  • When an enemy is a higher level than you, the space UI tells you the level difference with a number next to their name.
    • That number has been changed from red to orange to avoid appearing as part of the target's name.

I know that, but dan said that it should have been fixed in this patch, which was what some people have been wanting fixed since the bug was brought to the devs' attention.

This needs to be increased. Already bad enough that you award a measly 10 Romulan Marks for any daily mission on/around New Romulus. You're gonna start awarding FIVE Marks? Even if you increase both easy, medium and hard rewards, by 100% (10/20/30), that would still be rather low. Patrol daily in Tau Dewa awards 60 Marks. A Borg Elite STF can award upwards of 100 Marks (during event hour).

10 for easy, 25 for medium and 50 for hard does not seem to me to be that much of a stretch. You don't want the rewards so low that noone will run them.

From the Systems patch notes:

The "Tal Shiar Deflector Dish" received from the mission "Enemy Action" now properly allows for the activation of Science abilities.
