    • Breen: Reworked bonuses to tie in to a set concept of "Dominate the Breen"

        • Reduced Polaron Resist from 30% to 20%.
      • 2-PIECE SET BONUS

        • Reduced max frequency of effect from once every 45 seconds to once every 60 seconds.
        • Added passive skill bonus to Hull Repair skill.
          • This increases effectiveness of all heals, including the 2-piece proc.
        • Added passive bonus to Hull Regen rate.

  • Immunosupport Nanite Injectors now properly clear the "Assimilated" debuff from players infected by Borg enemies.
  • Modified Assimilation to fire off the final assimilation at a lower HP threshold.
    • This should reduce the frequency with which players will seem to be "instantly" assimilated.
  • The Nausicaan Energy Leech console is working as designed again.
    • Can apply up to 8 stacks of -1/+1 energy drain on a target.
  • Garumba Siphon has been updated so it can now be properly resisted by players with skill in Power insulators.

UI:

  • Added an auto-hail feature for mission hails.
    • It works only when you’re on a non-mission map and no hail is currently open:
      • If there is a complete remote-hail mission, it will automatically hail the contact.
      • Otherwise it will hail the contact for your next available mission.
  • All critical hits should now be labeled as such in the combat log.

Known Issues:
  • MACO 2 Piece set bonus is not functioning as intended.
  • Omega Engines are granting a cooldown reduction on all space powers instead of just the Quantum Slipstream.
  • Occasionally, some items in the stores are missing icons and text.
    • They work properly and can be equipped as expected.
    • Changing maps or relogging will update the items with the correct icon and text.
  • The Mask Energy Field set bonus on the Klingon Honor Guard ship item set incorrectly leaves teammates’ ships in stealth when they are firing.
  • Opening the Skills Window with your ship selected while in space incorrectly displays your character’s skills.
    • Select your character before spending skillpoints, as it does not work with the ship selected.
