So, my bridge officers that I have currently have been the ones that I was awarded as I leveled up. i believe they were (and still are) all "white" quality officers. I've dumped a lot of xp into those BOFFs to train them up and I've been pretty happy with them so far.
All of that being said, as I've done DOFF missions, I've acquired 5 bridge officer candidates through recruitment missions, four "blue" and one "purple".
Here's the question: should I dismiss my original high ranking "white" BOFFs and replace them with the 5 that I just mentioned? I haven't spent any more xp so I'm assuming that, as a Vice Admiral, I've got a ton of xp to spend on these new BOFFs.
