Special bridge officer
A Special Bridge Officer is a bridge officer which is unique in some way. They are typically acquired in an atypical way, such as a mission reward, C-Store purchase, or completion of a Reputation. Many special bridge officers officers cannot be customized at the Tailor.
Tutorial bridge officers[edit | edit source]
These bridge officers are acquired through completion of each faction's tutorial and early storyline missions. All of the tutorial bridge officers are unique in that they have four Standard-tier traits, which is an impossible loadout on standard bridge officers you can obtain throughout the game. Some of the others have other unique qualities to them, noted on their pages.
The initial cadre of Dominion bridge officers are awarded on character creation as they do not go through a tutorial. Two of the bridge officers do however feature in the Dominion faction introductory missions “Hunt” and “Ceremony”.

Upon reaching Rank 4 in the Diplomatic / Marauding duty officer commendation category, players may claim a single special commendation officer. You may only claim and own one of these boffs, however dismissing it will allow you to reclaim another. These bridge officers, no matter whether obtained through Diplomacy or Marauding, are limited to their native-faction costume options (i.e. an Orion cannot wear a Starfleet uniform).

Humble Bundle[edit | edit source]
- Romulan Liberated Borg Bridge Officer - This Romulan Republic-exclusive bridge officer can currently only be obtained via the "Star Trek Online - Humble Trekkie Pack". It comes in a which looks as if it contains a single Borg Bridge Officer, but when opened by a Romulan Republic character (of either alignment), you will receive both this officer as well as another—Federation Liberated Borg Bridge Officer if Federation-aligned, Klingon Liberated Borg Bridge Officer if Klingon-aligned—which are the same as those already obtainable from the C-Store and other sources. This officer is functionally identical to the aforementioned Federation/Klingon Liberated Borg Bridge Officers, but may be commissioned alongside them. This bundle can only be claimed once per account from the Promotions tab of the C-Store as "Humble Bundle Promotion 2018", so make sure you claim it on the Romulan Republic character you truly want to have the officer. Claiming this bundle on a non-Romulan character will cause the box to only give you the aforementioned Federation/Klingon Liberated Borg Bridge Officers depending on their faction, which will lock your account out of obtaining the Romulan Liberated Borg Bridge Officer.

Original Federation tutorial bridge officers[edit | edit source]
The original Federation Tour of Duty tutorial mission “Khitomer Crisis” offered players a choice of one of the following (no longer available) bridge officers, which are unique in that they have four standard traits, an impossible loadout on modern bridge officers. They were commissioned at common quality, become uncommon quality in the status screen, yet they have the same amount of "trait points" as a modern rare bridge officer.
- Tactical Duty Officer, a female Andorian with Acute Senses, Cold Dwelling, Fury and Stubborn.
- Engineering Duty Officer, a male Bolian with Corrosive Blood, Creative, Lucky and Resilient.
- Science Duty Officer, a male Vulcan with Logical, Nerve Pinch, Peak Health and Physical Strength.
Steam Promo Pack bridge officers[edit | edit source]
The Steam Starter Pack came with two bridge officers that have unique trait loadouts:
- The male Trill Engineering Officer Candidate has Basic Luck, Hyper Metabolism, Stubborn and Teamwork; Basic Luck and Teamwork are normally unavailable on Trill officers.
- The female Vulcan Science Officer Candidate has Basic Creativity, Logical, Nerve Pinch and Peak Health; Vulcan bridge officers are normally required to have Physical Strength.
This bundle was removed from Steam and can no longer be purchased, though keys purchased prior to its removal will still work. Future characters on your account can continue to claim the officers, albeit only once, and they cannot be reclaimed if dismissed or discarded. The Steam Runner Bundle that replaced it in the C-Store does not come with the bridge officers, meaning they are now otherwise unobtainable.
