I really REALLY doubt there's anything wrong with the new space missions. Just like with all previous missions you have to finish them ALL first before you unlock dailies / weeklies for them. I also did not have any weeklies, until I finished all new missions. Then 3 weeklies appeared (and they keep appearing each week now).
I bet most of you haven't completed all new missions and falsely think that there's some kind of bug here.
Well I REALLY REALLY know that you are REALLY REALLY wrong. I completed all the missions (after much frustration and effort I might say. They are a lot harder!) and I can't play the repeatable ones. It just keeps saying "You are not eligible for this mission" and won't let me take the mission. The only other space missions available are the sub level 50s.
