Just wondering why if an individual Foundry is so bugged as to be unplayable neither the authors or Cryptic seem do anything about it? For example there's one called "Yesterdays Doomsday" based on the Doomsday Machine in which at the start you are supposed to enter dialogue with a hologram character called Mendros. Instead of proceeding to do this nothing happens and so your left with no option but to abandon it. It's been commented about in it's reviews often enough and for long enough but the author does diddly squat about it. So why isn't this just viewed as clogging up the foundry with unplayable material and why aren't the authors required to fix it within a certain period or remove it if Cryptic doesn't do that for them? If they've put effort into design of a Foundry I don't understand why they don't want to address clearly identifiable problems if there are such problems.

What may have happened is a season update broke the mission and the author isn't around to fix it. This happens with each season update, usually. Over time, there are more and more broken missions out there.
