I received a BO from a quest. I accepted it, it went to Assignments, I looked at it (it was green), but wasn't ready to use it yet, so I let it sit.
A few lvls later, I got another, this one was blue. I accepted it, went to Assignments to look at it, and not only was it gone, but the other was gone too. I went to Requisitions, bought one, it showed up in my inventory. I right clicked, selected Commission, checked Assignments and it wasn't there.
I'm down 3 officers: 1 store bought, 1 green, and one blue. I'm about to hit Lt Cmdr, need a 4th officer, and can't get one.
What makes me sad is that it's highly likely we'll just be screwed out of them, punished for doing the head start. Cryptic wasn't particularly merciful to us in the ChO head start when we ran into bugs where we lost stuff.
