Rare and Very Rare in the duty officer system are, in fact, much rarer than Rare and Very Rare are in other parts of the game. This is by design; we wanted to make sure that getting a perfect crew of purple - or even blue - duty officers would be an extremely long term proposition.

I just figured it was (bad) luck of the draw. >shrug<
Currently there are no non-unique Federation Flight Deck Officers. I am not against putting some in if there is enough interest, but I figured their use on the Federation side was so narrow that people would be more irritated by getting Flight Deck Officers when they would have preferred something else.
