Doff team finds Alien technology requires the ship to come and extract it,many possibilitys here

First contact ! many possibilitys
Personally, I'd like to see more used the way the three in the dominion story arc were where they only take 10 minutes and you trigger them via an npc in the mission. In that case it is either 3 espionage missions for the klingon representative or three security and engineering missions for the federation representative. Very nice.

4) Gives a good DOff/Boff or fleet marks as a reward.
5) Gives at least 200 Colonial/Recruitment cxp (preferably more, everyone who does DOffs knows those are the biggest pains to get in large amounts cheaply).
6) Does one of those 5 and has none or Low as the casualty risk. (just makes it very preferable)
7) Does one of the above and doesn't take more than 20 hours. (makes it preferable, even though there are long ones that are very much worth it, like "Instigate Defection" and "Establish Long Distance Trade Routes")

And there are also a lot of good filler DOff missions, like recruitment missions from Klingon and Starfleet Academy, Fleet Mark missions from your Starbase, things like that.
I've only ever seen 2 klingon missions that give over 250 dilithium: undine changeling and deport colonists. What others give 300 or more? Or are you counting crits also? Because dilithium mining is "only" 250, for example, and eva suit is 50, jem hadar boarding sim is 50, etc.
