I've got a ton of team missions left to do in Lemuria and Monster Island. We should team up at some point. Anyway, my current sub period is up on the 10th December, so I've got then to decide whether to cancel or not.
They could have just left ground combat out entirely. Regardless of how people felt about the games, no review I read said Legacy, or Starfleet Command, or Conquest, or Tactical Assault were ruined by no ground combat. I do see why it's there, they want to present all facets of Trek including exploring planets.
You're right DDevil, I haven't been on all that much on CO. I got to a mission designed for 2 and can't be bothered asking anyone else for help. I haven't even tried it myself, but I don't think I'm up to it. I might have another couple of mission though, I'll have a look tonight.
