Activities Window bonus question

Quick questions on the activities window:
Every day there is a bonus activity (examples: “Planetary Missions” or “Starfighter”) that gives more CXP.

1) Are these random (I’m pretty sure the answer is “yes”). Or is it on a schedule (ex: if Wednesday, then “Planetary Missions”)
2) Can they repeat within the same week (i.e. pure RNG), or is that event type locked out after it happens once in that week?
3) How many different Activity sub-types are there? Anyone have a list (Planetary, Starfighter, Flashpoints, Operations …)?

The reason I’m asking is that I wanted to save my CXP boost and remaining Weeklies for the when there is a Planetary bonus. But they just had that and I’m wondering if there’s even a chance it’ll pop again before next Tuesday reset.

I'm pretty sure it's down to the caprices of the Mistress of Pain (pure RNG).

As far as I know, the types are:
* Daily missions/Heroics ("Planetary missions")
* Chapters (KotFE/ET)
* Operations
* Warzones
* GSF
* Flashpoints.
* Uprisings

Thanks Steve, I knew I could count on you!

I suspect you are right, but would like to know for sure. I can’t recall seeing something pop twice in a row, which would be quite likely with pure RNG of only 7 types. So that gives me pause. Maybe just my faulty recollection.

If anyone has differing/definitive info on the Q’s, still interested in seeing.

Pretty sure they can, and do, happen more than one time in a given week. Almost equally certain I've seen the same "bonus" two days in a row.

There must be some amount of repetition, or the various "activities" would always happen the same day of the week - GSF always Sunday, "Planetary" missions on Monday, PVP Tuesday, and so on - but they don't.

Each bonus happens one day per week, the day is random. Resets on Monday. So yes Sunday and Monday can be the same activity but those are the only 2 days where there is a chance of getting the same bonus back to back.
May the Force be with you. Long live The Old Republic.

Thanks all! The last one makes some sense.
