This! It works for both KDF and Fed ground missions where you've got a number of objectives to complete (scanning, clicking, killing, etc.)
I've never seen my tricorder point me at a destructable object like the borg machines in those missions. I always chalked it up to their being NPCs or some weird object that turns into an NPC when you get to a certain range. It reminds me of the space missions that have you blowing up derelict ships; they are non-targetable objects until you get to about 6km and then they suddenly are targetable and you can kill them.
Non-ship/captain objects in this game are weird. And the tricorders should really work better.
