I am curious if the Devs ever liked a mission so much they made it part of the game?

no not yet and probably never will, for numerous reasons.

they have highlighted some from time to time.

You can see some of the missions they like here on the Foundry Spotlight page:

Yeah, there are no foundry missions made 'official' as in to be officially counted as STO canon.

The Foundry really doesn't seem to be much more than an afterthought for STO production. I'm not sure there's any real reason why they couldn't promote the missions to official status (although in doing so I think they would have to take any further modifications out o the author's hands). I just don't think they even spend more than a pittance of time even thinking about the Foundry.

In a way I'm not sure we'd even have the Foundry at all if its development didn't coincide with what was needed for NWN. Maybe I'm being overly cynical, but lately the only Foundry updates we've received have certainly been due to Neverwinter production.

I do think it would benefit STO if the best missions were at least made semi-official with specific rewards given, as the game lacks content. They wouldn't be official canon, but their play would be a little bit more encouraged.

Wonder if any of these mission designers could pull a Dr. Aeon. (he was a mission designer for another MMO that Cryptic once worked on that did such a good job, they hired him.)

I'm hoping that they do. I been working on a couple of missions for months that I think they might like it.
