Are you sure you weren't headed for it, or at least very close to it? From everything I've read here on the forums, the DSEs are essentially supposed to "ignore" you and not follow you unless you go near one.
Maybe i was close, but how helpful is the immunity if i have to evade them anyway ?
Sure would not mind cryptic input on tis. As of now the use I see for it is placing it on a fleet member who is lower so we can get them into Episode missions which scale down to their level. Aside from that it does not operate as a logical skill should and does need to be fixed.
That doesn´t work. I got Diplomatic Immunity from another player and was attacked by a DSE 5 seconds later. :p
I actually don't think DI works. I used it on a lowbie while in sector outside of Memory Alpha. He took off and a DSE veered towards him and gobbled him up as I watched (I could almost hear the 'Jaws' music). Maybe I beamed him the wrong papers, or something...? I felt bad for a few seconds.
This is something that should definitely apply to self, not just other players (assuming it works, that is). I agree that dev input would help clear this up.
