So, you can in fact interface with the duty officer system from the interior of your ship (you can't, note, when your ship is in non-social system maps). We are also investigating special assignments from personnel around the interior of your ship. Not entirely certain that that answers your question, however...?

As I use it, "soon" (as distinct from "very soon") in development terms means, "It's on the schedule, it has a due date, that due date is in the next few weeks." Where it gets a bad rep is in that things do go wrong, schedules get changed, things sometimes don't go smoothly. The major complication is that there is considerable lag time between when a developer checks in a change and it goes through the pipeline to come out to the player-facing server.
