I beam down (usually with my lower ranking BOffs assuming I'll be only scanning stuff)
I end up with a mission where I'm liberating a colony from the Romulans. Somehow these missions are swapping once I beam down.
As long as you get DXP, it's a diplomatic mission, and as others have said, I wish this would happen more often as it's nuts to think NOTHING unexpected can happen, even on a diplomatic assignment, and the Star Trek TV series episodes themselves are rife with such examples.
