Is it really that difficult (edit:for cryptic) to get the trophies for missions you've already done to show up? I really don't want to go back and do them all again and I dont really see why we should have to either.
We would have to look at the code and see if it is possible and only some of use would be able to do it. It all depends on what tags they set for each mission and if the tag to show which missions were responsible for trophies wasn't in when you did it, then no trophy. Captain Log isn't a possibility since it probably is just a text entry of your various missions. Might be possible to do a search for certain keywords, but supplemental logs make that difficult.
If I had to guess on whether these trophies will be retroactively awarded, then I would say that they won't fix it. Not because of some sinister plot to make certain player's lives miserable, but due to episode replay. Right now you can get a friend's character to run the mission with you and get your missed trophy. Episode replay will make getting these trophies easier and why waste a bunch of time fixing something that just requires a friend or future content when there are far more annoying bugs out there and a lack of content.
If we already have the accolade, do we just need to kill 1000 again to get the mantel piece. I am liking this Federation mentality, kill 1000, get a award, up date adds new award, kill a 1000 more. The Federation way!
My favorite mission is the one where you detect an illegal mining facility, old Federation, send an ambassador and talk, new STO Federation, go in guns a blazing, kill them all! Diplomacy is taking readings on a dead world or making worlds reliant on your hand outs.
