When I played my published mission, I noticed that the dialogue I had set for Science Officer boffs on the ship showed my engineer boff on the ship instead. I know I have a science officer I didn't take with me on the away team left aboad my ship.
Now, playing someone else's mission I notice the same thing. The dialogue said that they were contacting my science officer on the ship, but instead the engineer showed again.
Is this a bug or is it normal behaviour? E.g. does it do it on live server or is it because the game thinks my engineer is more appropriate to show (higher rank maybe)?
The BOFF's are bugged as far as I can tell. When ever I beam down to a location in a Foundry mission, only one of my officers comes with me, the rest are generic security. Whatever other offices I have set by default to come with me seem to disappear from the game. They haven't come with me, but they don't behave as if they're still on the ship.
It'd be nice if this would get fixed. I have my away team set up the way I like it, and only having one member beam down with me is making the ground missions much more difficult to finish.
