Enemy Confrontation Dialog Spam
When running an 'Enemy Confrontation' explore mission, before each wave a dialog box pops up stating that we're about to be attacked. The first one I completely understand as it's part of the mission setup. Each one thereafter is unnecessary and ranges from a minor annoyance to a UI-based Confuse that only affects the player as my ship and the next wave are 11km apart and rapidly closing.

Please change the initial dialog to say that multiple waves are inbound and have the last boss wave bring up an 'Incoming Gloating Transmission' dialog, like you do with the Breen.

I agree with your grievance, but until a fix is provided by Cryptic you could do what I and I'm sure others have done. Change your HUD display so your mission message box is not in the middle of your screen and under options check the box that allows you to continue moving through a dialogue pop up.

Completely agree with the OP. In Exploration missions, I don't believe it is necessary to have that box pop up between each and every wave.

I also agree. If a crew on a real ship or aircraft pestered me that often, I would tell them to shut up. If they persisted, they would be fired, or throw out of the vehicle.

they've added a new features in some of the newer missions... (repair the satellite, guard the deuterium stations etc etc)

comments from your BOs about new waves and such show up not as a dialog... but as a special-looking system message.
much better and less intrusive.

but, it's probably not a priority to go back and change ALL the older missions to use this feature yet.
keep commenting if you want them to prioritize it... for comfort of life reasons.
