Same, that is why I wasn't doing them. Also because they are typically so long and unrewarding for the time to boot.

What about Memory Alpha - I did the mission that sends me over there to turn in the data sample but I cannot get any missions from the other NPCs there - nor could I in OB. Is that a level thing too?

The Patrol missions where it assigns several systems inside normal sector space shouldnt be Repeated. The "Defend" missions are (those are the enemy encounters) and the Explore missions that want you to explore 3 unknown systems are also repeatable.

In beta I did have at least 1 level where I ran out of normal missions though, and had to do a few repeatable missions then suddenly some more regulars showed up.

If you are getting Patrol missions (go to x, y, z systems and do stuff) offered multiple times, it is a bug, and should be reported. The repeatable ones Sulu is supposed to offer are the missions that have you go to x number of Enemy Contacts in a sector and fight them.

Unfortunately, there are a few gaps up through Captain from their on out, from what I noticed during beta. You're going to have to either PvP, repeat some defend missions, or do some exploration missions in order to grind your way through.

I think they were expecting us to be PvP'ing and hanging out a little longer in Fleet Actions and such, as far as I can figure. The gap once you hit commander is pretty big.. you get missions, but they can be tough (several levels above you). So, I'd suggest you do the same then.. hit the patrols, fleet actions, defend missions, exploration missions, etc.

Probably would have helped if the PvP resource missions near K7 weren't broken also, as that would have provided some more XP earlier on.

You have to do the mission that involves taking someone from starbase 114 in the Celes sector to Starbase 39 in the sierra sector, to unlock the next set of missions, once you have run out of missions from the Sol Starbase.

I don't know abotu unrewarding. At in the sirius sector each leg of the patrol gives a completion bonus of exp, BOff points and merits. With 4 legs typically you end up getting about 1.5 times the final points rewarded by an episode. All you dont get is the loot reward that comes with an episode.

And yeah, patrols should not be repeatable. One time for each system from Sulu.

I guess I will have to take a look at them again, in open beta I started doing them all and seemed to be getting nowhere fast. Not that I am in a rush, it just seemed they where more filler than meal.

I am Lt 6 as well and I just picked up a ton more missions, maybe they are repeatable. Did you contact the fleet for more missions? It will usually tell you if anyone has more missions.

Anyways, finished my last mission after that and now I got nothing. Memory Alpha won't give me any, says to do stuff for this or that NPC and haling starfleet is just the lowbie patrols and defends and whatnot. And I tried to go back to Deepspace 7 (think that is place) and get that Neutral Zone mission again to see if it was working and I couldn't even pick that up.

Any suggestions?
wow I wasnt out of missions till I was at the last of captain... dunno I had to grind maybe half a level somewhere in thier but had plenty to do.
