When is this due out roughly? With the release of season 7, early November is it?

I no longer follow these forums closely enough to know what has and has not been ruled out - but I don't see a down side. If the short versions remain, what do they lose by adding the old ones back?
Any notion of 'story' in the current STFs is rubbish. Story was tossed out when they cut them down to 15 minute summaries.
Yeah, I miss the early ones too. They were harder to get together for but so much more satisfying. The new ones are good, but they lack the narrative elements.

After 1,000+ days in this game, I do miss the "retro" STF's my fleet was so good at them we could get all 3 done in about 4 hours, and those who know about the "retro" stfs that was no easy task. But I love the Idea if this STF and who knows the space part might come later as defeating the Queen has to set off a protocol to respond so I don't count out a future Space stf, it might be the hardest one yet. Im crossing my fingers wishing lol.

When they (Infected, The Cure, Khitomer Accord) were originally developed, they were one mission with space and ground portions. When they were remastered, space and ground versions were made. Into the Hive is about infiltrating the Unimatrix and confronting the Borg Queen -- we developed it to take you right into the heart of the action.
I'ts supposed to a small strike force right?
So... How do they get there again?
Seemed like a great opprotuniy for a Shuttle STF was missed.
Speaking of rem to nudge the team on gozers Children of Khan arc every so often please.
^^^ Most definitely a +1 to this!

A suggestion: Put the original STFs back in (with tweaks to playability...) in *addition* to the current iterations, so that fleets and organized groups can still experience the story as they were originally intended.
Perhaps the longer versions could offer better rewards commensurate to their higher level of difficulty. Everyone wins in this scenario. You already have the content, and the only thing that needs to be done is for them to be connected back to the PVE queue system.
I miss the originals as well. They actually offered a challenge on both space and ground fronts and this is gone for the most part with the butchered versions. Terra remains forgotten with Mk X drops at best and busted as well! It's such a shame to have missions so little played and just ignored by the Dev team when a few fixes and updated rewards would give players an interesting and challenging mission to do.
The whole Dev Blog sounds like a recap of Voyager Endgame! I'm not sure yet if this is a good or bad thing. If it didn't work once. Why will it work this time? Will Admiral Janeway be briefing us for this STF? Persoanlly, I can think of no one better to brief anyone on how to take the fight to the Borg.
