OK, I forgot that one, because other than the Theoretika, I never had any urge to revisit those quest locations. And even the Theoretika isn't that interesting after the quest is complete.

My open quests show on the galaxy map - the planets are careted with the standard quest marker triangles, and hovering the mouse over the planet shows the list of active quests there. I just doublechecked that - here's the screenshot - https://goo.gl/photos/YMESJnuYjo4UNYpb9 - map is fully zoomed out. Note that I don't have any missions untracked in my log - I believe untracking them will remove them from the map. I'm not currently grouped, so I don't see my group's missions.

Ok, that makes sense because I untrack missions that I don't want to show up on the Interface. I kinda like to choose what missions I want to actively keep track of. The nice thing about the old galaxy map was that it reminded me of what else was active on that planet whether it was currently tracked or not. I definitely liked the old version of this feature better, but at least I know about it now.

Thanks for pointing it out.

Brings it into line with the other maps in the game - if you've untracked missions, you don't see the markers on planet maps (IIRC anyway, I haven't been in a situation to check recently).

I was wrong about one thing, it doesn't caret the individual space missions in an "Operation." That's rather annoying, but at least you have the mission log overlay now, so you can see what's up there.

I try and keep my tracked missions down to a mild roar myself - that character is unusual for having a ton of heroics undone, and thus a lot of tracked missions.
