While your class is similar to the bridge officers for each type of officer in game, it is important to note that bridge officers you can acquire in-game have different abilities and these abilities should be considered before you take them as a quest reward or requisition a bridge officer from a vendor for your ship. More info on these will be available under Bridge Officers from Vendor.
