The team and I wanted to let you all know about some important information about the Foundry and the launch of Season 6.
Currently, while we republish all missions made prior to launch, all access to the Foundry is off. This includes editing and playing. Once the republish process is complete, we will allow access to playing Foundry missions again. When we do, the ability to review missions will be temporarily disabled since we don't want Foundry authors to suffer from any possible decline in rating caused simply by the Season 6 changes.
We hope to have editing, playing and reviewing back up very shortly, and will provide updates in this thread as they become available. Also, we will be delaying this week's Spotlight on the Foundry until next Friday, where we will pick up again with the next spotlighted Federation mission.
Foundry authors: I made a forum post earlier in a week that gave a heads up on some important items -- you can check it out here. If you notice any unexpected issues that are not covered in that post, please let us know by commenting in that thread.
Thanks again and we'll see you in-game!

A question about dailies - you might want to call out specifically in your timeline WHEN we will be able to complete our "Investigate Officer Reports" again. My KDF is just new so this was one of the few sources of quick dilithium available to me.
With the dailies and the gathering the dilithium ore for the daily dilithium refining in the dumps today, because of this build. Are we getting some compensation for waiting for this build to be finished? It takes a 30 minutes to get on longer with no problems, but if there are problems in logging on, it could take alittle longer. All in all, this build should be done in the wee hours, than during the daytime.
Thanks for the update Branflakes! And kudos to you guys for not turning the reviewing back on immediately. I, for one, am quite thankful of that since I'm sure I'll have to make some minor edits to my missions to get them back to the way they used to be.
why? they are safeguarding the missions so we dont run into the problems we had before. losing the foundry for a short period of time is better than authors getting one stars everywhere and people wasting their time playing broken missions.
