I finally got around to start liking the Duty Officer system, so I've been spending some time finishing up the colonial chains (down to 4 left)....
Thing is... of cause I am fishing for all the repeatable missions I can, once I am finished with each chain, and the refugees I keep getting keep me wondering this simple question... and that is all that it is:
Why exactly do they count towards the 100 DuOff's, rather than civilian passengers? Obviously they are useless on the ship, as they can't be assigned to real missions, and from a purely logical aspect, a refugee would not be a member of my crew.
I am not looking for you to change it, I am simply looking to understand the "why".
