Poor Dlongu. He's no ordinary Research Lab Scientist; he's a Very Rare Senior Chief Specialist, cold-blooded and efficient, and thankfully resilient.

I say "thankfully" because that silly Saurian can't catch a break. If someone on the ship has a fractured bone or upset stomach, it's alway Dlongu. Not enough Explosives Experts for that suicide mission? Round it out with Dlongu, see if he makes it. Crew leave on Drozana station? Fat chance of Dlongu getting it.

I'm not a Saurianophobe. I don't even have any grudge with Dlongu. He just doesn't fit into anything else easily, and after a period of random recommendations for medical missions he has now become my go-to-guy for the horrible and macarbe. I picture him as a hold over from the animated series, or maybe the redshirt that just won't die.

Please tell me that I'm not the only one and others have that one Doff that just seems to get the short end of the stick, but becomes a favorite anyway.

I have a system engineer who always draws the contraband missions. Can't remember his name right off by the first officer always recommends him even though he's not in the right department.

I had a green Ferengi doff that drew all the medical missions but I must have gotten rid of him. I had tried to keep him because of those missions but he must have gone AWOL or got fed to the doff grinder by mistake.

I've got a very rare human botanist who hits the critical traits for a lot of trade missions. He joined Starfleet to study alien plants, but he spends every day selling warp coils or industrial replicators to civilian traders. And when I can't find a Ferengi for him to haggle with, I send him into extreme risk ground wars. An Andorian assault officer, two battle hardened Jem'hadar, Gornzilla, and the botanist.

I have a purple quartermaster with two matching traits that never seems to get recommended for those trade missions. Blues with only one matching trait always get picked.

I think she's the former drinking buddy (lover?) of my first officer. Note that I say former.

My Ferasan likes to capture Andorians. I don't know why, but almost all 20 of my prisoners are Andorian.

(Fed side)

I tend to get rid of most of the Tellarites as quickly as possible. That darn "stubborn" trait gets annoying.

Except I keep my stubborn Vulcan trader. Purple, cunning, and telepathic -- she gets first dibs on all the trading missions.

I don't really have any notable favorites KDF side yet. Gorn captain only shows his affection for crewmembers by not shoving their corpse out an airlock.

The purple Vorta biochemist you get from completing 4028. Between his telekinetic abilities and all his social traits, he's always either on various diplomatic missions or being used in various telekinesis experiments, everything except biochemistry really.
