I know what you mean. I've had some very simple missions, and some rather complex ones with puzzles and the like, and I think you will always run into people who don't quite understand what to do. I have one out there where you read a Romulan Commanders log and he blatantly says what the secret code is to get a console activated, and people don't seem to catch it.

What I've been doing is trying not to exactly hold their hand though tough areas, but place subtle suggestions that reading is important. You won't catch everyone, but get creative in your writing, and add something in the mission objective dialog like, "Review crew maintenance logs" or something like that. It doesn't really say, "Read this to open the door" but the average person will be like, "Oh I should read this because there could be something important in it."

Anyway don't get discouraged by reviews. Even the best of the best get 1 star reviews because you can't please everyone.
