From a science Doff mission, I got a Rare Alien Object. The description of it says that I should go to my ship interior and talk to my science officer, who will convert the Alien Object into a console.
I go to my bridge, and walk up to my Science Dept Head (have also tried the other Sci Boff on the bridge), and... I am ignored. Not even a salute or greeting, much less a conversation or offer to work on the Alien Object.
Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong or have missed? I'm just about ready to heave her out the nearest airlock.
