If you've got the spare cash and XP, it certainly couldn't hurt and can only be beneficial. Purple boffs will have better traits, generally better powers (some only trainable by boffs). Also there are boffs with space specific traits, like the efficient trait (a very very VERY small boost to the ships power depending on your power levels) you sometimes find with Saurians and the Leadership trait you find on humans (which supposedly increases your hull regen, but this doesn't seem to work)

My preference for my away team is to have a very rare science boff with the superior peak health trait (higher HP) and superior resilient (higher resistance to damage) so they'll survive long enough to heal everyone up. My Tacs have superior lucky (greater crit chance) and superior resilient.

Luckily enough these are pretty cheap on the exchange because most people don't even know these traits exist.
