Why Is It That ... ???
 
I notice when trying to trade underperforming officers in at SFA it excludes a number of officers from being able to be used.

I tried to make heads and tails out of the logic and reasoning to include seeing that the ones you trade in it says must be civilian, ensign, petty officer, specialist, or technician for the green ones in the case I was trying to use them for.

Unfortunately it would not give me the option of choosing numerous ones that I wanted to dump.

I thought perhaps it might be that you can't use the ones that already have a lock on them which in fact were the ones I wanted to get rid of, but that was not it because it would let me choose some of those.

The only other things I can think of is either it won't let you use the ones you get as rewards for tiering up in the various Commendation catagories, or that its some sort of bug.

Does anyone know for sure about this issue?

I've been trying to work it out myself, and only thing I can get so far is locked don't seem to be able to be munged. But other's seem to think it's possible :confused: :confused:

You cannot use the ones bought from the recruiter (commendation DOFFs).

But you can use those in the officer exchange assignments.

You answered your own question :)

There are a few other limitations as well (no replicator holo DOffs allowed), but for the most part you got it :)

The restrictions are to prevent certain exploits. The main ones, as noticed, is that you cannot use commendation reward duty officers for reassignments, nor the replicatable holographic duty officers.

Also, probably obvious but something you may have forgotten to check (as I did a couple of times) you can't trade in anyone who is currently on assignment or active duty.
