Because of his Command discount he's actually better at launching torpedoes than the Weapons Officer, because he needs zero cards to do so. Not having to draw and/or transfer a card is worth more than the single action discount the WO gets. The soldier can sit in his room, launch a torpedo, and clear two entire rooms of aliens without spending a single card.

Our group strongly feels that the Engineering and Command discounts on those two characters should be switched. Not only does this make the Weapons Officer actually good at what he's supposed to be good at, but it makes sense that an OFFICER would have higher command than a soldier.

You're welcome to house rule it that way, but the solider and weapons officer are fine the way they are in my opinion. That Engineering discount means you can repair the Torpedo Tube for free whenever it goes down, and can actually work toward winning the game too.
