I think it is a bug...cause when you get those "scan 4 things on a planet" missions, they actually award you with sp....and there is also no combat involved...
so you're proposing that the peaceful missions, aka what Star Trek is about, should be removed in favor of the combat ones? Or those that want to run those type of missions shouldn't be allowed to level with everybody else?
When I do those missions, I don't see SP in the pop up text on the reward, but I see +xx amount of SP in the chat window.
I am sure. You dont get Skill Points for those find 5 anomolies exploration missions anymore. I know you got SP in 'Closed' beta. Not sure we did in 'Open' beta.
You do get credit for them as to your total number of exploration missions and at least one of the exploration areas is bugged and auto-completes when you do the last of 3 missions. This could be what you are seeing when you think you are getting SP's for those missions.
