From the great Tumerboy over on reddit:
This is not clear in game (obviously), and we will work on a method to show these areas to players in game, but in the mean time, here are the regions within which you will receive different DOFF Assignments:

    Cool thing thx for linking it OP.

    Despite the fact that they did an awesome job at cryptic with this I’m very disappointed they relocated the fleet dil mine as my number one Doff position for inactive toons. Where it’s now there are no Doff exchange assignments and one has to relocate ones position.

    Great Post! It was like finding easter eggs. Now I can plan a new route for my doff missions.

    Before Season 10, I'd fly my Dil-farming KDF toons through the following route:

    Quo'Nos -> Eta Eridani -> Pi Canis -> Regulus

    After Season 10, I'm pretty much doing the same thing. Only, instead of plotting courses to sector block borders, i target specific systems within the sectors of those former sector blocks.
    Nothing has changed in terms of what assignments i get, which is how it should be.

    i used to farm qnos>ps canis> eta eri>regulus> serius> beta> zeta>>alpha. for Dil prisoner and exchange offices doff mission, now i was just doing beta, zeta and alpha. now with the new sectors blocks i have notcied that evvery single sector block has a diferent list of doff missions.i was hoping it was going to be quadrant wide, but nowits just sector wide and the times that i have to go trought all 8 doff tabas have incresed dramatically.

    Same as with prokor - for me, the borders where doff missions change don't seem to be what the original post claims. Every sector seems to have separate missions, and occasionally I will actually get different missions in different regions of the same sector.

    I had all the same doff missions going from Earth to Azless. Occasionally, I'd see different missions, but they'd flicker and be gone within seconds. I'm hoping that it's a bug.

    I did those maps at the very end of yesterday, and didn't have a chance to come over here and make a proper post. Sorry about that, but thanks for posting this for me Nagus!

    I was able to do some doffing this morning and the areas still change by the old sector-block but you need to close and reopen the doff window. It also seems that many doff missions are universal for the quadrant.

    The Lootcritter also posted them along with a Marauding Map as well.

    didn't notice on KDF, but on fed some sectors assignments appear only at certain points near the borders between sectors
    case: former Deferi block assignments pop on the way from Zenas to Defera (if you stop right there where they do you can take them) just before leaving the sector with Zenas into the next sector
    at the same time, the former Orrelius block where Defera is doesn't offer specific missions with regards to Defera (diplomatic)
    the same thing all over the Beta Quadrant when passing sector borders, in certain points either after crossing or just crossing a border, assignments flicker and change into a different setup

    it also seems it takes a while for the assignments to refresh once you cross the border into another sector, and this can lead to a lot of confusion, in certain sectors they seem to refresh when going deeper into the respective sector, as such when I entered Alpha Quadrant from near Sol and went all the way to Betreka keeping a straignt line parallel and close to the quadrant border NO ASSIGNMENTS APPEARED in all those sectors until I went deeper into Alpha

    also, some department heads seem to offer less of a selection of assignments and more of a "ALL OF THEM" at once
    furthermore, Rolor Nebula is glitched and offers 0 assignments

    devs need to work on this a bit I reckon since it will take some of us doffers the better part of the day just to find the right assignments in the wrong sectors
    it's good that we got rid of the loading screens but they also provided a nice refresh to doff assignments once you were in another map

    it si very easy to confirm, just go around the cardasia sector with you mian doff mission page open and you will see it change while you travel throught them .

    I think this is a easier/quicker route to follow.

    The delay in updating the doff assignments is honestly a bit of a pain at high transwarp speeds, especially with the apparent increase in sector travel speed--I'm pretty sure I'm crossing through some sectors before they can even update the UI once, based on the delays I sometimes see, especially when plotting a diagonal path.

    I suppose there's a certain amount of hand-waving that could be done there--speaking from an in-universe perspective, it's doubtful you'd be sending people out on off-ship assignments while traveling at transwarp 20. XD But I'd rather see it fixed.

    I have many issues with this. Today, i was flying through Alpha quadrant, trying find some rare material(Javonite, Ketracell, etc.), but couldnt find any. Just single random Tullaberries randomly pop up, but most of time my Current map Asignments were stuck to certain pattern of missions. Then i give up and headed to Beta quadrant, but still exactly same pattern of asignments pop up.
    I did some experiments, following map from first post, and i found if I left window open, it changes. But if i close it, move to another sector block and open, it stays stuck.
    Problem is, in my opinion, in UI refresh. It need to be checked.

    There is a huge bug here that basically causes the DOFF assignments to not switch whenever you cross the borders! See here. http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/showthread.php?t=1438331

    Needs dev attention!
