Not even in your wildest dream. Just don't. Once you fill your DoFF roster with purple and blue DoFFs, sure, you may sell those puny white ones you don't use any more or upgrade them by combining or exchanging assignments, but you're new, stick to every asset you have and don't sell something just because you're not sure what is it used for but can be sold for a nice cash on the exchange.
To build on this: Duty Officers are an optional system, but they're a lot of fun (most important), are a source of XP, buffs, items, and Dilithium. Selling your Duty Officers lowers your ability to play the Duty Officer Assignment successfully, since you never know when a particular DOFF or set of traits will be useful.

I would not sell the Duty Officers on your main playing character. Now, if you had an alt, that's something else entirely. I've got one alt whose sole purpose in life is to recruit DOFFs and sell them on the Exchange. That's it! I check him once every few days and that's it.

Now, if you're playing with Duty Officers and doing content that earns you Dilithium? There's a way to make EC from that! Earn Dilithium, buy Zen, then buy Master Keys and/or Fleet Modules to sell to other players on the Exchange.

Also, ertihan wrote a nice guide as well, but its a little more involved, methinks.

Find what works for your time/schedule and playstyle. It'll make it a lot easier, and more enjoyable.
