Tactical is a profession that involves many things. This profession involves combatting damage, stealth tactics and squad tactics. The tactical officer can deliver damage in the widest variety of methods, while supporting his away team by drawing off enemy threat or bolstering their combat effectiveness with tactics and squad commands.
Tactical officers have 3 choices. Soldier(direct damage), Security(tank and defensive roles) and Special Ops(stealth) Soldier
- The Soldier - The most damage intensive class. They are the most direct attack class.
- Security - Security acts as a tank in typical combat roles. Although Cryptic has said that conventional battle tactics will not be part of STO, security can take the most damage. However they must sacrifice some attack.
- Special Operations - Special Operations has the unique ability to stealth. They can sneak behind enemy lines and attack from behind.
