Sector and some formerly "Shipboard" assignments are now available from these contacts
The selection is unique to each player, so if you go to your friend's ship, you will see a different set of assignments.
The assignments are specific to the contact - you will see Engineering assignments from the Engineering Officer, Military and Espionage from the Tactical Officer, etc.
Some assignments that required items - such as the items from "Children's Toys" or the turrets and torpedo platform schematics, or Tribble genetic engineering, or data sample turn-ins - are now always available from these contacts, assuming you have not recently done that specific assignment.
Some assignments have been completely moved to the ship interior, such as the Bartender and Chef assignment chains.
Some of the new shipboard contacts will allow you to complete assignments for hypos, critical components, regenerators, batteries, etc., although there are some level minimums for some of these items.
Players using the Jem'Hadar Attack Ship or Galor Cruiser can find the new Duty Officer contacts through a console on the bridge.
Modestly buffed hit points and damage of consumable turrets and torpedo platforms acquireable through Duty Officer assignments.
Consulate assignment chain rewards should no longer give Bajorans as the repeatable reward.
Except the Bajoran consulate assignment chain, and that one should now give Bajorans of the correct quality.
The repeatable assignment at the end of the DS9 species Consulate assignment chains no longer accepts Photonic Duty Officers.
The repeatable assignment at the end of the DS9 species Consulate assignment chains now properly have cooldowns.
Resolved several issues with the Facility 4028 assignment chain including improper faction rewards.
Resolved nine day long duration for one of the links in the assignment chain involving the fugitives from Facility 4028.
The repeatable assignment at the end of the "Children's Toys" Mark XII console chain no longer restricts the Duty Officers from being of the Medical or Security branches.
Added "Bartender" and "Chef" titles to Chef and Bartender chains for Failure and Disaster outcomes. These have been added to the repeatable versions of that step of the chain as well, so if you did not get it before you can do the repeatable and get it that way.
The assignment "Confiscate Contraband from Crew" always gives at least one Contraband.
The assignment "Confiscate Contraband from Crew" now properly takes up an assignment slot.
Adjusted the rarities and rewards of many assignments to take into account the changes in availability with shipboard interior contacts.
Many assignments in Personal assignment chains - formerly Shipboard - are now more commonly available, since a player only gets one chance every hour to find them.
Vorta Biochemist can now be on the Reserve Roster and need not be actively slotted in order to make Ketrecel White available for replication.
Adjusted upwards the rewards for "Analyze Data from Unmanned" Jem'Hadar ship repeatable assignment; the assignment was not using the correct set of rewards for an assignment of that length.
Starfleet and Klingon Academies now have Personnel Officer contacts who handle the periodic requisitions of Duty Officers.
These replace the old cadre assignments.
For a price in Dilithium Personnel Officers can also convert five Duty Officers of one quality into a random Duty Officer of the next-higher quality.
Some species-specific Personnel Officers also exist that guarantee the new Duty Officer will be of particular species.
ESD and Q'onoS now have Security Officer contacts who handle the redemption of Tribble Bounties, prisoner exchanges and turn-ins of Contraband.
These replace the old assignments that did the same thing.
Deep Space Nine now has a Ferengi Trader contact who provides a supplementary set of Trade Duty Officer assignments, seeing as ship interiors do not otherwise provide such a supplementary set of assignments.
Added new Medical shipboard assignments.
Changed offending Bajoran Male Counselor name after said Counselor's attempt to provide therapy to a human crewmember resulted in gales of laughter that were not able to be ceased until the Bajoran counselor fled the room red-faced.
There is a new dilithium mining daily mission available to Federation players above level 9 and Klingon players above level 24. Contact Isihl in order to play this mission.
There is also an hourly event that gives 50% more rewards for playing this mission in that hour.
