This past weekend some of my fleet mates and myself were trying to do the Hard missions for the tholians. The issue we had was that I was in instance #9, they were in #2. There was no way to get to the same instance, when we would try to get to a neutral one we were split up. It kept placing people in different numbers then where they wanted to go. It was actually a bit like chat roulette where you did not know who you would be with. It took us a good 20 minutes to co-ordinate together.
