Not sure about that either. But if it IS implemented, I think those missions don't start showing up until you hit the 150K cap
My transfered character on Tribble, has Rank 4 on every category but Recruitment and Colonial. Despite that, my hightest is somewhere in the 130K range. I haven't seen any of these missions either, probably because I haven't hit the 150K limit.
Was named Trek17, but still an author.
Been playing STO since Open Beta, and have never regarded anything as worse than 'meh'. I have nothing against the game/devs, nor any particular wish to talk bad about either, or praise most decisions. Still, it's better to be positive than cynical.
