I changed the frieghters so that they disable at 50% health instead of 35%.. Making them slightly more manageable...

I updated the loot tables on the freighters so that they drop crafting materials from all crafting tiers, as well as a 2% chance to drop Rare Particles, or if you're really unlucky ..stem bolts. I am planning to replace stem bolts with a crate of Tribbles.. once I have a new icon

Anyhow... Happy Holidays.... Let me know how the missions are going....

Way to miss the point.

The issue is that the Optional objective we are given says 'Loot 4 freighters' and the map contains 8 freighters. But looting just any 4 doesn't cut it, We have to loot 4 of the 6 that are outside the force field bubble, which I have failed again and again and again.
There simply isnt time to fight off escorts for 2 freighters, stop and loot them, and then run way across the map in a tail chase to fight off more escorts and stop and loot two more freighters.

Currently the optional objective is a lie, so either change the wording or make it so that looting four freighters actually fulfills it.

Addition: This isn't the only thing thats bugged in the Klingon Pi Canis missions. In Kern system 'Defeat 4 federation ships, destroy 5 surveillance satellites'), the Fed ships shoot at the satellites they are supposed to defend...
