    On timeanddate.com maintenance is indicated it ends at 17.30 UTC (for UK.) However the launcher is stating it ends at 18.30 UTC. Which is correct?

    It is another Beacon. This does not bode well.

    I might run it once to check it out (BoBS). But the reward isn't worth grinding out 14 runs.

    And as for the episode requirements for the New Romulus accolade being removed? It's a possible sign that the replay bug for those 4 quests won't be fixed anytime soon, if it was even a bug to begin with. I beginning to wonder.

    Coolies. Hope it fixes the rubber banding that's been going on the past few days. o.o

    In my experience, I find it usually ends about an hour after the time the launcher says it should.

    Does this mean that The Atlai, Vastam Peaks, Paehos Crater, & Haweal Ruins are returning to New Romulus? The patch notes were vague since those aren't currently in the New Romulus Episode since the new Season.

    They're still in the game in the AVAILABLE tab, they just vanish from the listing if you've already done them on that character.

    THANK YOU!

    The name of this TFO is I guess named after from something in Star Trek lore, but binary stars are incredibly common, like 1/3 of the galaxy.

    It's as generic as saying "The Battle of Walgreens in Springfield", since there are probably 40 of those in each Springfield (and countless Springfields)

    Just looked and they are not there. Only thing I have at New Romulus in the Available tab is Radiation Scan (Daily) and I had done New Romulus 2 years ago.. One more question. Where do new characters find the Lost Dominion Arc and the Spectres Arc that were removed from the main Episodes. There is no explanation anywhere in game on how to obtain or discover the missions that were removed from the episodes by new characters or even new players. I have a friend going nuts with his Discovery character trying to find them and they aren't in his Available tab.

    PST time shows 2.5 hours for maintenance, so the 3.5 hours for UTC means someone can't count and put 18:30 instead of 17:30.

    for Spectres go to donatu (or drozana area if doesn't work - because I am unsure but thinking it's donatu) and it should complete if you have the pre's. then you go inside donatu for skirmishes, and continue quest by quest.

    (Fed though needs galaxy at large 1st before going to donatu for spectres. I don't know if there are other conditions.)

    If you've reached level 65 and they aren't in the Available tab in the journel, that would be a bug rather than removed content.

    As I said, they disappear from the list if you've already done them.

    The past Featured Event missions are in the same place, though they apparently require you to be level 65 now.

    The waveform swarmers damage was just stupid.

    Although was useful during the breach event to clear the final room nice and quick.

    Another faint try - MAYBE this works.
    @loucosta , Note that level 65 MIGHT be required too - I am not sure if it applies for Spectres at donatu.
    This may be the issue, though you've already got breen (could be from before the patch which set that level requirement though)


    Just in case as for "sitting on the roof", as you said - (N/A for you - galaxy at large which is not for KDF, and completing tutorial) could be skipping/getting or OFC doing all TFOs may help from the 1st and to the buttom one by one. Beside the noted level 65.

    For auto hails you'd maybe also better complete the previous quests in line without having any quest there in process but that's all sounds too tedious let alone messy and obscure! this revamping is really tiring.

    Flat touch screens and graphical user interfaces are 20th century technology. I can't imagine what the 25th century will be like. We'll probably be merged with our tech like Borg by then.
