if you mean once a week, then no. someone mentioned that an old matrix online game did something similar, im not sure if thats true but generally speaking no other mmo to my knowledge does this.
if you mean more in general then again yes and no. most mmos have open worlds so the missions are all part of one giant map. ie kill 5 of this or take x object to someone across town and your doing it all on the same map as everybody else like its a real world
because of the instanced nature of sto, it allows the missions to be isolated on their own and creates the episode feel.
so its not unheard of but its not common.
