Was just redo-ing 'Cutting the cord' on a character, and after the ground part of the mission to the second part of the space battles, i noticed for the first time 'iconian probes' floating along side the enemy Bops,
Has this always been there, or is this not ment to be here?
(is this another possible leak or am i jsut a bit dense when playing missions for the first time )
I could be wrong, but I think those probes are always there, they quickly attack and disable a few friendly Birds-of-Prey. The science optional stops this attack. Why you don't recall seeing them before is that they start attacking while your BOff is talking to you, so your screen is full of text-box.
I was under the impression that their appearance was linked to the science optional shortly before you beam up.
So if you see them or not depends on if you have a science captain with you.
No, they're always present, but they're very weak and are destroyed at the beginning of the battle. Blink and you'll miss them. The Iconian Probes have no weapons, they just hit ships with Viral Matrix.
"Don't let them promote you. Don't let them transfer you. Don't let them do anything that takes you off the bridge of that ship, because while you're there... you can make a difference." - James T. Kirk
