I for one am tired of getting jumped by a dozen ships the instance I zone into one of these and destroyed.
I have repeatedly reported this and asked for a fix since beta with no result.
Until Star Trek Online wakes up and fixes this problem I urge everyone to boycott Deep Space encounters. If you get sucked into one exit to sector space immediately.
I understand people think these attacking ships were placed there to stop AFK'ing. I don't really care about that, but I do care about being constantly jumped when I try to participate in one of these and if a boycott is what it's going to take to get this fixed, then I'm all for it.
