So I have been told about the oddy crew malfunction during saucer separation for a while. I did not believe it until I played around with it in Sol system space. With full crew of 2500 I separated my oddy. This is suppose to set my crew level to 1000 which it did. With no combat because I was in Sol system I reconnected my ship and my crew level instantly drop below half. My crew level connected was set 1000 of 2500. Then of course I started regening crew.
Is this the way it is suppose to be?
Why can't the crew return be based on health of the returning saucer section?
