Let me tell you how awful it is to be forced to join a team on a non-combat mission, then as soon as you beamed down, your only option is to depart the system because someone else has already completed the mission, then discovering you have to dtrop the entire Patrol The Vulcan Sector Mission and do it over
This is a mission to talk to miners. There's no reason for it to be an open team mission.
I despise being forced to join a team in the first place. If I want to play with a group; I'll join a team. Don't force it on me.
look in your grouping options, there should be somehting about auto-joining teams, make sure its set to no or off or whatever. your not FORCED to join teams.... if you make sure your teaming options are set right, lol.
