In STO, you have BOFFs of varying species. However, the species traits are only usefull on the ground. The only exception is the human and Liberated Borg BOFFs. The human and Liberated Borg species are the only ones that have species specific affects on a starship. I think the other BOFF species should have space traits as well. If all BOFF species have space traits, then it would be worth slotting bridge stations with BOFFs other than hman and Liberated Borg.
If you have a Klingon, then you would get a boost to the accuracy and damage of your weapons. If you have a Betazoid, then you would reduce the placate and confuse effects placed on your ship by an enemy. If you have a Bajoran, then you would get a boost to your turn rate and elusive skills of your ship.

The price is so low theses days for BOs with efficient that all my toons have a full bridge of them, it is especially cheap to acquire the trait on the Klingon side. Some help is better than no help so you might as well get them.
