How long is this supposed to last? 1 week or 2?

Title says it's all - avoid Alderaan. THORN is requesting cannon fodder from both Empire and Republic but they don't even offer any significant or exclusive monetary and material rewards.

What's most important - they don't enforce order in their ranks, meaning that there is plenty of infighting among THORN members (with a lot of mortal casualties) from Empire and Republic. Basically - THORN doesn't give a damn that their soldiers are actually falling to their own members, not rakghouls they're fighting against.

Why does THORN tolerate its emergency responders fighting among themselves?!

Avoid Alderaan and THORN. You're risking your health, career, life, citizenship and mental health for nothing.

Answer: I've heard it's only going until the 28th. Which is disappointing. But it also makes sense from an anti-short reputation grind perspective.

I hope you're not going to wait a year after the 28th before bringing it back again.

That's an assumption. We don't know for certain just when they're bringing it back.
