Bridge Officers (commonly referred to as "BO's" go on your bridge and are members of your away team. You can even give them gear and customize the appearance of most of them!
BO's do NOT work in fleet starbase projects.
Duty Officers (commonly referred to as "DOff's" are used for the DOff missions and Fleet Starbase Projects.
See the difference?
You're a sarcastic idiot speaking from a position of ignorance.
I also share the concerns of the OP because my flet is stuck on the same mission.
The project used to require very rare BOffs, and this was downgraded to white BO.
Apparently the way some white BOffs are handled in the background means this hasn't been a smooth change. But the "brought" BOffs aren't being accepted. Hopefully this will be in the next patch.
