I've said it before, I'll say it again: The cost is reasonable if they'd let us pick the exact specialization, or at least the department, of the very rare Doff we'd be getting out of this. As is, it's a 5000 dilithium slot machine that eats your Doffs and spits out bartenders and refugees.

Frankly, that part of the Doff system always has been a disappointment. When they'd first put it in, I was expecting more of a trading card interface, where you're trading your bartender to the ship that just had its Irish XO promoted to captain, and get back something you actually needed in return. Instead I go to Starfleet academy, and they take me to a special building where I get five random graduates crammed in an unmarked crate. This just seems like something we need to have more control over. And unergonomical.

And the less said about the exchange, the better.
