Missions and NPCs
A new daily mission, "Emancipation," is available from Ambassador Surah in the Orellius Sector. This mission gives you a quick hit-and-run ground mission to liberate Deferi slaves from the Breen forces at Zaria!
Mission return text has been updated for various missions turned in to Captain James Kurland and Admiral T'nae.

The position of NPCs in some ships has been updated, so they should no longer be sitting or standing in incorrect places.
The Mylasa System in the Mylasa Sector is now properly named Mylasa System (as opposed to Mylasa Sector, which would be almost as maddeningly recursive as this patch note).
Vendor System is no longer incorrectly called Vendor Sector on the sector map.
There are now 528 craftable items via Research (an addition of 408 items in this update)
Previous crafting experience in standard and advanced Energy Field, Physical Science, and Tech R&D has been merged into General Research up to a maximum of 1500 skill. See the full details at the top of the notes for more info.

KDF can harvest anomalies in space and on the ground now.
KDF can also capture anomalies by raiding facilities or freighters in new special patrol missions.
KDF turn in their anomalies to the new crafting station, located in the hallway just outside the shipyards on Qo'noS.
KDF crafting trees provide access to the same advancement possibilities as Federation crafting, although Klingons will tend to gain access to upgraded disruptors instead of phasers and have the unique option to craft Bat'leth melee weapons.
All Anomaly Data Samples have had their stack limits increased to 250, including Rare Particle Samples.
The info text on all Anomaly Samples has been updated to indicate which tier of items they are primarily used in.
The Memory Alpha crafting tutorial mission now uses a practice schematic and rewards a low-level schematic.
