Why did you move the stf gear to DS9? That sounds like a pain.

Sorry, the Borg invasion is 3 times a week? You mean 3 one hour/two hour segments in an entire week or is the attack occurring over longer hours.

If it's a day I can understand it but a week? No, not good. Please don't limit major content in this way, or force people to play content at specific times. The other events are small and cycle quickly. The ground invasion is a big deal. Don't limit it off.

They were working fine. However, we let you replay missions right out of the journal now so having it on your bridge became superfluous.
