Commodity Cheat Sheet
In the beginning, commodities were only needed for Aid the Planet missions. Then came the DOff system. Now with the addition of the fleet system, you might want to know where best to spend your hard earned money. Fear not, fellow captains, I have done the shopping for you!

Originally, all the commodities had 4 prices. From least expensive to most: Special Vendor, Space Trader, Base Price, and Replicator. For the basic and advanced commodities that translates to 50%, 75%, 100% and 150% cost. (For some reason the special commodities are always 100% cost except from the replicator where it's 150%). A patch changed Special Vendors to match Space Traders at 75%, so no more half price. The commodity vendor on the Tuffli freighter matches the Space Trader's prices.

Ferengi Lobes discount gives 20% discount on ground vendors (not space freighters). So buying Med Supplies from Semek on Vulcan costs 60 EC rather than 75, etc. (When I have more free time, I'll integrate those prices into the cheat sheet)

List below is Name Base Cost (special vendor and cost)

Basic Commodities (all available from Fhoss on ESD or Gren on Qo'noS)
Medical Supplies 100 (Semek Vulcan 75)
Provisions 100 (Taryss Andoria 75)
Shield Generators 100 (Fhoss ESD / Gren Qo'Nos 75)
Communication Arrays 200 (Taryss Andoria 150)
Industrial Energy Cells 400 (Semek Vulcan 300)

Advanced Commodities (all available from Lt. Marrien on SB39 or Trenk on Ganalda)
Antigens 400 (Rek MA 300)
Astrometric Probes 400 (Rek MA 300)
Water Purification Systems 400 (Lt. Marrien SB39 / Trenk Ganalda 300)
Weather Control Systems 600 (Rek MA 450)
Industrial Replicators 800 (Lt. Marrien SB39 / Trenk Ganalda 600 / Romulan Embassy 600)

*note all of the basic and advanced commodities can be found via space traders (the cargo ships, not ferengis or Mudd) for 75% base cost (which is better than the base cost, but the same as specialized vendors for most items).

Special Commodities (all available from Konzaar on DS9 or Odenk on Drozana - both locations are cross-faction)
Warp Coils 800 (also Talut K7) (Romulan Embassy 600)
Self-Sealing Stem Bolts 800 (Romulan Embassy 600)
Entertainment Provisions 800 (also Ariana Risa) (Romulan Embassy 600)
Seismic Stabilizers 1000 (also Melangogg Risa) (Romulan Embassy 750)
Terraforming Systems 1200 (also Talut K7) (Romulan Embassy 900)

*note, the specialized vendors and space traders do not give a discount on the special commodities. Not sure if this is working as intended or a bug.

**Tier 2 Romulan Embassies have special discounted specialty commodities at a console in the shipyard (next to the shuttle to the starbase). No Ferengi discounts apply

Gamma Quadrant Commodities (these are obtainable through "Haggle" DOff missions in Cardassian space* or as drops from certain boxes)
Bataret Incense
Ferasan Nepata Leaves
Shapeshifting Lockets
Unrefined Ketracel

* Cardassian space is Alpha Trianguli, Beta Ursae, Zeta Andromedae, Deep Space Nine, Rolor Nebula, Betreka Nebula, and Zenas Expanse. Bajor has missions in orbit, but not planet-side. I have been unable to find Haggle missions at Bajor

Klingons do not have specialized vendors (except for the few sold by the main commodity vendors)

Coming soon: Food locations.

Here's a cliff's note version.
Earth Spacedock (Club), Starfleet Academy (Club), Deep Space Nine (Quark's), and the Captain's Table (Cap) all sell the exact same foods.

Drozana sells the same as the other Fed vendors, but also sells the Comet Cocktail.

Deferi Snow Tubers are only available on Defera

Qo'nos sells different food from the Fed vendors (more of a klingon flavor)

Bajor sells Bajoran foods (at ridiculously high prices comparatively)

Starbase 39, K-7, Ganalda, Vulcan, Risa, Andoria all do not have food vendors.

Pricewise: Replicator and Fed vendors are cheap (like 20 EC for everything). Bajor and Qo'nos are expensive.

Data Samples
Easiest way to find: Go to appropriate nebula and scan anomalies. Play minigame for best results (and chance at rare particles)

Red (Radiation Sample, Mineral Sample, Alien Artifact): Delta Volanis, Arucanis Arm, T'Ong Nebula

Aqua (Antimatter Sample, Biological Sample, Unknown Alloy): Arucanis Arm, Hromi Cluster, Khazan Cluster, T'Ong Nebula, D'kel Cluster

Green (Tetryon Particle, Plasma Sample, Encoded Data): Khazan Cluster, Afehirr Nebula, Eridan Belt, D'kel Cluster, Eridon Nebula

Blue (Methogenic Particle, DNA Sequence, Genetic Sequencer): Eridan Belt, Rolor Nebula, Betreka Nebula, Zenas Expanse Eridon Nebula, Azlesa Expanse

Yellow (Tachyon Wave Signature, Exobiological Data, Photonic Technology): Zenas Expanse, B'Tran Cluster, Azlesa Expanse

Violet (Chronometric Wave Signature, Unidentified Substance, Technical Schematic): B'Tran Cluster (Vice Admiral), Azlesa Expanse (Elite)

I haven't had a chance to finish putting it together, but I've started it. It's coming soon...

It's always nice to see people putting in an effort to help out other players. Don't get me wrong; most players help each other out when someone has a question or an issue, but threads that help the masses out from the start always make me sm:)e.

Keep up the good work!

Obligatory STOwiki link, but mainly because it needs improving. ;)

I dont bother with comodities.

johnynormus 07-12-2012 06:29 AM

Can't you simply speak the the space freighter just outside sol system and get the cheap commodity prices instead of flying all over the place?
