I think this mission is bugged again. It took about an hour, but I defeated the turrets and cruisers, beamed up the weapons, and destroyed the device. I then warped out, and could not contact Starfleet to get my reward. I jumped back into the system, and had to start all over.
You are right, same thing happened to me. And i have read many other posts on the exact same bug. Killed the machine, Finished the mission. beamed out, but no reward. Clicked back and it started over. But if you look in your logs all the requirments are checked completed so Maybe Crptic will adjust or account accordingly, and fix this anomally.. lol
No problem completing it, but I did have one Klingon ship that was "buried" 3/4 of the way into an asteroid. I got as close as I could get, and found only the narrowest of window where I could actually fire on it.
Is there suppose to be a Negvar class ship near that thing(don't remember it in beta)? I kinda ignored it when approaching the Doomsday machine and thought I was out of weapons range, but as I was making my torp passes at the DM, it would seem that the Negvar just decided to come after me and pound the hell out of my ship. I tried to get the DM as fast as I could and got it , but not before the Negvar crippled my ship and killed my shields and with me being so close to the DM, it KILLED ME when it exploded I did get the mission complete chime but no reward
That really blows to have that happen when you just finish the mission
