I feel that Borg Deep Space Encounters should count towards regular Deep Space Encounter Accolades.
"Sir you forget yourself. Shut up"
But in all reailty I'm not sure if this was programed as a DSE or as an Event. I'm kind of hoping that this is the first of a new event system that will bring more randomness to the game in the future. It could require new code, which for an accolade may not be a top priority.
Well Sthal said its a 4 month event and going to be a permanent somewhere. But programming or not, still it would be nice to have DSE accolade numbers count for these, especially since people hardly bother with normal DSEs.
