By request, I've compiled the following in-depth descriptions for the Duty Officers that will be made available on the upcoming Voth Separatist Duty Officers, as one of the potential rewards found in the Voth Lock Box.

There are a total of twelve Duty Officers - one from each of the following specializations, per faction. To assist with eliminating confusion on the Exchange, Fed-aligned and Kdf-aligned officers have different Display Names, even though they have the same Active Roster Ability.

Shield Distribution Officer:
- FED: Hogal Gavne // KDF: Havla Leereg
- Region: Ground
- Description: This officer has a chance to cause your Force Field Dome to emit seismic tremors that will knock nearby enemies down.
** 50% Chance: Knock Down all enemies within 10 meters of your Force Field Dome.
- Traits: Congenial, Efficient, Honorable, Stubborn, Free-Thinker

Armory Officer:
- FED: Rathul Haken // KDF: Ganna Thuk
- Region: Space
- Description: When using Subsystem Targeting beam attacks against enemies, you have a chance to knock a second random subsystem offline. This effect cannot stack with special effects of a phaser attack.
** 20% chance: Disable an additional Subsystem for 3 sec
- Traits: Honorable, Resilient, Stubborn, Tactful, Free-Thinker

Tractor Beam Officer:
- FED: Graga Mal // KDF: Falla Okev
- Region: Space
- Description: Having this officer equipped replaces the Push component of your Tractor Beam Repulsors with a Pull component of 50% of the original Repel magnitude.
** Changes your Tractor Beam Repulsors from a Push into a Pull
- Traits: Congenial, Honorable, Resilient, Stubborn, Free-Thinker

Sensors Officer:
- FED: Fova Gadel // KDF: Gern Kul
- Region: Ground
- Description: This officer allows your Target Optics ability to reduce enemy targets' Damage Resistance Rating.
** Damage Resistance Rating reduced by 20 for 15sec.
- Traits: Efficient, Honorable, Stubborn, Tactful, Free-Thinker

Explosives Expert:
- FED: Halla Vuk // KDF: Vun Kralla
- Region: Ground
- Description: Your Exothermic Induction Field has a chance to fire a molten projectile at a nearby foe. This chance is checked every second while this Duty Officer is on active duty, rather than just once at the time the ability is activated.
** 50% chance per second for molten projectiles.
- Traits: Efficient, Honorable, Resilient, Stubborn, Free-Thinker

Diplomat:
- FED: Orotha Venna // KDF: Hathen Grek
- Region: Space
- Description: The recipient of your Engineering, Science and Tactical Team abilities gain a chance to drain Weapon Power from attackers when struck with energy weapons. The amount of drain can be increased with Flow Capacitors but is subject to the target's resistance.
** 25% chance: -25 Weapon Power to Attacker (max once per 5 sec period)
- Traits: Congenial, Honorable, Stubborn, Tactful, Free-Thinker

For anyone that may be unaware, the "Free-Thinker" Trait grants an additional chance for Critical Success on nearly all Duty Officer Assignments found on contacts throughout the Solanae Dyson Sphere.

Imagine two teams of FAW cruisers spamming beams at each other with that diplomat enabled. Heh ... seems like they might be doing a bit less damage in the future.

The Sensors and Explosives officers seem pretty cool, looking forward to trying those.

Man that diplomat...

That really has me considering swapping my Vesta from a cannon build to a beam/FAW build. I run a drain boat with maxed out flow caps. Blargh, choices!

I hope you're not tired of complaints about griefers in STFs. That tractor beam officer is going to elevate it to pro-level.

Thanks for taking the time to compile this list for us. The duty officers will certainly add a few interesting effects to abilities. That tractor beam officer looks particularly appealing. On the topic of the Target Optics duty officer, does the debuff apply to the nearest three targets in the forward facing arc, similar to the expose chance effects on the ability?
