I wonder if Cryptic realizes that if they wanted to pull off something like Scout101's idea, all they'd really need is a set of client-side scripting that toggles DS9 and "war camp" access depending on mission completion. Hell, just make the war camp an "area" of DS9's map.
Its a lot more complicated than that. For example, there are foundry missions based on an unconquered DS9. Doing this would have broken all of those missions as the "normal" DS9 would not be accessible to players that have completed the FE.
So your problem is that FE's would actually be interesting because they impact what you can do as they are unfolding.

Oh and as for the first FE, TOTAL RIPOFF OF CALL TO ARMS. Also, are they unable to script camera cuts instead of pans?
