Where on nukara does one find a tholian captain? If they mean, "queue for transdimensional tactics," they should say so, and further explain that "captain" actually means "project leader."

    Press "J", then go to the "In Progress" tab. Click on the Endeavor Mission and read.

    Well "captain" probably refers to the rank of the NPC. When you're fighting ground NPCs look at their status icon when you target them, the one that shows their name, health, distance etc. You'll see a number of vertical lines in the middle, the number tell you their rank, you can over it and see it'll say Ensign, Lieutenant, etc, regardless of what they're name says. As for where to find one, idk. I havnt been to Nukara in a while, you're best bet is probably one of the queues, but cant remember if you could also find one wondering around.

    If the only place to slay a captain is the queued mission, there is no need whatsoever to go to Nukara.

    I think it's bugged.

    Hard missions on Nukara were converted into NTTx and NSDTx queues years ago - and neither of those queues have a Tholian captain. Played NTTE and Endeavor didn't complete, several ppl reported the other queue didn't help them either.

    Also, killing Tholian captain on New Romulus didn't count either.

    Nope. The ques are it. And they are a pain. Did Transdemensional tactics just now. Our group failed. It's a private instance but they still have it where you're stuck behind a force field if you respawn. And the mobs can still attack you, but you can't attack back. They need to tweak this que.

    Edit: Just completed the que on another character. The project leader teleports out before you can kill him. We completed the STF but still didn't get the endeavor. That's... frustrating.

    It's not the project leader in transdimensional tactics. I finally queued with a team that beat it, and it did not give me the endeavor reward. This is aggravating.

    Change the endeavor or fix it, no point having something that is impossible to attain

      Heaven forbid someone actually test this stuff before deploying it.

        Does it have to be Nukara? The New Romulus final rep tier mission has a Tholian Captain.​​

          Are you taking about an Endeavor? Try the mission Stormbound in the Future Proof tab. You definitely fight a Tholian captain aboard his ship in that mission.

          Don't let them promote you. Don't let them transfer you. Don't let them do anything that takes you off the bridge of that ship, because while you're there... you can make a difference.

          It has to be on Nukara, and apparently, there are none there.

          The Endeavor is "murderize a Tholian Captain on planet Nuka-cola". None of the Episodes are on planet Nuka-cola.

          They'll probably fix it after the time for it runs out or they'll remove it after the time for it runs out. Stuff happens.

          But QA never happens.

          Here's the thing: What works in testing may be completely messed up on the live server. We don't know that no testing was done on this particular endeavor. It may have, it may not have. We don't have that information. Even if it did get tested, that does not mean it couldn't be messed up when added to the game. Code can be finicky. Best thing we can do is be patient and see what the Devs do about it at this point. I'm sure, at the very least, we'll get a Mea Culpa at some point.

            Does it even have to be the real Nukara? Has anyone tried going to one of the foundry missions that take place on Nukara? There used to be a spotlight mission that takes place there.

            This seems likely. If you read the Endeavor from your In Progress it says "You can find Captain-ranked Tholian Project Leaders in the Hard missions."

            It appears the Tholian Project Leader is supposed to give the completion, but something is cross-wired somewhere. You can still queue for the missions on Nuka-cola, you don't have to use the queue interface.

            We're aware of the issues with today's Endeavor but may not be able to fix it in time due to the holiday. We'll keep you posted.
            Just spotted the above tweet.

            Now riddle me this.....do they actually have a QA dept any more or do they just throw untested junk at us to pass the time. This game is feeling very amateur-hour these days I'm afraid to say. :/

            I learned the Foundry interface and search function is complete garbage. Many thanks to the Endeavor system for bringing this to my attention. Shame, Cryptic. Shame.

            I tried Trans. Tactics, defeated the Project Leader, and it did not count....maybe I will try again on Advanced, and see if that counts as "Hard".
