# 1 Tholians do weird things
08-22-2012, 11:58 AM
In the easy/medium exterior section on Nukara, sometimes the Tholian ensigns kind of rear up and spread their arms out, and a sort of energy burst starts to form around them (not the usual shooting). I have played this mission a lot and only seen it a few times. I always blast them before what ever it is completes. And in the interior easy/medium mission, sometimes the Tholian Lieutenants kind of freak out and then explode into a million pieces. I can't make it happen regularly. What's up with these two things?

I think the exploding lieutenants are an intentional mechanic designed to knock out unsuspecting players who stick to close to one.

These are intended mechanics, and intended to be rare occurrences.

Well if one out of 10 is rare, you have succeded. Thats about how often I have expirienced it before I got bored.

I think the exploding only happens with the breen ice gun or the sonic weapons that drop as rewards. even then i think you have to get a critical hit at the right time.
