On a fleet which employs the Senior Staff resource: When Malt'z ability is used to transfer crew (who have elite talents assigned to them), do the elite talents stay with the transferred crew, as those elite talents are individually assigned to a particular crew?

Correct, Elite Talent Upgrades are equipped to the card that provides the slot and follow that card wherever they go.

This would seem to contradict the ruling that talent slots are provided by cards, but assigned to the ship.

So, are talents assigned to the ship, or assigned to the cards granting the slot? And if the card granting the slot is discarded, is the elite talent lost? If the card granting the slot is disabled or time tokened, is the elite talent inaccessible?

It does. As we move forward with STAW we're trying to change rules to streamline them and make them more sensible. This is a change to that previous ruling.

Elite Talents are equipped to the Captain, Admiral, Crew, etc. that provide the slot. If that Captain, Admiral, Crew, etc. is discarded, the Elite Talent is discarded with it. If the Captain, Admiral, Crew, etc. moves to another ship, the Elite Talent follows. After all, the Elite Talent is a real world skill/ability of the person providing that slot. It would not make sense for them to suddenly lose their abilities by changing ships or for their abilities to stick around on a ship when they're no longer there.
