Just saying that the second part of the 2800 isn't really anything we haven't already done a zillion times in the past.
I'd disagree for the following reasons:
This is the first STO mission to have truly branching objectives--not just optional ones.
Puzzles done in this series outclass anything in the Breen Series: more involved, incorporated artwork, etc.
"City Zone" of Bajor has more usefulness post-mission than Defera still does today (i.e. not a lone Ferengi selling stuff).
