No one is forcing you to play Foundry missions. There's a lot of things I don't do in STO. I don't do the Borg STFs, I don't PvP etc. If you aren't interested in playing a story oriented mission then you don't have to play it. Do what interests you.

Edit:

If you want to shoot stuff that's fine I like to as well. Whenever the Mirror Event is active I grab a couple friends and we pew pew mirror ships for a while.

Check out my Foundry missions:
Standalone - The Great Escape - The Galaxy's Fair - Purity I: Of Denial - Return to Oblivion
The Defenders - Duritanium Man - The Improbable Bulk - [WIP] Commander Rihan

Meh... I saw him parked in Sector space near DS9. Incidentally as I was on my way to play the mission. But he was out in the open for everyone to see without playing any missions.

I saw earlier someone was rewarded with a Mk10 shield. MK10!!!

Totally worthless for a VA. Should be minimum Mk11 Very rare or Mk12 item.

Or, maybe the sensible option and do the same thing with the officer reports. Give the choice of 1440 Dilithium or a Gear piece with the minimums as above...

How about a "let's make a deal" choice? Do you want 1440 dilithium or what under box number 2?

With the wrapper, that increases the potential wrapper rewards to around 3000 dilithium. Still 3 hours of work, but I'd rather do that than scan rocks and travel over sector space to do a sat mission.

With a few other things like contraband, I could earn my 8000k mostly playing foundry.

Just to clarify for devs:

Daily Spotlight reward would be a choice:

1440 Dil or "what's in the mystery box."

while daily wrapper of 3 (1 of which could be the spotlight):

1440 Dil or "level appropriate gear."

Meaning if someone spends 2-3 hours playing 3 missions of the wrapper, then they get two of the following:

1440 dil; 1400 dil; Mystery box; Level appropriate item.


It might help to throw a lockbox key in the mystery box. Odds could be slim, but a 1 key per 100 mystery boxes might make a big difference.

Anybody else like the idea?

Sounds too much like double dipping, and that seems to be counter to their design intent atm. Re: B'tran

Well, BF did say that it's a typo that you can't use the spotlight daily for the daily wrapper.
