Yeah I just found out about this today and i am not happy about it.
I don't mind repeating missions generally but that mission is Loooong and a complete pain in the rear end, I don't want to have to do it every time I level a half a dozen times to outfit my crew. But they are just about the only weapons in the game that actually look like Star Trek weapons. Worse still. You don't get the rifle plus a pistol. You have to pick it or a pistol!

There was a long thread about this a week or so ago; devs ignored it. I also raised the question in the March ask Cryptic thread; passed over again. They never gave any rationale for it, and it did basically ruin what were really nice items.

I suspect, given the conspicuously non-leveling ground weapon rewards in the last series, and the recent appearance of leveling Lirpa and Bat'Leth in the C-Store, that the motive was to remove all sources of leveling ground gear in-game and make all future items like this only available through the C-Store. This would make sense given the obvious popularity of these items, especially for leveling toons. The only ones left at this point are the useless Fed Type 1 phaser and the Breen/Devidian hand cannons (which are now unique; so you can't equip your whole squad with them).

Okies, I tried Past Imperfect again, nope the phaser is stuck at Lt. Comm. . Since the other phasers scale to rank on replay, could the hand phaser from Past Imperfect scale as well...please?

Yep, devs nerfed the scaling bonus of the TOS weapons from the devidian series. Why? So they could sell it in the C-store with the TOS value bundle pack like a new toy

I mean seriously, they give it you as a reward and take it away only so they hold it hostage and ask you pay money for it?
