I agree with everything you wrote, but I must say that the sims after missions are too late for me, since it’s over 1am at the time.
Also, during the initial sims and the mission, I’m always on the Weapons, since that’s my primary and I’m very good at it (it may be immodest of me to say so, but all the captains I’ve served under have said so). Therefore, I don’t think it’s beneficial for anyone to put me on a station that I have little experience with. I suppose this is the case with some other players, as well.
The only way of fixing this that I see are games outside of normal shifts or forcing different stations during the initial sims. Thoughts?
