So i was doing this mission and had a couple medical supplies aboard, and i got the option to give some to the sh'mar i thought hey that's cool, and went through the mission and was disappointed to find out nothing really changes for having given them the supplies, i was thinking why not do like the rescue breen daily and give diplomacy XP if you complete an optional component ( giving them med supplies) or even an accolade like deferi satellite repairman.
it's cool that you have extra options, but some sort of reward or at least acknowledgment of going the extra bit of giving away med supplies.
Do you get diplomatic XP from this? If not you probably should, I'd say helping out a native to the Neutral Zone favourably would warrant it. You could even have it so that you get ten points just for saving the ship from the True Way, and another ten from aiding them with medical supplies.
