Once all of this has gone live (including Dept. Heads and XO) and you've ironed out any issues, you should really think about also doing an "Admiral's version" of this whole concept, using ships and small squadrons rather than duty officers, as part of the endgame. I'm sure it would rock and the general principle sounds fairly compatible (could also serve as a "moneydump" when paying resources for requisitioned ships that may get lost or damaged during assignments similar to how it works with duty officers).
Will we also be able to send BOs on assignments, by the way? Or will they be limited to the role of Department Heads?
That sounds like a great idea. The DoFF system could translate really well into a form of Fleet Admiral game. Maybe with the system allowing ships to get promoted up (like the department heads) that could then act as escorts with your own ship.
