This issue is being addressed. If you look at the ? next to your minimap and report the bug, you will notice the ticket being submitted by many others and it being acknowledged by Cryptic and worked on by the devs.
Thank you for contacting us about your missing Bridge Officer. Normally, Bridge Officer Candidates will appear on your Assignments screen. You may reach this screen by pressing U to open up your Status screen, and selecting the Assignments tab. You can ask a candidate to either join your crew or train the existing crew, by double-clicking on their description on the right.
If your Assignments screen does not show any available candidates, and you still have not received your new Bridge Officer, please update this ticket with the following information:
- Did you earn this Bridge Officer Candidate from a mission, or purchase them through Requisitions (a vendor)?
- If this was a mission reward, which mission was this for?
- If this was a mission reward, did you make sure to select a Bridge Officer before closing the Mission Complete dialog?
- If this was purchased from Requisitions (vendor), which NPC did you purchase from, and where?
Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.
To which I replied with the exact specifics: mission name, mission contact, and specific bridge officer reward selected.

To which I replied asking if I would be manually awarded my missing BOs via GM, as the fault lies with Cryptic.
