I was flying through space yesterday and entered the Zeta Andromeda sector, which I haven't been to in months. I thought to myself, "Oh I'll go over and check out this planet and... oh wait... I can't repeat the patrol, its gone forever. Wouldn't it be cool if you could go there and see Community Authored missions in every star system in the galaxy?
I don't want to lose the Genesis missions, a procedurally generated mission has its place, it gives me something to do to entertain myself and be surprised when I zone in. Sure I can guess the plot within the first dialog box, but whatever, sometimes its nice to just see what happens.
Maybe someday we will be able to write a Genesis mission by taking one of our missions and adding the Mad Libs randomized dialog that makes the system work.
