessicions you need a chain of command rather than a bunch of bickering equals

Also the OP is missing the point that the BO positions on ships in STO are an abstract related to the capabilities and limitations of the ship itself rather than those of officers themselves. For example, the sensors, emitters and deflector control on a Escort simply do not match those onboard a Science Vessel. Spock with an electron microscope and a bank of Creys can do alot more than Spock with a magnifying glass and pocket calculator.

Actually NCC-1701 Had three known Captains; Captain Robert April, Captain Christopher Pike, and Captain James T. Kirk.

If you're counting April then there have been 5 verified captains of the original 1701.
Captain Robert April - 2245
Captain Christopher Pike - 2251 to 2264
Captain James T. Kirk - 2265 to 2270, and 2273s (V'Ger), possibly until 2281 (if the unmade "Phase 2" is accepted), and again 2285 (Khan & Genesis)
Captain Willard Decker - 2270 (or shortly thereafter) to 2273
Captain Spock - 2281 to 2285 (Cadet training cycle)

Although I think the OP was, mistakenly, getting at having more than one captain rank (or higher) officer onboard at the same time. That wasn't quite correct, as neither Decker or Spock held the rank of Captain at the same time.
For V'Ger, Kirk assumed command and Decker was booted down to Commander.
For Khan, Kirk was initially present for an inspection and, as flag officer, assumed command when Enterprise was ordered to investigate Regula 1. Technically the ship was still officially under Spock's command and would have still been had he survived TWoK.
