So, I joined the Borg Red Alert in Beta quadrant. Went in, blew up some Borg. Was in on the finish of the Unimatrix. But, was not offered a choice of marks, only asked to leave the field. When I returned to sector space, I tried to figure out if I received any random marks awards. I did not. I tried to go on the Tholian Red Alert and found I was on a 2 hour cool down as a "Penalty" for being AFK.
I NEVER left the frigging keyboard from the time I logged in, until I quit the game in total disgust. WTF???
