do you write bios for your BOs?

Yes, of course I do.
The complexity varies depending on how much backstory I can think up for them (I have around 22 BOFFs between 2 characters), but generally, they get one or two lines each.
Mainly, it's to make them seem more thought out and actually participating in the game, rather then just a named NPC whose sole job is to fight stuff.
Although there's no way to do this in the game, I've even assigned unofficial ranks to them.
Something like: you're co-captain, you're first officer, you're head of science/engineering/ship's doctor etc.
