Yeah, that looks accurate to me. I always do the "Duma Strike" and "Cha Raaba Assault" missions on Sundays and complete both [Cha Raaba Assault] and [Operation Foe Smasher] at the same time, in addition to a daily mission Tuesday through Saturday for the last week.

But on another character, I did not log in for 2 days, and as a result I am missing the missions for those two days (Thurs/Friday) for this week. It appears as if when you skip a day the mission disappears upon the next reset.
To give a bit more clarification, the when picked up, the Heroic Space Combat missions work as follows:

1. The mission for the day is available at 6AM CST (4AM PST/7AM EST/12PM GMT/1PM CET/11PM AEDT)
2. That mission is then available at 6AM CST (4AM PST/7AM EST/12PM GMT/1PM CET/11PM AEDT) the following day.
3. If you did not do the mission from the previous day, it will no longer be in your mission log, meaning these are not missions that can be collected and then complete them on the last day of the week. They cycle daily rather than “reset” weekly.

Hopefully this clears up any further confusion.

With regards to reports of inaccuracies in the schedule and the reported bug above, we are investigating and will report when there’s more information to relay.

Thanks for your feedback!

Ha. I knew I was right. Thanks for the clarification.

I think people get confused because they think there is a individual weekly or that they are dailys that can be aquired and done at their convienance, which is not the case. You get one daily a day, if you don't do it that day it's gone, replaced by the next day.
That's why they call it space, cause there is so much of it.

I guess the question is then why are they like that? I can't log in every day of the week so now I feel like I'm missing my space missions. Why not just make each one a weekly that resets on a different day so that you can log in an do the ones you havn't done since the last time you logged in?

I concur. This is a silly restriction IMO.

This does clarify how they work, but I have to agree with the other posters that this is extraordinarily confusing and very inconvenient. I would love to be able to collect them all and spend an hour doing them on Saturday, as it is difficult for me to log in most week days. I would suggest switching them to each be a separate weekly, resetting on different days. The net effect would be almost identical, and it would help some of the more casual players get more than 1 or 2 done per week.

What is happening with Lorta Escort/Hypori Escort? There will be no weekly for this space mission? Monday slot is empty.

Or just make them weekly's that all reset on Tuesday. This would essentially give the same affect except not requiring people to log in everyday or on some particular day to get them.

+1

Why oh why are these not in the same format as every other daily/weekly quest in the game? All this does is create frustration for people trying to complete them (as others have stated, I also don't log in every single day)

I'm pretty sure that's exactly the reason they set it up this way. You are meant to feel compelled to log in and play every day. If you log in to do the daily space mission you are more likely to play other aspects of the game daily as well. And when a customer participates in multiple aspects of the game on a daily basis, they are much more likely to keep their recurring subscription plan. I expect to see more of the new daily missions structured in this way going forward.
