I already have bridge officers out the ying yang. Well okay maybe the photonic officer as long as you can pick gender!
Yes, if I'm not mistaken the photonic officer is stuck as a "male" but you bring up a good point.
The android officer available as a vet reward was originally available only as a male android but Cryptic eventually changed it so you could select the gender and whether you wanted it as a tac, eng, or sci officer.
I'd be MUCH more likely to buy the photonic officer if I could pick the gender and whether it was sci/eng/tac.

Lifer since beta its never been so good! So now can everyone chill this game is going in the right direction
Well I need more Boffs and Shuttles like i need a hole in the head, would like to see "services" get a discount or Doffs. Having to pick one of these......................Photonic Tac officer cause they look bad ass on my bridge
As for the shuttles? Not much use for them. Nobody seems to do the vault shuttle event anymore and I have not been able to get in to that new atmospheric assault event added when LoR launched. Nobody does these shuttle specific missions in the PVE queue. Even when a bonus mark event is running.
There's a reason for that: both of them are fairly obnoxious in terms of damage and defence requirements and shuttles are light on damage and defence even when 'properly' equipped with various 'Big Ship' items.
