Do you label boffs in dialogues or just leave them blank?

This is an interesting issue, it's nice to hear others' opinions on this.
I actually don't label them, mostly because it's nebulous what players think of their own officers. There's the tactical officer, sure, but maybe you think of them more as a security officer... or maybe you have a science boff that is specced medical officer. I realize that the dialogue can't be exact in that way either, but having it spelled out in text just makes it more obvious.
Since you can't put their names in as well, I just think it looks better keeping it blank. You know your boffs by their look... other story NPCs you may not.
