Right. Which in practical terms means it's not going to happen.

I feel tinkering with the crew mechanic would be an even trickier thing to do.

I'm all for coming up with ideas to help cruisers be more integral to the gameplay experience. But I think crew is just something that should remain the way it is. Since launch it's never quite panned out the way it was supposed to. And the game has evolved so far beyond it, mechanically. And the development team is a lot of fresh faces not familiar with these old, klunky mechanics.

Also, I maintain that what a player wants out of the concept of crew is represented in BOFFs and DOFFs quite effectively as is.
