Noticed a small but annoying accolade change to the mission "Stranded in Space". You get "Mining Survey" from flying through the hole in the large asteroid but now this only works before you board the Azura. When you return to system space, to kill off the final Orion ships, that accolade doesn't trigger and I think I discovered why. Although the map looks identical to the one from the beginning of the mission, there's now a small moon present close to the big asteroid. I therefore assume this part of the mission now uses a different map which doesn't have the accolade trigger point. Not a big deal but for now it stops a KDF toon from grabbing the accolade, which worked 8 weeks ago. Did anyone happen to notice when this change was made?
EDIT: Just to clarify. I brought a virgin FED toon through the first space part without picking up the accolade. Then tried to pick it up during the final space battle instead but it didn't pop. Dropped the mission and reentered and could of course pick it up during the first space part as always. That's when I noticed the missing moon on that map...
EDIT2: I got confirmation from other players that they no longer can pick up the accolade on their Rommies which also need to get it from the final space map. I could also confirm that two different maps have been used at least as far back as Season 5 (probably from the start). Conclusion is that the second map got its trigger point for the accolade removed in one of the patches over the past 8 weeks. It's another sad day for us accolade hunters.

I've been playing with a way to track my Federation toon's accolades I've earned and still need (at least until PWE or someone else comes up with an automated way.) So I've come up with an Excel 2013 file that I'm still working on.
Unfortunately, since I'm using data validation lists to determine if one has the accolade or not (or just not eligible for it due to it being broken/retired) and filters, you'll have to download the file and run in locally just to see the functionality. You would have to copy it locally anyway to actually use it to track your accolades.
It's still really rough and I need to put in a lot more descriptions, episodes & mission references, etc. (like Fluffy's list,) but thought I'd share it to see what others thought.
27 Jan Edit: I really hated how the drop down box was working, so I changed it to a data validation list. This allows for sorting and filtering, so you can now filter on accolades you don't have. I'm thinking of adding some conditional formatting to set a color for status.
Looking for comments, suggestions, etc.!

I'm in the process of catching up on accolades for my Rom Character and am stumped with Dreaded Dreadnought (and likely others down the track ) I see from other posts and literature that a FED/ROM character can get this, presumably when teamed up with a FED, but that's where I get stuck. I can team up with a Fed for the first part of the mission on Vulcan, but after leaving Vulcan and transporting the Ambassador to the P'Jem system, my Rom doesn't have the option to enter the system.
I presume this is because the P'Jem system is not normally available to explore unless part of a mission, and since my ROM doesn't have the mission, he can't enter.
If a FED/ROM is able to get this accolade, then what am I missing?
If memory servers and they've not changed it, try doing the space part with your FED and then when the Fed has the prompt to get the beam down option your FEDROM will too.
Thanks for the reply, though I tried that and it didn't work Also tried a number of other missions such as stranded in space and my FEDROM can't get on to those either. oh well, so much for accolades on my FedRom. Cheers again for the reply though
Thanks, I did figure out where Saurophobe was. The named ships spawn low on the map in the middle of the two towers there (Halfway between mid and top of map on the rightmost side). If you blow up all 3 ships fast, named ships keep spawning.
