"The Longing" sounds like a great mission , if you can get to it .
It takes place in Gamma Orionis , and you have to use the Transwarp Conduit to get there ... -- which is only available from a certin rank (Capitain I think ?) .
Now , I'm a Commander , thus I could not use the Transwarp Conduit , thus I couldn't even begin the game .
However , my task mission log (that shows all my "in process" missions) puts this mission as available at "Lt.1" rank ... -- which makes no sense if you can't get to the game .
