In your post you stated that you did every mission assigned to you and this is the nature of the problem I am sure that if I spent all my time just doing what I was assigned to do I would be at the end of the game too. My point is that if you play an MMO like a stand alone game you are going to be disappointed every time all games have a start and end point it is what you do between that provides the enjoyment.

I have repeated many missions since I have a friend that has not done them yet and really enjoyed that time since I could fool around due to my higher level skills.

I due have to say I am sorry about the unemployment comment, but hearing someone say they can not find a job makes me throw up a little in my mouth since I have done work that I would not wish own my worst enemy, because I do not feel right about take money from others who are working.
To hit on the sore subject first, apology accepted. A lot of availability is down to where you are at. I have been turned down from a total of 67 jobs so far, and only five of those were close to what I used to do. The most recent was working part time in a meat processing plant cleaning up the... bad stuff. They told me I was overqualified and that they assumed I would leave the moment something better came along.

I don't want this to become a "woe is me" thread so lets get back to the matter at hand;

I have been running through the old content with a friend as well but that doesn't exactly fit the bill of new content. And to be honest new content was a very minor point of my post. They need filler missions. On more than 5 different occassions I leveled, ran out of missions... and stopped. I was either half a level or a whole level's worth of XP from my next level and nobody anywhere had anything for me to do.

That means I need to busy myself with exploring which is GREAT. But only if exploring is actually exploring. They need to understand that "exploring" in STO is doing one of about 5 different missions. So I can go do 1 of 5 generic filler missions to get the XP I need, but none of those add to the story line nor do they lend anything to the idea that I am actually furthering the cause of Star Fleet.

I believe that they understand that these exploration missions are required to level to cap at the moment, and I think that in the future they will provide the material required to get there making them completely optional (and to get the badges) but until then I feel it is important that we as customers give Cryptic positive feed back that isn't filled with crying, whining, and empty threats.
