The counters to the mission aren't hard to come by if you max out the ships. I got mine yesterday with 100% chance. I waited until I could counter everything because I am weirdly attached to my ships and don't want to risk losing any of them. There's nothing obscure to combat; they can all be countered with the "standard" blueprint drop types.
I ran three toons through full clears and got one of each opera event. This guy dropped from the wolf on my first try. No other pets from anyone, though. Maybe next week!
I found several as secondary pets on the north side of Stonard.
