the first task i was given by sulu:

went to pico system, recieved message that a mining vessel is lost in one of the
asteroids, told to find it and escort it back to space dock.

5 seconds later, inspite of barely even moving towards the nearest asteroid, it tells me that i've found it!

i swoop the camera round and can't see it anywhere, then i receive the next message congratulating me for safely escorting it back to spacedock!

this is when i realise that it had been found and escorted by a group of players that i had been automatically joined to upon arrival! i just arrived after they had already done all the leg work and was rewarded with a mission completion!

does this qualify as a bug or is it a flaw in the game mechanics?
