In some of the event queues,such as colony invasion and starbase incursion,the time it takes to get into these events is long.
A good alternative is to allow your own bridge officers to help you on that event mission,and not other players.
I would like to see all cooldown timers scrapped,so theres no wasting time,and we can get on with it.
I hope cryptic or a dev is reading this and will consider changing events in this way,as an option to all players of STO.
We used bridge officers in episode missions,so why not in some event missions requiring 5 to a team.

I'm all for anything that allows more Boff usage. It's been ages since any content was added which allowed for using your entire Away Team.

But queued events were meant to be player teams, not players with their BOFFs.

That's why they added Fleet Marks to Nukara and the Defera Invasion, so players can get Marks solo or in small teams.

I have had BOffs on 4 player teams in Fleet ground missions. I assumed this already existed as a failsafe against long queues after a timeout.

I thought that was a bug. I've had a Boff with me on the Deferi invasion map.

I think you completely misunderstood what i said.
There should be an option.
Queue up with other players or use Boffs to make up a team instead on 5 team events.
4 Boffs plus yourself. I hope thats abit clearer now.

If that were to happen it would completely kill the queues and team play.

Which appears to be exactly what the OP wants.

OP has a point.. ive sat in starbase incursion for like an hour waiting for people to join..

ended up leaving and watching tv..

im not always lucky to log in during the fleet marks events and it seems these missions go unplayed otherwise..


and yes they are made for you fleet. and yes i am in a big fleet.. but no you cant always fill the q with your own fleet members..
