New space op idea

So, a couple guildies and I were discussing this earlier. It's basically an op that forces you to do a space mission at the beginning. This is just a basic idea right now, so let me know what you think.

Basically, when you start it puts you all on your own ships. There are a certain number of objectives to complete, and if you alone focus on one, you might be able to complete it by yourself. But there are more objectives than people or the objectives require more than one person working on them. It will play like a normal space mission, in that you're the only player in that area. The space mission is just the entrance to the level.

Depending on how well or how poorly your group did during the space mission, it will change how the op will run. Maybe the bosses will have more life, or maybe the trash is more difficult or numerous. Maybe you have to go out of your way to complete a task that you wouldn't have had to do if you killed something during the space mission.

These things just give an incentive to gearing your ship and doing the daily space missions. Right now they're next to worthless. Also, I think it would be really neat to make everyone responsible for something completely on their own, and you'd know who DIDN'T live up to their end of it.

Anyways, let me know what you guys think. I'm sure this might be difficult to synchronize with everything, or work out all the bugs, but I think it's a really neat idea. I'm open to suggestions or new ideas or pointing out why it would or would not work.

P.S. If I wasn't clear, the space part of it is only the entrance to the level really. The rest of the op would be planetside or inside a star destroyer or something along those lines.

Interesting idea but sadly might be a little too outside the box for the developers. So far space missions are only an afterthought and have no real purpose =/

I think this is a great idea!

What would really be cool is if they could include every player in the same space instance and then have each person have their own objectives. Maybe have tanks work on downing shield generators. DPS is responsible for downing enemy fighters. Heals takes down turrets. Something like that.

Bioware... Get on it!

Given that space missions are purely rail shooters and I avoid them like the plague as they hold no entertainment value for me at all, I would not like this idea at all.

That would be great. And you know the developers would come up with something creative for it! This would be a fun challenge and change of pace...

Maybe people who can complete the space part would have to be rescued at the beginning of the ops
