Just brainstorming here... Heretic, what about the possibility of having Ferra sell some White/Common DOffs. Say one of each of whatever non-civilian that doesn't come in the Starter 20 Pack. Vanillas across the board: Human with only basic human traits. Nothing too useful other than meeting the min specialization requirements. Ferra could sell these for 100-200 Dil each or something like that. Bound and Unique, so you only can buy one (at a time, if they die on assignment, come back, buy another, red-shirt style).
Recruitment commendation rank has no effect on what you get when you open a pack. Recruitment commendation rank does open up some additional recruitment assignments, however.

Regarding making white duty officers available, there has been a lot of discussion and debate internally about this, but at this time we feel the Exchange offers a sufficiently plentiful supply, particularly once we get the Exchange sorting and filtering issues nailed down.

Regarding rarity, we have no current plans to significantly adjust how rare "Rare" is. Getting a crew of all purples - or even all Blues - should be a monumental achievement. That being said, white quality duty officers are much more viable than, say, white quality weapons in the normal course of gameplay.
