Deciding which DOFF to get from Ferra isn't always the easiest choice, not because there aren't actively good or bad choices, but because we have to compare the jobs available with our existing crew, and then with their traits, and determine if the DOFF is worth using or not. For many of us, it isn't readily apparent which DOFF traits are good or bad for a given job type. Hence, a guide.

Criteria:
I consider there to be 3 fundamental uses for a DOFF
(1) Its listed profession and jobs that call for that profession
(2) Supports
(3) Other jobs which are (relatively) easy to hit 0% total fail chance, and thus for which you will actively want DOFFs who do *not* match the chosen profession to maximize crit chance. (Support is actually a specific example of this, but its a general enough want it deserved its own number).

With regards to 1, each job has desirable and undesirable traits, especially if you focus on 'worthwhile' assignments. I do not endeavour to give such a general guide here, but paying attention to my recommendations below will certainly lead to insight on the matter.

With regards to 2, the necessary traits are Efficient Peaceful Tactful Teamwork and NOT Aggressive Unruly. Profession of the DOFF is irrelevant.

With regards to 3, the notable assignments one might concern oneself with are as follows:
-Military Offensive (Aggressive Resilient Teamwork; -Peaceful)
-Additional Military Base (Efficient) (Wants TAC, ENG, quartermaster, any, any)
-Listening Post (Efficient Teamwork) (Wants Technician, Astrometrics, any)
-Infiltrate Orion Syndicate (Telepathic Unruly) (Must be Cunning non-Civilian)

There will invariably be other assignments which meet this criteria, but these are the more notable. Since Additional Military Base only wants one trait that is in abundance among Support DOFFs, we're going to ignore it.

Analysis in next post...

-Evaluation: Bad Biochemist (Logical ruined by Stubborn), Good Support (2 traits)
Kerm Botar: Congenial Honorable Peaceful Stubborn Entertainer
-Evaluation: Good Entertainer

-Evaluation: Good Security Officer
Hechiae: Congenial Efficient Spiritual Teamwork Doctor
-Evaluation: Good Support, Good Doctor, Good Addtl Mil Base
Ennari: Emotional Peaceful Tactful Telepathic Diplomat

-Evaluation: Good Warp Core Engineer

Clear Choice: Zocheav
Might also take: Vizith Klorn, Gerrato

==T4 Espionage==
Daprirn: Efficient Stubborn Teamwork Unscrupulous Systems Engineer
-Evaluation: Potentially Great Syst Engineer (i don't recall any syst eng jobs punishing stubborn, but that trait is a risk), Good Listening Post, Good Support
Gailon Mazzeka: Congenial Tactful Teamwork Telepathic Diplomat

Clear Choice: Neurk
Might also choose: Kellarno

==T4 Medical==
Rrisrak: Aggressive Eidetic Honorable Teamwork Botanist
-Evaluation: Good Botanist
Nequi: Congenial Emotional Seductive Telepathic Counselor
-Evaluation: Great Counselor, but still just a counselor =P
Zeestou: Honorable Logical Spiritual Teamwork Nurse
-Evaluation: Indifferent Nurse

-Evaluation: Good PWO
Sugrinn: Congenial Cunning Teamwork Unscrupulous Quartermaster
-Evaluation: Great Quartermaster, Good Listening Post

Clear Choice: Sugrinn
Might also choose: Tion Sorahn

A little explanation here - Tion Sorahn is actually worth more for Mil Offense than Zasrassi, because assault squad officers will *reduce crit chance* after fail goes to zero. Also, getting good assault squad officers is easy off Betreka Support, so you won't actually be needing good assault squad officers.

Similiarly, C'Tarrsa is a great PWO, but Hunter Ikrin (from Khazan Support) is Agg Eff and you'll have piles of him.

==T4 Recruitment==
Nwanaxa Morowni: Congenial Emotional Telepathic Unscrupulous Systems Engineer
-Evaluation: Indifferent Systems Engineer

Andatti: Cunning Logical Stubborn Unscrupulous Quartermaster
-Evaluation: Good Quartermaster
Furetta: Congenial Emotional Tactful Teamwork
-Evaluation: Good Advisor, Good Support

Decent Choices: Szyeichwa, Andatti, Furetta, Ahnzar Koel are all plausible. Likely prefer Andatti.

-Evaluation: Indifferent Astro Sci
Tognirra: Congenial Cunning Emotional Peaceful Developmental Lab Sci
-Evaluation: Indifferent Dev Lab Sci

-Evaluation: Good Support, Good Grav Sci
Rontedda: Eidetic Emotional Teamwork Telepathic Research Lab Sci
-Evaluation: Great Res Lab Sci

Clear Choice: Rontedda
Might also take: Kamugtai, except Demera (EB Support DOFF) is strictly better

Sucnir: Congenial Efficient Honorable Resilient Quartermaster
-Evaluation: indifferent QM, Good Addtl Mil Base
Achik Trovil: Congenial Emotional Peaceful Teamwork Advisor
-Evaluation: Good Advisor, Good Support
Foeixache: Cunning Seductive Tactful Telepathic Trader

M'relna: Aggressive Efficient Emotional Stubborn Security Officer
-Evaluation: Useless
Kerig: Cunning Unscrupulous Assault Squad Officer

Kooweiach (dev) and Szyeichwa (rec) make an excellent instigate defection team, they're both specializations that boost success and both have 2 traits that boost crit.

Ditto.

Just realized that there's not a single bartender on this list.

Actually, anyone flying a kittycarrier should hold off on choosing a purple doff from Military. Fed Flight Deck Officers are in the pipleine, according to the devs. If Military is itemized Fed side the way it is for the KDF, one of the choices here will become a very rare Flight Deck Officer.

This will probably remain the best option for getting a very rare FDO for a good many people without deep pockets of EC's.

There will, in addition, be a couple of faction-specific chains that award a purple Flight Deck Officer at the end of each; the Flight Deck Officer has one of the new Flight Deck Officer active roster powers.
