Most likely these little 'bugs' are occuring due to the episodes being pumped out so quickly. They have a week to program, develop, voice, and bug fix before releasing it. That's a really short amount of time. And they still have to be tested.

That's not how these things are done. All of the programming, developing, voice acting recording and supposed bug-fixed happened months ago; they aren't in the midst of producing them right now. They have had at least 6 months to beta test it, and I find it hard to believe that the problem with the shuttle polaron array was missed in any decent attempt to beta-test the episodes, suggesting that the beta testing was insufficient or even non-existent.

But this touches on another issue related to the rewards of this episode Cryptic's complete lack of information about set powers. There needs to be a write-up, either in the game, or on the web site telling what each of the set powers does. What on earth is "Dominion Dynamics" do? A horrible lack of information on the aspects of the game is as much of a failing as the shameful lack of beta-testing.

To be fair, you get that information from Right Click > Info.

You Sir, have no idea how things are done. As in TV those episodes are premade month or at least a couple of weeks before aired. The story is written and set in stone more than half a year, or even a year before any work starts. Sure there can be minor changes prior to the release, but only minor.

I have yet to find any mention of any set powers that it's possible to right-click on, so that suggestion is less than helpful.
