I have filled a bug report and posted this in the bug section but I feel I need to post here too as this is quite a big problem.
The new screen that gives missions is really erratic. I logged in as my klingon and i had maybe 5 or 6 contacts with missions. then suddenly it changed to about 4 contacts (and even the ones who stayed had less missions showing than before. They keep decreasing until at one point I had no contacts showing even though they all had missions for me to take.
Sometimes they come and go and even have missions listed under different contact names. Unless you fly to the contact itself or log out and back in you cant take missions.
This really needs to be looked at quickly as its a bit of a mess right now.
QA has been investigating this issue and we have a software tech looking into it. If we can find the culprit, we'll put out an update asap. For now we've heard that logging out and back in can reset the list.
