    Some traits have 3 power levels: "Basic" <something>, then just <something>, then "Superior" <something>

    It's the trait level that matters not the boff color. A blue boff with "Superior" <something> behaves the same as a pink one.

    What differs between boffs is pink get two Superior traits, blue get one, green and white get none.

    For boffs you only use in space, all except a few special ones only get one Space trait the other 3 are Ground traits. So for Romulans a blue one with Superior Romulan Operative is just as good (in space) as a pink one. For Humans, there is only the regular Leadership trait (no Basic or Superior) so white boffs are just as good as pink (in space).

    The main reason to buy pink boffs sooner rather than later is if you want to teach them a bunch of skills using training manuals. You'll have to buy the manuals again if you recruit or buy a better boff later on.

    As a caveat, any manual you can get from the boff skill vendor is so cheap it's practically free.

    Yes, don't worry about buying the vendor ones again. It's other manuals that must be crafted (which is still pretty cheap), or rare ones you get from converting a bridge officer into a manual.

    The more important question is: where are our Benzite BOffs?

    There are some boffs that when commissioned will drop from Very Rare to Rare. Saurians and Gorns mainly.

    But except for Space Romulans and Space Nausicaans which can be Rare as well since you only need their Pirate/Superior Romulan Operative trait... You should aim for Very Rare boffs since they got 2x Superior traits. Superior Luck+Superior Aggression for damage dealers/tanks and Superior Creativity+Superior Surefoot/racial disable - Vulcan Nerve Pinch, Mind meld or something like that for healers/sci nukers.
