Before the skill revamp, I used to be able to train CPB-3. But now I can't seem to find the captain skill that will let you train it anymore.

Has it gone away? Will it come back? Has anyone ever seen a BOFF that comes with CPB-3?

So if you haven'T gotten a BO that has it right now - you probably have to level an alt and hope they really updated their BOFFs to include some with CPB3...

They've definitely done something to boff rewards already. My sci guy (max level) had 3 missions for boffs ready to turn in for months. When the patch hit I checked those missions and instead of being just 1 random boff, I could select from 3, one of each class. So some improvement there at least, used to hate getting engineer after engineer on my tac/escort builds....

GAH!

Thanks for pointing that out, Bitter. I would have never found it otherwise.

Guess I'll have to check my BO awards and keep perusing the Exchange ...

Yup, that changed sounds awesome. Whether you'll get CPB 3 in the mix is another matter, though.

They really did some odd things in the update tbh. Actually in a way they went both directions. I do love how they redid the ship spec skills and weapons spec skills, but the rest of the redesign just didnt make much sense from what I could tell, and then we had to go through the headache of getting all new purple sci consoles(wtf?). Not sure why CPB3 would be so powerful that it needed to be a random drop. Getting farther and farther from what "Star Trek" really was to be honest. Star Trek wasnt based on monetary rewards or earning some special sword that was in a stone. The federation had what the federation had, and every captain had access to it. Getting more and more like WoW every day...(and yes i know it already crossed that line long ago, but it is getting worse)

No one really understands the change. It was rather arbitrary and unnecessary.

In any case, based on what I've seen, CPB 3 is probably only on purple BOFFs. Tractor beam 3 was also made BOFF only and I know it can be found at least on blue BOFFs.
