    Between the two gas giants they have 41 known moons. Maybe NASA has been intentionally avoiding mission to those planets/moons.

    Neptune's 14 known moons: Naiad, Thalassa, Despina, Galatea, Larissa, S/2004 N 1, Proteus, Triton, Nereid, Halimede, Sao, Laomedeia, Psamathe & Neso.

    Uranus' 27 known moons: Cordelia, Ophelia, Bianca, Cressida, Desdemona, Juliet, Portia, Rosalind, Cupid, Belinda, Perdita, Puck, Mab, Miranda, Ariel, Umbriel, Titania, Oberon, Francisco, Caliban, Stephano, Trinculo, Sycorax, Margaret, Prospero, Setebos & Ferdinand.

    Why do you think they have been avoiding those moons and why now decide to plan missions there?...

    The lengthy Cassini mission could have revolved around the Ancient Builder Race and/or the Progenitors if they're one in the same. The acquisition of their technology is a ruthless quest by groups with space capabilities. Such technology would provide tactical advantage and be a force multiplier. In David Wilcock's book The Ascension Mysteries he wrote about artifacts floating in the rings of Saturn. He said there was a transparent aluminum tube around that planet that was used as a weapon. Neptune & Uranus might not have the same history and be a lower priority.
