# 1 Duty officers and small ships

So, as a Brel captain, if I only have 30 crewmembers aboard my ship, what happens if I collect my 31st doff?

The short answer is that, at this time, you can have up to 100 DOffs, regardless of ship.

Heretic has some responses to this in the following thread. You may also want to read the 2nd page for RP suggestions for how this works:

In the thread, Heretic mentions that he is considering increasing the roster limit based on total CXP or something similar.

To clarify, increasing the active rosters by CXP. The main reserve roster is planned to start at 100 and possibly be expandable via the C-Store.

From a 'in character' stand point: with the number of off ship missions, potentially, you never have all 30 Duty Officers on ship at the same time.... now where are all the shuttles on a small ship... that's another question

I can fit about 50 doffs in a type 8 shuttle. Bring a whole new meaning to "class 2 claustrophobia" .

I'm guessing that since the brel's got 30 crew and canonically it only has 12, the extras are 2nd and 3rd shift.

Can you really instantly swap out officers from active to reserve? That breaks immersion.

No, not instantly. You have to click a button.

How do you fit 50 officers in a Type 8 shuttle?

2 in the cockpit, 2 in the bay, and 46 in the pattern buffer!

I will just roleplay it off by having the reserve officers put into a pattern buffer, rematerialized through the food replicators, passed through the active roster's digestive system, dumped into waste extraction facilities, and begin the cycle anew until they're called up to active duty.

It's a very efficient system design by Cryptic; I withdraw my objections about it breaking my game immersion.
