To help decrease the "lag" you are seeing, we are temporarily disabling the Foundry editor and being able to play Foundry missions. We hope to bring it back up ASAP. Thanks for your patience and understanding!

Same here, I guess it's time to move on and play something else other than STO.
If Linden Lab for Secondlife (a 3D virtual world system that's a very close similarity to STO, but user created content) can have simultaneous online users of more than 50,000 WITHOUT a login queue, and server lag of about 0.6% (most high lag is due to the users system and type of internet connection), then Cryptic can do it for STO.
Currently (at the time of writing this post) Secondlife has 46,345 users online.
I can't create new posts, because it says I have to have a PWE account, which I have, and I've been a member for over a week, otherwise I would create a new thread, next, when I play the missions, I constantly get disconnected from the game server, (it's not my internet connection as I have a dedicated connection just for STO, at 37Mb/s d/l and 10Mb/s u/l), then I get "can not get map names from map manager' to many times to count, then they added a login queue, and now removed foundry missions?
Agreed, my main source of Fleet marks is now gone as well. I hope the server lag issue isn't something that is going to keep the foundry down for days and days.
I'm going to assume this will be very temporary, as right now everyone and their transport accident created clone is logging on for the start of the Ambassador mission and to see what Q has for them now.

How is this even REMOTELY acceptable? A lot of people are trying to log into your game, so you decide to intentionally DISABLE one of its features? And one that you actually promote on a weekly basis and gets cross promoted on startrek.com. Just when I want to give the devs credit for a cool 3rd year anniversary they go and do something that is literally insane.
