I love my Borg boff, and I want to keep using her, but not being able to trade her means I miss out on a lot of great abilities. Please change this Cryptic!

What abilities are you missing out on?

Unless you're not an engineering captain, in which case... TS.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.

I'm a tac, so I miss out on any captain training only engineer abilities. However, this same situation would be true of anyone who has bought a c-store boff, regardless of their captain type or boff type.

I prefer the sacrifical boff method. You have someone train a sacrifical engineer boff with the skill you want and they package them up and put it in the inactive form in their inventory. They trade the boff to you and you can sacrifice that boff to train your borg boff. This method would work for all boffs that are bound. Although for the borg boff, having them similar to the Caitian and Aenar boffs would work as well and they could be unbound that way. Although, that might cause some problems with people that did KA ground for the male science borg boff.

I thought of that, and tried it this morning. I couldn't get it to work though. A fleetmate trained a random boff I had, then traded it back to me. However, it would only go in my active roster, and I couldn't use it to train. AFAIK, there isn't a way for someone to train a boff, and then package it back up (for sale on the exchange, or for it to go in to a reserve roster.) Unless I'm missing something major?

It is not in the game and is a feature that has been requested before. Basically it requires changing an active bridge officer to an inactive one.

Oh, gotcha. Totally misread what you had read. Either system would work. Regardless of the method, something should change. It makes no sense that other boffs can be traded/trained, but not the C-Store ones.

I should test this first, but I am pretty sure an active boff can be sent via mail and will arrive "packed up."

I agree. I would like the BorgBOff to be tradeable as well so she could be trained in new T3 and T4 skills that are hard to get normally on other BO's.

But I will use this get-around instead.
