Got promoted last night to lt. cmdr and got my new escort ship. What I wanted to do next is train my tactical officer in Cannon: rapid fire but i accidently, somehow stupidly, managed to train in Cannon: Scatter Volley. (i had promoted my tactical officer to lt.)
I tried removing the Cannon Scatter Volley skill to make room but I cant find where to do it. I also tried spending some more credits and trained my tactical officer again in Cannon: rapid fire but it says it has to replace Attack Pattern Alpha which I don't really want it to do (ideally, I want it to replace the Cannon Scattor Volley!). My Tactical officer initial ability was torp high yield which I maxed out skill wise and plan on keeping as its nice.
So I reluctantly clicked yes to replace Attack Pattern Alpha with a view to getting it back asap but when I beamed back to my ship I couldn't see where I can equip Cannon: rapid fire! Attack Pattern Alpha was still there too so I am now double confused.
I also tried recruiting another tactical officer (as I now have two slots) but this guy seems useless at the moment because his special ability is Fire at will: beam weapons and is too much of a noob to be trained in anything else. I use 2 Cannons and a Quantom launcher fwd facing with a nice turrent on the aft.
Can any anyone explain to me what I should be doing to equip my my officer with Cannon: rapid fire?
