I keep seeing this DOFF Assignment flash up about using Telekinetics for Security or something.

The Required Trait is Telekinetic and the Job Category is Security Officer.

But as far as I know, the only Telekinetics ingame are the Vorta.
And they seem to be wholly science based, which I'm assuming to mean that none of them are Security Officers!

So how do you do this assignment if the requested DOFF does not exist?

Dathan, the Vorta Biochemist DOFF is dropped from the Dominion Cadre pack. It is a reward for completeting the Facility 4028. Also, Vortas are possible speices you can obtain from Gamma Quadrent Cadre packs. That is the appropriate DOFF you are looking for.

# 3 Even more confused now

Yes, I've got 1 or 2 Vortas on my crew.

But what's causing my confusion is that it specifies Security Officer, not Biochemist or some other branch of science.

And while I've opened a fair number of these packs, not one Vorta who has come out of it has been something other then a Science specialist!

It does not have to be a security officer. It just increases your chance of success if the telekinetic character IS a security officer.

I will point out that the Vorta in charge of the Dominion Interniment Camp 371 (DS9 episode "In Purgatory's Shadow") is represetnted as a Security classification personnel in Decipher's Star Trek CCG.

In addition to the Biochemist from the 2800 and the Warp Theorists from the Zenas Expanse it is possible to get random Vortas from the Dominion Exchange.

I personally have a Development Lab Scientist. So in principle Security Officer Vortas should exist, too.

But the question is if it's possible to very specifically get a Vorta SECURITY OFFICER. That's all that matters for these Doff missions.

Or not even a Vorta.

A Telekinetic Security Officer will do me just fine.

However, I don't think what I'm seeking exists!


And Development Lab Scientist is still a science base, so I'm not sure that helps prove the case that Vortas exist in a capacity other then science roles.

I was wondering about that as I usually see those 2 traits together as options for doff missions.

I have an Armory Officer named Dusble Xupit with Telepathic trait. She;s Betazoid. Maybe you can find a Betazoid security officer?

Telepathic does not equal TeleKINETIC. One reads thoughts, the other moves things with their mind. Many races currently can generate as Telepathic (Vulcans, Lethans, Betazoids, etc). There are 2 Non-Vorta Telekinetic officers though (Project Chrysalis)

And, to answer the OP.

The only Telekinetic BOFFs (listed on the Wiki, Standard Disclaimers apply). are Dathan (Biochemist), Kilara (Warp Theorist, Fed Zenas Renown), Yelgrun (Warp Theorist, Fed Zenas Support Crit), and the Project Chrysalis BOFF (Mochak or Elizabeth Mohr, both Advisors) If any others exist they're either not on the wiki, or not Blue+ Quality.

# 10 Are Ocampans a possibilty?
05-23-2012, 03:31 PM
I was looking at the Season 6 notes and there's a reference to "playable Ocampans".

And that got me thinking.

In Voyager, some Ocampans have displayed Telekinetic Abilities.

So, if they implemented this race as Doffs and they had the Telekinetic Trait, could an Ocampan Security Officer be the Doff I require for this assignment?

Food for thought..........
