What I have found so far. Both factions affected. If you have a boff slotted, "none" does nothing. If you have no boff slotted you are stuck with "none". Some people can zone, re-log, or switch ships to fix this while some get no results from those options.
my fleet kam has a universal LT, after swapping zones a few times, i was able to in a space map slot a boff in the universal station, and then in the station i wanted him to be in. it had to be in the universal seat first. that universal seat was at the top of the list, so that might have mattered more then that it was universal, don't know. good luck
I'm having the same trouble. I did the Doomsday Device mission which put me in a BoP. When it dumped me back out the the sector map I couldn't re-station my boffs.
I've tried switching instances, switching ships, exiting and restarting the game. Nothing has worked so far. Now I'm stuck, I can't play the game with no BoFF powers on my ship. The AI will tear my ship up.
I have one option left to try. I have a token for a new Captain level ship. I'll pick that up and maybe that'll let me put BoFFs on it.
*Edit: Got the new ship with the token. Now I 'm stuck with a new ship and no BoFFs. As you can guess that didn't work either.

Blah, blah, blah...
Sorry to be so negative, but **** it... How is this possible, just how can they make this game so frustrating, now I can only assign BOs to my old, not c-store, rusty PE. Or if I want to play in my Breen bucket no problem, but all my better ships are now unable to assign BOs...
Done the changing instances, logged out, quit, re-started, blah-blahed on chat. Put in GM report, then tried to create the ticket above. Just went to ticket to edit it and found that only the first sentence made it the rest was blank... So I don't know if this means that they aren't getting the complete tickets or not, but if so maybe it explains why no ticket has been answered since S7 (imoe)...
Confirmed, works in Memory Alpha Maybe it is a way to support crafting?
I just tried that. Went to the Memory Alpha system (not on the planet). And I could re-station BoFFs in that system. I don't know if this will work for everyone. But a big thanks from me for letting me know.
