I'm not going to have much time to log in to STO for the next few days, but I want to start collecting data for something. I and several other people are starting to notice that we're getting a lot of the same officers from Instigate Defection. I'd like to put our heads together and see if we can get a list of all the officers we've received from Instigate Defection, and just Instigate Defection, not from any other assignment. If they are being drawn from a small pool that isn't available elsewhere, we should be able to get a complete list pretty quickly. So, please list all officers you've received from Instigate Defection, including name, race, specialization, traits, and whether they are blue or purple quality. Remember these will always be cross-faction DOffs.

Here's what I've found:

Federation:

L'Ruk: Klingon Astrometrics Scientist; Emotional, Honorable, Logical, Spiritual
Bularet: Lethean Advisor; Aggressive, Stubborn, Telepathic, Unscrupulous

KDF

Meritta: Ferengi Security Officer; Aggressive, Cunning, Emotional, Resilient

Couldnt find most of them, but I'll look again (mainly interested in what the special Gravimetric Scientist power is on Begra, I've seen the rest)

They are from a pool... I can find Heretic's post if you want, but in short, they used to just pull randoms DOffs from the other side, but that was back when you could equip enemy DOffs... after that was fixed, you couldnt equip DOffs from that mission, so Heretic handmade DOffs to be used as a reward for the defection like missions

Anyway, I only have one:

No luck; wife hasn't a clue where she got him or what the mission was called that dropped him. She did, however, confirm that she's been pretty much exclusively in Sirius and adjacent sectors when she picks up her doff missions. She's been cranking them pretty religiously each morning and each evening, and should hit VA sometime this weekend.

She said that she'd have pointed it out to me (so I could send my toons after the EMH) if she had known it was so unusual.

Does anyone know if "ultra rare" bonuses are in addition to the regular bonus of that profession? (in this case a hangar recharge time reduction)

I just realized I actually don't know what any of the unique abilities are, which is another reason why I didn't put them in the guide.

As for stowiki, there are a few of them listed, but yes, not all of them. They do have a category set up for them, however. As they are added, they should appear on this page:

http://www.stowiki.org/Category:Duty..._unique_powers

I'll probably stick that link in the guide at some point, after it has more of the unique officers on it.

I was under the impression that they replace the regular active power, but I'm not certain.

They're instead of, not in addition to. They're meant to be different, but not inherently better.

I succeeded in a Establish Forward Base in the Rolor Nebula but the next colonial mission in the chain never dropped, since I'm only getting regular colonial missions there now. Do I need to wait another 20h to get Establish First-In Colony?

On a somewhat related note, I was wondering if the repeatable versions of the first part of the chain might put the next version on cool down as well. I can't remember the exact wording but the missions say something about reestablishing contact or establishing additional bases.

Also, is it possible that the star chart missions, studying various aspects of the region, security operations and the like might influence the success of the chain missions or if they are pretty much unrelated?

There are also missions available at ESD (or maybe they were on board missions that I just happened to check at ESD) which involved studying expansion in specific regions. Could those possibly influence the success of the colonial chain missions? Could they create a cool down conflict when trying to locate additional colonial chain missions? Or are they just there and basically completely unrelated?
