Glad I'm not the only one that noticed it is now lacking a bit. It seem that the Klingon side has all the fun functioning toys while the Fed side gets a few, but then they get nerfed.
Oh well, hopefully its something they missed and they fix it.
Uh, this is totally untrue.
Heck, basic stuff like vo'quv's bird of prey launched vehicles were broken for a while, and my Varanus' repair drones are frequently inattentive. (Heal me now... any time you feel like it... hello?)
Also, it might be my imagination, but it seems that Polarize Hull I isn't doing as well as it used to. I've popped it a few times to break out of a Cube tractor in STFs and... sit there. For a while. It seems to be reducing the time tractored rather than just snapping it.
