Engineering Officer

From EOGamer Star Trek Online Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Survivability, support generators, and controlling the paths of enemy advance with field works. The Engineering Officer can withstand the most damage by improving the performance of their own personal shields, while supporting his away team with power generators or by bottle necking the enemy's advance with defensive minefields. Strongest shield generation and better engines. The Engineer's own combat effectiveness is improved by modifications to their firearms or support fire from fabricated turrets and drones.

More info on these will be available under Bridge Officers from Vendor.
