Is this still available? I did not see any hologram next to the Hutt statue on Nar Shadda.

These events need to last longer or be available at later periods. Is that going to be the plan, to have them happen again at a later date. I wasn't able to play for a couple weeks and totally missed out on this content.

Then, you have to run around looting boxes unless you have alts high enough level to do it again, which takes HOURS to get the tokens required to purchase the weapons, pet and outfit parts.
I agree with you on this. These events need to last longer so that more people can get access to them. An mmo having an event for just one week is not sympathetic to it's player base. Every player out there can't play every single day. Some have just enough time to play on the weekends, so this was just a big waste of the Devs. time because it didn't get show cased to everyone in the game.

Good arguments can be made for both cases I feel.

Having time limited events in some form makes the game more alive I feel. Gets the community moving and buzzing in a way they'd never get if "events" wouldn't go out to stay.

On the issue of their lenght, there are always gonna be people that "just miss" an event cos they have stuff going on IRL just that particular week. Can't be helped.

I mean sure it'd be nice if it lasted 2 weeks I guess but honestly, it depends on the event. This race was already stretched to its breaking point with 3 fetch quests buying the devs 3 days of "event time" with chasing the boxes the only filler. I don't think you could have streatched out this race to 2 weeks and still keep a somewhat satisfactory cohesion and structure of it for the players that "activly participated" in it from day one. Just wasn't enough content in it. Hopefully the next one can be larger and longer.

So what to do with my partially collected stuff and the tokens. Really feel like cheated out since I am not able to play all the time and now have half finished junk in my inventory just reminding me and irritating me.

Why not just have the event continuing as a linear quest after all the clues have been handed out with perhaps lesser rewards ?

Booo

Tokens? You can still buy stuff you know, Vendor won't be leaving until Tuesday at 12 AM (maintenance).
If you're short a couple tokens then just read general chat, people are spamming it trying to sell Tokens.
