Basic Information[edit | edit source]

  • Profession: Any
  • Locale: Space
  • Game Description:
  • Build Inspiration when you use Bridge Officer abilities while in combat. Command Bridge Officer abilities generate double Inspiration.
  • Once your Inspiration meter is full, you can use an Inspiration ability. Once used, your Inspiration meter is reset to 0 and you will be unable to generate Inspiration for a short time.

Abilities[edit | edit source]
