1) I have my BOffs as I do now.
2) Then I will also have duty officer assignments.
3) My BOffs can be duty officers, but they don't have to be? And being assigned or not being assigned as a duty officer will not affect them?
If that's true, what other resource of officers do I have to assign to a duty officer slot other than my BOffs?
Also, why would we keep "bridge officers" as a separate thing once the Duty Officer system is in place? One assumes a lot of the slots that would exist would be on the bridge...
the description can be confusing, seing as a "Duty Officer" refers to which ever junior officer got assigned duty for the day/weekend. It traditional has nothing to do with actual MOS(job) in the military. It refers to who is in command while the Commander, ( company, battalion, division, corp) is not currently on duty, such as going home for the night or weekend.
But the gist of STO duty officer is to give a strategic buff to your assigned crew
So the Duty Officer system is therefore NOT the system we've all been hoping for with which we get to assign our BOffs to specific assignments like CMO as opposed to them just being a generic science officer?
