For me, personally, the more I can do during the day during the week gives me more to do. I work weekends and have a 5 hour window each day from getting off work and being in bed for the next day. Doesn't leave much time for weekend events.
I got word this morning that this has been fixed and will make it's way to the game ASAP. Events should be running 24/7.
Thank you BranFlakes for your quick attention to this. That is great news. I really enjoy STO especially after a hard day at the office. Shooting Borg during the Defera Invasion Event at night after work is a great way to de-stress!!!
