trying to get a game into beta at the end of the school year is kind of a pain

It'd be interesting if you declined to take credit and then the species you completed the quest for decided to make sure you got the honors anyway. The Brunt may decide to leverage the fact that they have an Operative working for them to help intimidate their opponents. Seems apt given their description. Oh you didn't want that revealed? Woops, they decided for you. Man up, they said.

Perhaps the Shadow decided to be true to their name and throw you under the bus, revealing what you've done completely of your own volition (Blatant Liars!). For that matter, what if they declined to pay you after contracting you for a job and denied knowing you. What would you do then? I guess you'd better hope there is a 3rd race you can go suck up to as those 2 are likely going to be enemies going forward.

Anyway, these options are likely best left for DLC/expansion ideas. I suspect they'd take a decent amount of work to code, and some people may not like the fact that completing a mission successfully can actually backfire on you in a bad way. The comments here just got me thinking, and I figured I'd toss a few ideas I had rattling around in my head.

added challenges to Drox Operative today (non-random setup, tough, and setups that normally would not happen)

I once had a painful argument with someone about why you can't be too realistic in space games: scale, time, sound, explosions, weapons, etc

Tell me about it. I once discussed space games with an aerospace engineer. Let's just say a long technical conversation followed...

I think the Acanths are getting revenge for me announcing them today. They've killed me at least 3 times so far since then.

I had to break an alliance today with the Lithosoids after destroying 2 other races for them because they had to go and piss off the Dryads.

It always bothers me when a 4X game doesn't have waypoints.
