    • Sometimes the box is empty when you open it.
      • This is not intentional.
  • The Expertise contribution window is displaying the wrong amount of Expertise you own as well as how much you can contribute.
    • If you try to contribute more than you have, it will fail.
    • To see how much expertise you have, check the Skills menu on one of your Bridge Officers and keep the contribution amount under that number.
  • Some interacts on the second floor of the Tholian cave are behind pods and cannot be claimed.
