I actually wish more systems were cross-officer like crew is. I think it's a flavorful and interesting twist that STO offers, and a good way to make powers like "science team" and "share shields" and "emergency power to shields" differentiable -- they offer similar basic functionality, with some minor differences, and different secondary effects, balanced against using different systems (thus governing how they synergize with other abilities).
Way to go, Cryptic. Now, if only some other systems weren't hard-locked to one BOff type, like torpedoes, or tractor beams. =) If this happened with other systems than "crew," perhaps it would be more easily noticed and grasped by the player populace, instead of assuming it's some kind of bug.
