This is a bad idea for the Deep Space encounters. Especially when after 25 you don't get new missions until you actually get to the the next level, and in some cases 2 levels. I can see doing that if there was more content to do other than patrol, explore or defend which all leads to battle.....but not at the current state of the game.

Actually its an improvement, it does not stop you from doing the missions but now you will get the reapetable quests sooner. The cooldown has always been there however now it starts when you start the mission instead of after you finish it.

I don't care the cooldown for the exploration missions, I usually explore 2 star clusters in a row. As for deep space encounter I wouldn't know I avoid them.

There were no cooldowns at all on the defend missions until now.

before you could simply surf between instances to level up ridiculously fast on the encounters, something had to be done imo

I was unaware, I usually hit them up once and moved on. I was just going by the patch notes.

The moral of this story kiddies...do explore/defends in a sector where you have other missions!

Has a dev clarified on whether the 30 minutes is between each "X/3" portion of the mission, or 30 minute cooldown from completing the WHOLE mission and taking a new one? 30 minutes between eack X/3 would be a boneheaded change.

It's between taking the mission from the NPC, not anything actually in the encounter. Just how often you can take the mission.
