# 1 Skill Misname?
01-04-2012, 06:52 PM
I noticed that one of the Captain's skills is 'Starship Inertial Dampeners'. Shouldn't that be 'Starship Inertial dampers' without the 'en'? I am fairly certain was the way that it was on the shows and Memory-Alpha has it listed that way as well:

That, and "Starship Impulse Thrusters" bugs me as well, since Impulse and Thrusters are seperate systems...

The skill I believe is misnamed is the ground science skill: "triage"

Triage is the process of determining the priority of patients' treatments based on the severity of their condition.

So in essence deciding who needs help now to survive while leaving those who do not need immediate attention for later and also leaving those who you can not save to die.

In STO the "triage" skill is a AOE heal and buff.

So helping everyone regardless of their condition.. Which is sorta the opposite of the "real" meaning.

Hm. What would fit there?

Perhaps "Emergency Medicine" - a medical specialty concerned with the care and treatment of acutely ill or injured patients who need immediate medical attention
