I'm not complaining, just making sure I'm not missing some functionality. My highest ranking boff is the XO and the others are just randomly assigned.
The FO and DH as they exist now in the DOff system are purely ornamental. The only affect having them assigned is determining which of your BOs pictures you see when you receive DOff Assignment Recommendations.
A future "First Officer" feature is in the works (but still a long ways away (months?)) that will in some way allow one or more of your BOs to improve themselves by "consuming" your Duty Officer's abilities (by consuming it's meant RP-wise that the DOff will become a part of the BO's personal staff). The current selection process is a babystep in this direction.
