Hypertech vs Alien Artifact returns from Arch missions

Is it me, or is there a serious imbalance in the ration of these two Artifact types from Tier 5 missions?

I need Hypertech but keep getting Alien to the point I've already sold one 99 stack of Alien and am working on my 3rd stack while not getting any Hypertech returns.

Is this something being addressed in 1.2 or am I going to have to go back and actually gather Hypertech nodes?

Every crafting profession has that one elusive rare ingredient.

the artifice one is the Hypertech fragments. i got 2 400 archeology guys and i constantly am sending them on Rich missions, it takes awhile but you can get a few stacks if you keep at it.

farming them on Belsavis helps too.

currently i probably have 200 Hypertech and 800 Alien fragments.

And it always will be. In various crew skills some materials are less common than others; it is intentionally designed that way. You don't like it, that's fine. But do not get your hopes up for a "fix" because there is no "fix" needed.
