This has happened on multiply missions. I know there should be a away tema with me do to the number of enemys. its seem it happens more when it take 5 mins to transfer to Char from ship . no away team sux and frustrating
I'm seeing this a lot more today than I have the rest of the week. Also as I have 4 or more bridge officers now, I don't have the option to set one of my slots to Security (I just tried), and as such I pretty much can't do ground missions anymore.
I found a work around that seems to rather consistent. What you do, is if you come as your ship and your team doesn't arrive, you click the "beam me up/abort" button. When you reach sector space, you should see a button on the right that says "continue <insert mission here>". Press that/F and you should beam down with your team.
I've had it happen before on later parts of a mission. For example, the Pirate Radio quest (forgot the name of the root quest) - on the second part, you enter the embassy. Well, my away team didn't make it, so I had to solo it and die like 20 times (groups of four or five aren't easy by yourself). But I finished it, and learned some ground combat techniques, too.
Anyway, I just heard about the /fillpetteamlist command today, so I'll give that a try when I get home.
I have this problem as well 90% of time when beaming somewhere. What happen his that I rematerialise as a ship, then between 5-20 secs iam human again but with no BO and no request reinforcement button. So what I do is return to sector space too and come back. Howerver, 50% of time iam human in space when I do that and if I wait around 15 sec the game crash. The sound is jammed in a loop and I must exit the game with ctrl+alt+del.
