Are you saying kits are only for your characters and not for your bridge officers? If so, then I understand why they don't have a slot to equip a kit. If bridge officers are supposed to be able to equip kits, then I have a problem. My character has a designated kits slot and the skill is in the tool tray at the bottom.... I got that part. However, if BOs are supposed to equip kits (above and beyond their ordinary skill set) then I have a problem because my BOs,have no place to equip a kit in the first place. All the kits I have for them are in my general inventory with no way to allocate them to my BOs. When I try to equip a kit for my BO's it tells me they cannot equip this kit, even though it is a science for a science officer, tactical for tactical etc. Either there is some kind of bug, or i don't understand something correctly.
Can someone tell me if Bridge officers are supposed to be able to equip kits.
You're stuck with whatever you've got your Officers trained in. The only option, if you don't like their abilities is to buy training for them. It would be nice if you could swap out kits on them, except for the inventory space it would take up.
