Dear Developer or whoever it may concern.
In the early days of Star Trek Online. Everything was re-playable, this included mini missions like "Trade Deal" on Starbase 39-Sierra and "Temple Offerings" on Deep Space 9. It also included all the system patrols spread throughout the Alpha and Beta Quadrants.
For some reason all these mini missions and patrol missions was turned into a one time thing. That was a bad decision in my eyes as a lot of these patrol missions have good and beautiful maps and fun to do missions that are short and easy to play.
With the removal of the replayability of these missions you loose a great deal of content to replay, you loose a great deal of maps, NPC's and just in general things to do.
There are so many planets you can do system patrols in, so many NPC's to interact with, so many mini missions and just fun small patrol missions. Being limited to only playing these ONCE per character is rather foolish.
Being a Star Trek game one of the most fun things I experienced when this game was released, was being able to travel throughout the Alpha and Beta quadrants, exploring the Roddenberry universe and do these patrol missions, and just looking around on the various surface maps you have created for these missions. Some of them are very pretty and interesting.
And the NPC's and mission itself can be quite fun, even though they just contain small references to Star Trek events. My point is that all these small patrol systems is what made this game into the one Star Trek game. Where as advertised, the Star Trek universe truly is displayed on a large open world scale.
This is the only game where you can actually explore the Roddenberry universe on a large scale, being able to only explore 90% of the places ONCE is rather foolish.
So therefor I ask you Cryptic, Developer or whoever it might concern. Please read this and please take it into consideration. Make all the fun mini missions and the patrol missions all over the Alpha and Beta quadrants replayable once again.
So we players can enjoy these fun small missions, the NPC's and the beautiful maps over and over again.
So we can explore the large Star Trek universe you have created for us... More than once.
If you are worried about grinding, you can do so when the mission is being replayed there is no reward. Or you can put a cooldown timer on it or something. Just atleast allow us to enjoy them again and again.
- STO fan since Beta release.
