Something where interaction was necessary. I'm all for hiding but when you can stand out in the open and light yourself on fire and the patrols won't even see you is when it's kind of 'meh'. That kind of cardboard cutout backdrop detracts from the awesomeness of the mission.
And did someone say that the engineer side mission was to hunt? So, tacticals gather firewood and engineers hunt. Um, what? What was the science side mission, harvesting pelts from defeated Sehlats and making warmer clothes?
It might have been interesting to have to evade more then just one shuttle - and maybe also a chance to fail it. (Forcing you to fight transports or creating some kind of diversion - say, the Shuttle lands, and you can do some sciency trickery to get one of those worms to attack the crew...
But there is only so much that you can fit into one episode, especially if you're on a timetable. They certainly used their alloted time well for this episode.
