When do you start receiving Rare/uncommon bridge officers?
I am a captain/4 and i found a Bolian tactical officer in my bridge office assignments. I did not see anything that labeled her as rear or uncommon other than some blue text and a higher value in terms of Starfleet credits (600 vs 100). Once a gave her an assignment, there is no visual difference from her and my "normal" crew. Is this a rare officer or did i just run into a coloring glitch.
yes, that is a rare officer, green text is uncommon and purple text is epic/very rare. These officers are better than white (common) officers because of there innate traits (compare them and you'll see at least one 'superior' trait that whites never have)
Also, some uncommon/rare/very rare Boffs have very hard to obtain ground of space abilities that are quite powerful sometimes...hope this helps
