Honestly, the game is still in it's infancy, over the course of the next year we should see alot of changes to how BOffs are used and improvements along the way. Having a well equiped and trained up backup team seems like good forethought.
I started replacing crew early with blues bought off the exchange, mostly for better ground traits (superior creative, superior nerve pinch, superior limited telepathy, etc).

My original bridge crew is still around, but backup officers are available with skillsets that I can use to switch out when necessary. A PVP crew loadout might be different than one taken on exploration missions.
