I really don't like the idea of loosing boffs. I've invested time and effort into crafting those characters, they are my crew, and to have them leave without me dismissing them seems.... wrong. Besides, look how long Riker was Picard's First officer before he finally got his own ship (yes, I am aware he was offered 3 commands in the series).
But I do like the idea of being to have one or two follow you in social zones, even if it is done with the pet mechanic and they are just reskinned. It may get a bit crowded though, is the only thing.
Personally, I would like the ability to assign them to set consoles on the bridge. My chief engineer is manning the helm on the Viper, but in my mind, my conn officer is a different boff.
