I have noticed an interesting problem in CHOS and T'Knas nebulas.If I die while killing someone the loot box is gone when I come back. I have seen it happen at least 5 times and in fact never find a loot box after I die.
This has been happening for a few days now. A friend and I have been doing missions together. He is in a Cruiser and I am in a Science Vessel. So I try to loot ASAP. Unfortunately for my friend, by the time he gets turned around, the two of us have watch loot go "poof"!
But yesterday it also happened on the ground. There was one box I was unable to loot, and within about a minute of my first attempt it simply vanished.
What gets me about this is that the one item I was unable to loot, was an Item I could have modded at Memory Alpha. I can't buy that stuff ANYWHERE! And now I can't even loot it!!
