On two separate occasions last night I did not receive a quest reward item upon completing a mission. One was one of the Gateway missions and the other was one of the free bridge officers. I think another bridge officer one failed yesterday as well. As it is beta I do not mind but this is a really big problem come release and will generate a ton of GM tickets if not addressed before launch. Probably a server load issue?
I also did not receive a bridge officer after completing a mission. In my case, I forgot to select an officer the first time, cancelled, and then rehailed the admiral to complete the mission. The issue could be related to cancelling or to forgetting to choose a reward the first time.
I'm seeing this same issue. I have encountered it before and after the patch. All of my missing rewards seem to be blue ship items. In the four times it has happened, I haven't found anything that I am doing different than any other mission.
I do get the usual mission rewards, points and merits, but no item reward.
Actually, I was wrong. I did receive my bridge officer, I just didn't know it. I had to "commission" the bridge officer in the Assignments tab of the player/ship setup window. That wasn't obvious to me at all, and I didn't see any mention of it in the game.
If I recall, my first bridge officer was automatically added to my ship, so I didn't know there was an extra step.
I've completed two "Bridge Officer Requisition" missions since the head start began, and have yet to receive either officer in my inventory.
Just so you know they don't show up in your inventory they show under the assignments tab when you hit "U" and you have to commission them, but even then you might not of received one cause it is indeed bugged and some ppl are not getting the Boff's like me
