The Mission are boring, because the tholian are very slow and they are to easy to kill.
the Things you geht from the Missions not really good, please make a special tholian weapon or a tholian set.....
You mean like they already have? =P

The missions are trivial and unimaginative. Only slightly less tedious than the Defera invasion, which this is mostly a copy paste of. Defera wasn't good design, so it seems odd they'd cop out and redo it again.
Quest hub grinds are quite possibly the worst of modern day MMORPG designs, there is no reason to copy that design.
The only redeeming value is that the Hard missions are at least available from the beginning and doesn't require the easy/medium to be completed.
I have finished hard interior mission, but when I exited the zone and returned to expedition leader, me and my teammates were unable to claim rewards. Also, tholians were firing very rarely, and were usually just waiting to get killed.
If you don't activate your EVA suit before stepping out into a Demon-class planet, you deserve what you get. This is Star Trek and it should reward intellectual thinking and common sense, and punish those who do not exercise either. In this case, insta-death upon leaving the safety of the zone-in point. STO does not need to dumb down things anymore than it does already. Dying in this manner is a learning experience. You won't learn anything about how alien worlds work and why your EVA suit is so important if Cryptic activates your suit for you.
The problem I ran into was that I was told to equip the suit. I had no idea I needed to activate it first, and promptly got immolated.
IF you aren't even going to try, start Foundry contests that are CLOSED to the general public and let the community drive the content with direction from the developers, then overhaul that!
Up until now, I've been an advocate in the belief that STO will improve given more resources. Then we get this...
Please make this grind end. I'm asking for a phaser to the temple at this point!
Are the skins of the Tholians interesting? The environment? The combination of the mining and combat? Sure, all of those a great strides, but beyond that its the same boring, cluster-[expletive] grind -- and that made me instantly want to turn it off.
Is that what we're going for? I've done that for the last 50 levels! No amount of new armor or weapons are going to make this mechanic more interesting.
A compelling Tholian story is what we need. An antagonist, or even a group of antagonists, with names and identities that are memorable and IMPACT the quadrant.
I'd almost advise you to quit development and force all your developers to spend some time in GW2 -- even GW1.
In no manner am I discounting the work that's been done, even if it seems like another rage post, but seriously, this type of content needs to go.
I'm already bitterly disappointed with the STFs, as when I finally got around to them, their continuity was so chopped to bits that its impossible to even tell in which order they go. How am I suppose to care?
I pray for this games sake that Season 7 starts to actually make this game come alive. I'm at that tipping point.
There really isn't much to be said other than what has already been said. Grind sucks, and I probably won't do this mission, the same way I don't do the Deferi one since I got enough Borg bits to build the quick remod.
All of that said, however, it's likely worth doing at least once.
Whoever did the character animation for the Tholians is brilliant. Some of their movements and their 'death' actions are hilarious. I don't know if they are intentionally hilarious or not, but either way, I found it spectacular.
And I don't want to be modded again, so I won't comment on the 'white goo' the Tholian Lt. covered me in.
I'm sensing a community agreement here...Cryptic these new Tholian missions are mind numbingly boring and a waste of dev time. You need to think up new, exciting things to do, not regurgitate the same old grind with a new skin on it.
