Because of the bugs in the explore missions, i'm not changing the rules on them. When the bugs are fixed, i'll edit that section.

Is it better to be cool? or to be awesome? Can i be both? What happens if i click on both links? Does one cancel out the other one? Has this been determined?

Can't be Scan Anomalies
Can't be the scan prob fragments w/ hostile aliens ground mission

Other than that, unless the mission is bugged in general, you should get DXP.

Check the guide for more details.
One of the missions in the Aid the Deferi daily is one where you go around salvaging things with hostiles around, but you don't have to kill them. It won't, however, give me DXP. Do you have a guess as to why?

My guess is that A) They are revamping the system and are not sure what counts for what at the moment, or B) The rule has changed, or C) It's a bug.

I tend to think it is B or C. This weekend I plan to get a few of my friends and do test hours on the explore missions to see what still gives what.

Personally, I disagree with your choice to put A Taste of Home down under the PvE section. I'd expect it to be up with the other MemAlpha Diplo Missions. It was one of the eight new missions added just for the FDC. I mean it's still a story, it's not much of one, but it is. Just my thought/opinion.

Regardless, you've done a fantastic job on this guide. Thank you and Well done!

And since I like to be the type to give my opinions, if any of you are curious as to my overall experience with the FDC, give this thread a read:

TBH, I got back and forth on it. What decided me is that the story line missions are actually Diplomatic type things, saving people, stopping conflict, etc. Taste of home is just a fed ex mission.

I'll likely re-do my formatting once more when they come out with one of the new mission type.

I've been alting recently so they can do the Weekly Missions, and while on them I play them a bit. I look forward to your updated guide, thanks!

I figure maybe eventually I'll make a "Ambassador Only" character. So I've been logging which of the "Pre-made" missions are non-combat and give FDX. So as I find them, I'll post them here, I assume that's ok?

Oh, and here's one that *SHOULD* give FDX, but does not:
Mission Giver: Commander Samuel Winters (ESD)
Misison: Patrol the Kassae Sector (Lt 7)
SubMission: Secure Cernan System
Scan some Wreakage.
FDC Value: 0 FDX.

For what it's worth, I reported it as a bugged mission, tkt #968,445.
