Cannot assign bridge officers and getting really frustrated about it. What good is it to have additional ships if I can never switch from my first? I've been to another map location, entered combat, entered mission instances and changed instances. Nothing helps.
And people. Do you really expect they're going to drag people in over the weekend to fix this? Give them a break, they're people too.
Uhh, yes, I for one do expect them to drag people in over the weekend to fix this. I paid to play the game but I am unable to play with one 'toon because I can't assign BOff's. Thus I am unable to effectively level that 'toon. I know of people with only one 'toon who can't assign BOff's and the game is unplayable for them.
So, if the bug was unable to be fixed between Thursday after the maintenance and Friday night then yes, the weekend should be utilized to fix it. Why should we, the players, suffer from something that was no fault of ours? Many of us would have been happy to see the 'Q' Anniversary Event end on schedule (Thursday). None of us asked for the Temporal Ambassador mission to be extended. And we sure didn't ask for it to be 'updated'. Really, an extension means that the mission in its entirety should last longer, not with an alteration to the level required to accept the mission. As an aside, sure, you can still get the ship but not until level 25 now. What use is that? At level 25 completing the mission will probably level you to level 26 -- so you get to use the ship for 4 levels, perhaps a day or two. Not a particularly useful or fair 'update' in my opinion.
And of course they are people too, but they are people who have offered a service and therefore should be working to provide that service, weekend or not.
Anyway, I personally believe that nothing at all will be done until Monday at the earliest. That is when the Anniversary Event will, hopefully, end and then perhaps someone will 'fix' the bug, if the deactivation of the Ambassador ship reward and 'Q doesn't automatically fix it. But I, for one, am not holding my breath.
And I stand by the last statement in my previous post:
"I am totally disgusted at this cavalier treatment of a loyal player base!"

same boat here. I've scanned the whole post, tried everything that was suggested and still can't seat bridge officers. Older ships seem fine but my assault carrier has an empty bridge no matter what I try.
I have 2 hi lvl chars which I bought lots of BO slots and have a nice selection of BOs so the bug was easily fixable for these 2 chars.
However my low lvl (now 3x) char having the same issue and not purchased BO slots or xtra ships it was an entirely different story.
After the update me I just lvld and got my ship from the shipyard. I switched to this ship...Deleted my old ship and went to equip my officers in the BO slots. None of my officers would equip. I had 1 spare slot for a BO.
Knowing we had this issue in the past I didnt bother looking on the forums for an answer. I thought swapping ships would fix the issue. So i spent 500 zen on the smallest zen ship as I did not have the dil to buy with my noob...switched to this ship...switched back...only to have exactly the same issue.
I beam up to ship from spacedock...try again...noluck....leave to ector space....still the same...enter a mission..still he same....GO back to earth space dock...change to the 500 zen noob ship...cant equip there either...
Ok so we know the ships need engineers, science officers and tactical officers whihch all equip in seperate slots.
I buy 1 sci officer from the ge...that officer auto equips in the 1st free sci slot... i click on the slot change my sci officer to the officer I want to use and this swaps them around. I then put the new officer in the 2nd sci slot and swap that 1 out with my original. so thats th sci sorted...
I still have 2 engineering slots and 1 tactical slot to fill.. I have no more room for new officers to buy to switch them out.
SO i delete the science officer I have just purchased who is not equipped in any slot..go to ge and bu and engineer to repeat the process.
I open up my stations again only to see they are ALL EMPTY again after going through all the trouble to fill them previous. now I can equp engineers only to my ship.
The only solution that worked and was not very realistic in terms of gameplay was to delete ALL my BO's and purchase all new BOs as needed which then leaves the missions nearly unplayable as the missions at lvl 30 are designed for playes with semi decent skill sets and BO setups.
WHen you have at that lvl only the tier 1 skills ad no xp to put into them as you just lvld all the officers you had to delete it becomes nearly impossible to play the game furthe with that character without immense frustration and repeating of pointless battles you cant win due to no skills....battles you would normally own in like 10 seconds.
And then theres the 500 zen ship which was deleted as soon as I had my new offficers...a tier 1 ship I had to buy as I had no means to get a different ship when THAT was the problem as was the last time this issue arose.
