This isn't a DR topic, despite the term 'patrol' in the title. Sorry DR haters.

This relates to old content introduced at launch in Romulan space. With the revamping of the Romulan mission content I thought now would be a good time to ask this outdated mission be removed as well.

This mission used to be a part of the "Sector Patrols" that Sulu gave out to Fed captains. Now it is an independent mission at the Chulan System in the Psi Velorum sector block. It concerns removing radiation from the space surrounding Chulan II - a Federation colony.

The problem is that Chulan got an upgrade with Legacy of Romulus, making it a Romulan system (the space station the Elachi are attacking). The Fed "patrol" mission remnant remained unfortunately after this was done.

With the upcoming revamp of the Galaxy map, it's high time this outdated and unneeded content was removed. So please dev team, as much as I hate the removal of content, this old mission with no relevance to anything else in the game needs to go.

Thanks!

Hmm.... was the patrol the only mission that used that system?

6: Rator
7: Mylasa
8: Cirini
9: Pilatus, Hadrian
10: Hobus
11: Great Bloom
12: Chiron, Rashana

so... yeah, the old Romulan mystery arc didn't have an actual mission there.

Yep. The system is now used for the Romulan arc 'Abducted' mission as well as the Elachi station invasion que. The old Fed patrol mission there is completely incongruent with this new material (as it is clearly Romulan space). It makes sense to just remove the patrol mission entirely.

Instead of removing it, why not just update the patrol map to be a mirror of the Romulan mission, so Starfleet is giving aid to the "independant" Romulans there? By this time we'd have already encountered the Elachi and their fleet, and it isn't like there aren't any other Starfleet patrols already taking place in Psi Velorum anyway, so it wouldn't be out of place.

Space is big. In reality if not on the sector map. Believe it or not, there's enough room in a star system for BOTH a planet AND a space station.

This. Solar systems happen to happen loops of stuff in them, multiple planets....

Ds9 and bajor and bajor 5 are in the same solari system yet completly different maps.

Also I'm sick of cryptic removing content.

I thought of 'updating' the patrol mission when the system originally went 'wonky' (both fed and romulan space at the same time) - http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...d.php?t=803191

But the more I thought about it, and especially now that the precedence has been set of removing outdated stuff, I don't want the Dev team to waste extremely valuable time trying to update a simple scan three asteroids mission that is a left over from launch that can be played only once by a character. Simply remove it and be done. No one will miss it at all.

As for leaving the system 'schizophrenic' (both fed and rom space), that makes no sense. It would be the same as having a Klingon station parked next to Vulcan. Hey space is big, and the Klingons have been seen in Federation space, so why couldn't they have a station in the Vulcan system?

I could see it if the system was IN the Neutral Zone and a cooperative agreement was stated as being in effect there (something like Nimbus). But it clearly has been made a Romulan system from the new content created for it.

Its incorrect location on the Federation side of the Neutral Zone is getting fixed with the upcoming Galaxy map revamp.

If it's a border system then maybe it could have a small presence of both.
