This is most annoying, every time I requisition a new BOF, choose not only based on skills, but mainly on race and sex. Now, my problem is that what the BOF is labeled is NOT what you get when you purchase them. I attempted several different times and each time gave me something different.
Most notably, I attempted to requisition a Ferengi and a Klingon, both ended up as the "unknown" alien type species with generic bland features and purple/bluish skin.
Now, I thought maybe this is because Ferengi and Klingon are not in yet as BOF's and they are just placeholders, so I tried with a different species known to be in game.
I bought a Vulcan Male Science Officer and instead received an Andorian Female Science Officer.
This is really annoying and needs to be fixed fast. buying random race/sex combinations for BOF's is bad.
The Tactical Officer I received in the Tutorial is still a Female Andorian.. the Two Officers I've received from Missions afterwards (Patrol Vulcan Sector and Azura Blues) both ended up being Random Alien males (that look like Identical Twins go figure).
So, I wasn't imagining things. During tutorial I chose vulcan science officer and later when on Vega I noticed that he wasn't vulcan anymore. More of unknown bluish something. Sex hasn't changed though.
