Really? Because as I've outlined below, the timer went off while in a group.
And people were only just getting together! No one had touched an epohh.

Although well, I might of touched a few when the timer started ticking down, obviously.
But then again, no one seemed to react the same way I did, so perhaps it was just me?

I've no idea. All I can say for sure is that these insect bunnies are more trouble than they're worth.

But 30 minutes? Really? I'm honestly curious...Because either you are picking up the mission and then doing it about 20 hours later, or for you it is somehow bugged allowing you to run it that quickly.

And it is the actual epohh tagging mission, right? Not just another small mission you can do on New Romulus?

(Not trying to sound rude or anything, just trying to get a better feel of what you are saying)
I never take anything to be rude on a forum, except particular developer views.

Now about that epohh tagging cooldown: all I know is that I believe I've done it about
three times, two times at the end of doing the other New Romulus specific mission dailies.
The first time I did it- I was interested in the epohh fields, saw the zone chat asking for
a group to do it with, joined- then I started the mission and the timer just went off!

So yeah, I freaked, figured I'd done something absolutely stupid and decided to call it a
night, having enough of the gaming riffraff. Got up the next morning (that was the evening
before) and loaded up STO to check on the old DOFF missions- then I saw Toreth, which
made me want to have another go to understand the whole mechanics of the mission.

Of course, because I just went offline mid-way into the timer there was a few seconds left
when I logged in, so I handed it in. It then said something like (00:30:00) for cooldown,
so I was like 'alright, just like the other dailies around then' (it's actually news to me it has..
what was it? 24 hours cooldown?) so I had my breakfast, came back, tried it out once more.

Did it solo then, but got sidetracked by a foundry mission ('Time will Tell' - which is quite
good by the way, I highly suggest it!) before I could hand it in. When I did give it in later
that afternoon after coming back home, it gave me another (00:30:00). So yeah, I did the
'daily roundup' of New Romulus to burn away the timer and then tried it again (why not?).

Yet again (00:30:00) at the end- with this time the handing in was quite assurably, prompt.

And well, that's the pretty much the end of the story, not to mention the boring wall of text,
my mindset, as well as partially my routine. You'll have to excuse my inept ability to make
summaries, but I suppose people like to dissect a larger amount of text at any rate, heh.

Now then, is that a better feel? Perhaps?
