That leads to the QA team trying to get things fixed in the week prior to the next patch. It becomes a viscous circle at FE time.

Once the FE rush has passed you'll not see the weekly maintenance patches focus more on bugs rather then getting on the next needed thing, IME.
And do you think that will calm down after that? It is not. Sooner or latter they going to get more stuff into the game, after all they have to make you keep playing it.

If this game starts to drop in quality, because for me is starting dropping a bit just because of the technical issues, I would hate this to be one more Startrek game failing because of bad quality control. Now that Cryptic was bought by perfect world, one more reason to start pressing some issues even more.

This is just my 2 cents ofc...

Keeping in mind that the next FE will not be out for about 6 months I'd say that makes quite a bit of difference. Weekly patches can focus on bugs and minor additions - generally new C-Store items - rather then trying to get weekly Mission Content into the game. This is especially true now that the Server issues seem to be more under control now compared to where they were even 2 weeks ago.

Is this why functionality constantly gets blown to pieces whenever new content is pushed to the game?

you don't want programmers to also be testers. I was a programmer for 15 years and at some points was both at the same time and it doesn't work.

Well, what do you suggest they do? The Tribble Test Server is pointless, since they ignore all the tickets generated there.

Just spend money on the Cstore and everything will be fine.

Kerrat has been broken since beta. Has anything ever been done with it?
Cloak has been broken for 14 months.
The Voquv BOPS have been broken for like 5 months.
It isn't like they don't know it is broken. It is priorities.

It doesn't matter. Just buy the emote pack and yellowstone runabout and it will all go away.

Yeah, I really should just give in and drink the PWE Kool-Aid at this point.

Thank god Cryptic doesn't make console games. They'd be unplayable.

If they aren't going to pay attention to certain bugs then they should fix it where we can exploit that bug. For example, and bear with me because this is just theoretical. Everytime you experience a bug issue we recieve a free cardassian lock box. But it would first be inside a mystery box. j/k
