    I am a Lifetime Member.
    This is my roster.
    Away Team
    Captain: TAC Alien Male
    First Officer: TAC Human Female
    Second Officer: TAC Nausicaan Male
    Science Officer: SCI Human Male
    Engineering Officer: ENG Cardassian Female

    Space Only and Storage BOffs
    ENG: Human Female, Human Male, Photonic Male, Bajoran Female
    SCI: Human Female, Human Male, Human Female, Human Female
    TAC: Human Female, Human Female, Betazoid Female

    And I have three (3) empty BOff slots.

    While attempting to commission a SCI Orion Female, the game is telling me that I "have reached the limit of officers that (I) can have of this type". Can someone explain this to me? I have empty slots, I have no other Orions of any type, and I have only the Orion BOff in the Candidate Roster.

    I have tried to commission the Orion BOff from the inventory and from the Candidate Roster. I have tried while in space and on the ground. Obviously I have changed screens, and I have logged out and back in. I have exited and returned to the game. Nothing has changed.

    This is the Alienware promotional BOff, and was claimed through the C-Store.

    Yeah its a boff conflict, tbh it should tell you in the tooltips why it can’t be redeemed.

    It doesn't. It just says that I can't do it after I try.

    If it's a case of the Nausicaan and the Orion, I'm keeping the Nausicaan. I worked for that guy. Plus, he has some REALLY cool costume pieces.

    Thanks!

    The word coming from the Arc Forum is that the TYPE conflict is Non-FED. So we can only have ONE Non-Faction BOff?

    WTH, Cryptic?

    I agree the amount of work for Nausciaan boff makes it all the more worth it. Also I meant the game should tell you why you can't redeem the BOFF in the tooltips, instead of having to guess.

    Yeah this is silly. They are still giving away a Boff that potentially can ruin a player's mission progression in that they cannot complete the T4 Diplomacy chain if they already own a non-faction Boff.

    So luckily you already had the Nausiccan guy, so only the freebie is locked out for you. Were you a newer player who got the freebie first you'd not be able to later claim a diplomacy boff, even if you deleted the freebie one!
    It's ridiculous they cannot change that in some way. Any free item that breaks the game in some way should absolutely not be used for a promo item; it's just taking advantage of new players and spoiling part of the game for them in the future.

    Diplomacy BOffs can be reclaimed now, you won't lose anything if you can't immediately claim them.

    The code that only lets you have one of those at a time is probably what's messing up with the C-Store promo version.
