Seems like you only saw the title, didn't bother to read anything substantive in the thread itself, and then tossed off your disagreement in ignorance of what actually being suggested.

Which is:

1. If you pick up the heroic mission from the terminal, it auto-completes as currently implemented in 4.0.
2. BUT, if you pick up the heroic mission from the quest giver (with an opening conversation), you turn it back into the quest giver (with a closing conversation).

This gives the people like you who want "just fast credits and comms" a way to grind the content, but still allows the people who like the story and conversations to experience them.

This thread is 12 pages. I'm not going to read past the OP.

The majority want fast and instant gratification which is why BW has continued the trend with double XP, boosted class missions, instant level 60, bis gear in highlighted ops, and autocomplete heroics.

I don't think that person even reads at all and is indicative of the problem itself. By the way 4.4 didn't bring back the cutscenes at all they've yet to bring back Imperial Scholar or Mantellian either for that matter! One would really think bioware would want to keep setting itself apart from WoW or other MMOS by giving us story content instead of just pathetic grinds.

Take a good long look at the flashpoints as well as the heroics you no longer get anything other than a few garbage crystals no point in paying seventy bucks a month if their going to just keep screwing people over in favor very bad expediency.

I would definitely like it if they gave us the cutscenes back when the missions are picked up from the original NPC / terminal, and gave us back the breadcrumb missions to SecX, Black Hole, etc.

The breadcrumb idea was fun and would love for that to return as well. As for those who are too impatient just spacebar it

Just tried doing 'Friends of Old' no point to it thanks ever so much lazy devs who turned a good product into a more mediocre mist of pandara wow inspired game.

THey cut everything because of this philosophy : http://venturebeat.com/2016/05/11/st...-in-less-time/

"People want to do more in less time", they believe.

Solution : Reduce gameplay time by simply cutting away cutscenes ...

This reminds me a lot of the message of the Disney / Pixar movie "Cars". The first one.

In short they went with the Warcraft mists of pandara approach. Yeah no wonder many people are miffed...considering their vaunted claim to offer story and choices in the game.
