Toooo Funny. You captured my thoughts from the first time I saw a random "unknown" alien BO. I couldn't get "it" customized quickly enough.
"Yes - well, ..I have reviewed your application and I regret to inform you that I have no need for your services at this time. Oh? You noticed that I have no one manning my second engineering console? ummm.. They are on break. And I'll just have you beamed off my ship if your don't mind bye now have a nice day."
.. and where are the miniskirt BO uniform options..
.. and what is with the player height scale compared to what can be chosen for BOs? The shortest you can make a female human is about 5' 6". I was on an away mission with another captain and let him take his BO. When he beamed in, he must have been at most 3 feet tall - with 7 foot tall amazon bridge officers. I kept expecting him to ride on their shoulders or something. It was one of the funniest things I have seen so far.
Free unknown BLUE Science Officer wants to join my bridge?
YES!! AWESOME! MY FIRST BlUE OFF..ic...
...look at him.
He looks like a Ferengi f***ed a cactus. WTF is up with his head. And those eyes. JESUS CHRIST WITH A PHASER - his contact lenses must look like dinner plates.
Oh no. Oh NO no no.
I don't think I *need* your services, sir. Just train up one of my "not going to lay eggs in your face while you're sleeping" NORMAL looking officers, and be on your way.
.....am I a bad person?
Brilliant and I know exactly what you mean....dunno whether its familliarity or just something else but I always go for the ones I know...then again I got a Vulcan science officer called Sivak as my first BOFF so seemed right to keep the trend...nearly all vulcans there now with one freaky deaky...who I will put in a red shirt for the next away mission
