The ones purchased at stores, or received from mission completion, are different config files, even though they share the same Display names. Therefore they cannot be used for these projects at this time.

We'll be updating the Projects to accept a wider range of Bridge Officers (hopefully encompassing all possibilities), and should have that fix in next week's patch.
This is going to create an entertaining temporary market of trying to fail doff assignments to be able to meet requirements.

You 'do' realize that by making it common quality bridge officers you actually made it harder to fill even if it was not borked currently?

Can't really disagree with this statement. We pay their salaries. Without us, there would be no Cryptic, no STO, nothing. And yes, while our comments may not always come off with the fullest of respect, Cryptic needs US more than we need THEM.

thankyou for finding the issue. Would it be possible for you to remove the project from the starbase so that we can get another one up and running. That is after you fix the disconnection issue.

It would seem that we are stuck with the bugged project for another week then. Thankyou for finding the problem tho. As for the "why did you do it" comments.. well we've done all the t4 upgrades. It would seem only logical to clean up the bridge officer projects while we work towards tier 5. And it's not like we had any reason to believe it would be bugged. We fill projects in seconds, even upgrades. So there was no need for concern when we chose to start it. Thankyou Dura for your efforts to have this bug fixed I know the whole fleet appreciates al the hard work you put in.
So thanks again Borticus for finding the problem.

Now go and get your Turkey so you can have some Gobble gobble tomorrow.
You think that your beta test was bad?

LOL before the patch I was having an issue on my engineer on KDF side using the 1000 day vet ship where it was trying to put every single boff skill I had on my boffs on my skill bar every time I logged it in and when I looked at my boff stations they all showed none.

For a 'small' dilithium fee.

Having to buy new boffs while at the same time hundreds of thousands are already in circulation 'somehow' feels wrong.
