Someone might have been nice enough to pass one along to you had you asked.
Thanks for your comment and the insight.

FYI you can also infect other people; you get a quest to infect 10 others.
Where do we pick up this quest? Is it 50 only? I have been infected a few times at the fleet and the mission terminal nor holo is not showing a quest for my level 42 Sage.

The 'choice' argument is a canard. You have plenty of choices. You just don't like them. That's too bad. There are aspects of this game in which my choices aren't stellar (I have to fly space missions to get rare mats for crafting). You're NOT special, and deserve no more special consideration over any other aspect of the game.
Good will always triumph because Evil is lazy.

So that will be your stand if a game event interrupts your space mission? No? That's the comparision here.

Yes, it's as simple as that.

I'm for events; they are excellent features for a game to have. All I ask is that there be other options considered, other options than "must be involved."

Not a canard.

Let's see .. the choice to participate or not in the event? No. No notice, announcement or bulletin on the starter area of Ord Mantell (can't speak for the other areas). No bulletin until on the Fleet ... which is where the infection happened.

And if there were notices on the starter area? Where is the choice to go elsewhere to get and finish the AC and Class Trainer quests? No; the only destinations are on the Fleet or having to pass through the Fleet to the capital, the same Fleet with characters in hiding (speaking of you, Smuggler!) to infect people.

The choice to play another character? Yes, did have that one and you're right on that: I did want to play the character I selected, too bad for me.
The choice to stay out of the game until after the event is over? Yes, did have that one. But you're right again: I chose to want to play this game instead of do something else, too bad for me.

A good analogy for this event: Open World non-consensual PvP ... whether or not you're on a PvP server. I don't mind PvP on a PvE server as long as parties agree. The agreement part here is what is missing.

That's right, no one (including us both) no more special than those who want to play any other aspect of the game, with the character they want, doing the quests or crafting or simply watching the speeders go by ... or those who want to participate/not particpate in an event.

tl,dr: have events, have lots of them. have participation optional in case some people want to do other things at those times.

You don't have to participate in this event if you don't want to. I played around with it for a few hours, then went back to my usual routine. If you get infected it's not a big deal. Just keep questing and when you explode just Rez yourself and move on. It's that simple.

This event does not have to interfere with your gameplay.

I think the plague can actually get fully bugged when switching areas. I've been Lightheaded and Feverish (not at the same time) for far longer than twenty minutes, even without switching zones.
Jedi vs. Sith, Page 97, column 2, paragraph 4, line 1:

Prior to the Battle of Ruusan, the Jedi used crystals from many different sources, and ignited lightsabers in every known hue, including purple, orange, and gold.

I have had these issues too. It seems the best way to deal with the issue is to vaccinate yourself, remove the vaccination buff, and head back to the wreckage to get reinfected by a rakghoul. It continues to work for me.
Evil is a word used by the ignorant and the weak. The dark side is about survival. It's about unleashing your inner power. It glorifies the strength of the individual.
