I'm not sure how the game decides to pass out certain specialties, but I've noticed the discrepancy between departments. You're more likely to get a Tactical duty officer than a Security duty officer, and I think I know why.

There are three Security specialties:
-Armory Officer
-Assault Squad Officer
-Security Officer

There are five (11) Tactical specialties:
-Conn Officer (Evasive, Tactical Team)
-Energy Weapons Officer
-Ground Warfare Specialist (Borg, Tholian, Undine)
-Projectile Weapons Officer
-Shield Distribution Officer
-Space Warfare Specialist (Borg, Tholian, Undine)

The game seems to be trying to provide these proportionally, but it ends up being disproportionate to individual needs. I have no problems with the current pricing for duty officers, but we need to be able to request Starfleet send us the specialties we need, not have crew randomly assigned. We are not the Borg Collective, but someone needs to bring order to this chaos!
