I received a BO from a quest. I accepted it, it went to Assignments, I looked at it (it was green), but wasn't ready to use it yet, so I let it sit.
A few lvls later, I got another, this one was blue. I accepted it, went to Assignments to look at it, and not only was it gone, but the other was gone too. I went to Requisitions, bought one, it showed up in my inventory. I right clicked, selected Commission, checked Assignments and it wasn't there.
I'm down 3 officers: 1 store bought, 1 green, and one blue. I'm about to hit Lt Cmdr, need a 4th officer, and can't get one.
