I have 2 Ensign Tactical Officers. One I had trained up to "Torpedo Spread I" level 9 at a cost of 400 Bridge Officer points. The other one had a space skill at ensign that I didn't want so I went to the trainer to retrain him in "Torpedo - High Yield I" so I would have both Torpedo skills in my BO's.
Well, I accidentally clicked on the wrong tactical officer (which I admit I should have been more careful) and as a result lost the level 9 skill and now have a level 1 skill.
Cryptic - if we retrain a BO who already has skill points assigned, can we please get a warning box that says "by doing this you will forfeit XXX bridge officer points!" Had I seen that I would have realized my error before committing to it.
Again - I take 100% of the responsibility for making this error - just trying to suggest an improvement to save the next player the same frustration. Thanks.
It is for this reason that I'm trying to stick with my current BOs for the entire career of my first toon. I just recently found out that I did not need to promote my Eng and Sci officers for their Space based skills (I'm in an Escort, and those BOs can't use their skills beyond ENS level). From what I understand, Ground Skills can be trained and used at higher ranks / levels.
