You know, you could collapse some of the DOFF specializations in with each other, especially in the engineering department, simply because they're rather redundant.
Like the Diagnostic officers? Why do you need someone who only does diagnostics, instead of having a technician look at something? Makes no sense.
And damage control falls under the purview of Maintenance officers, thus making that set annoying redundant.
And why do we have antimatter specialists and warp core specialists? You would figure one or the other (as both are directly interrelated, and it makes no sense to emphasize one or the other, because it would generate hazardous departmental friction around the most important parts of the ship), but not both at the same time.
There is some redundancy in the science department as well, but other than development/research lab scientists, nothing sticks out.
