OK, here's a new one...it's in the "Everything Old is New" portion of the storyline.
So I go through the portal back to the 23rd-century Drozana Station to figure out what is happening and to try to stop the "ghosts" from killing folks and frakking up the timeline. This was a really fun episode the first couple of times through with characters I ran early on, and since I had not played it for a long while, was looking forward to it again as I am leveling up my new Rommie.
Well, even though it is cool to see TOR uniforms, hear the sounds and, of course, run into and talk to "Bones," I forgot how REALLY long the episode is, and how tedious the running around for parts, cures, and so on can be.
Nevertheless, I had set aside the limited time I had this morning for some STO fun, and I ground through it all. Looking forward to the rewards (leveling retro phaser arrays with that good 'ol TOR sound!) and to my next level up, I finished the episode, and clicked the button to end it and "Return to [my] own time." BUT, imagine my surprise when I ended up staring at the panel to "Enter the Drozana Maintenance Levels," with the prompt that said "Begin: Back to the Past," "Travel to the 23rd Century!!" Thinking this might be some kind of update to the Romulan version of the storyline, I clicked the button and...WENT RIGHT BACK TO THE BEGINNING OF THE EPISODE I JUST PLAYED!!!
OK, I mentioned it was fun to go through again...ONCE. But did I mention the tedium and LENGTH of the episode?! Now, if I want to finish it and get the rewards, I have to go through it AGAIN! OK, NOT so fun...
This has GOT to be a bug, right...RIGHT? Anyone else have this issue?
Come on, guys - with all the MANY server downtimes and maintenance periods, patches, and updates of late, you'd think that a lot of these bugs would have been sorted out. And this isn't a blue phaser instead of a green one, or a BOff doing their best starship impression on screen - THIS WAS A WASTE OF TIME, something I didn't have much of today!
Seriously, in order to proceed, I indeed have to go back to the past - my own past - and, truthfully: "everything new" is really old!
