Let's call these "Red Quality." They come with a +10% chance of failure. Maybe make Pakleds a common form of these. You and Kestrel could write up quotes for them that indicate incompetence, bad attitudes, and a tendency towards accidental deaths. They're basically your "last resort"/"I really want to send warm bodies on this assignment" option. They could have traits like Incompetent and Unlucky. Make them an EC sink. Add assignments where these guys are an asset but in general make them assignment filler.

There could also be Red Quality BOs down the road with some fun mechanics based around them messing up or getting killed. Have accolades associated with them dying A LOT. Things like "Tin-Plated Dictator" as a title. Specific ones by species too so that when your red quality Vulcan dies 10k times, you get the title "Tal Shiar Double Agent" or when you've lost 10k Bajorans, you get a title like "Occupation Overseer."
I almost like that idea. Not enough to want the DO system retooled for them, but it does bring a smile to my face.
