I hope this means that FED/KDF players can queue together against the Mirror Invasion.

Hopefully this means that it's being revamped. 5 man ultra difficult event please.

I am disappointed by this change. Cryptic should have taken the que from the Playerbase, that they weren't trying to bypass the restriction in ship type because of a desire to cheat, but because they want to pilot their proper starships and not flip flop around in a shuttle.
Especially in the light of the fact that you have to run the shuttle event a minimum of 96+ times for a full MK12 Very Rare set.

While the story mission for the Vault is limited to a shuttle, it could still be changed and as could the calendar event. The Vault is after all wide enough to accommodate the larger Reman/Romulan starships, meaning there is no logical reason to restrict players to shuttles. The shuttle missions are at best a tedium best avoided for combat based missions and should be restricted for diplomatic or survey based mission content.
