During the "Diplomatic Distractions" segment of the mission: the interaction with Captain Va'Kel Shon was showing as completed (checked marked off and green text in Mission Tracker) even as I did not interact with him.
It is a pretty important contact and interaction. As, interacting with Shon lets one start DOFF assignments. Also, gives a clue to completion of another mission the one for Surah getting access to the Holodeck.
