Looks like Fed flight deck doffs did make it into this patch:
Finally, donít neglect the value of duty officers on your carrier. Special officers called Flight Deck Officers can grant active powers that improve your fighter functionality or allow you to launch fighters more quickly. Flight Deck Officers are a very valuable addition to any carrier, and the higher the officerís quality, the bigger the bonus!
Yes, there are plans to introduce Federation flight deck duty officers through several different means. There are also new alternate flight deck officer active roster abilities already in the pipeline.
Neither of these, however, will come out with the new carrier, but at some point after.
