I had the same issue just yesterday. Even though the Admiral told me to see Winters, I had to talk to Quinn a second time, before I could do so. Make sure you turn in all open beginner’s quests with Quinn, close his dialog and talk to him again—should work. I hope this helps.
Sure Sometimes its a proximity thing ;where you have to get in the right sweet spot in front of his Nibs Desk.
Or a momentary blurp or lag. [Oh,Hi Raven].. I half expected my KB to look like it did after i picked up BF2
and have the FPS keys worn off.. trying to remember the keys again. Hope its working for you now.
Quinn the Admiral MAn's busy.. I have expect them to sneak in SIMS emo bubbles for what hes really thinking about..Like Lt Laurel up in ship Requisitos or.. Undines.
I've been having this issue over the past couple days. The F key was registering at all with some of the pop-ups when I was doing the exploration mission. I just thought it was my computer being sluggish.
good point in Champions on line the Z key was used for interactive So the Two IPs dint have complete compatibility in how they do things. I am sure it was a matter of the volume of work and the push for STO
which had a much short DEV calendar and wasn't delayed like Champions was .. IT worked fine for sometime here.. I was only having that trouble on Foundry for triggers i set too tight.
So to Troubleshoot its something recently changed i n the updates that was an unforeseen glitch..
Should be a bit easier to track down.. and fine tune..
Was Admiral Quinn standing on his Chair?
Did Admiral Quinn get moved from his area of comfort by a Engineers Shield or Device?
Did Admiral Quinn get spooked by a Devidian or Spawning Security Escort.. The Tri Enhancer should not work in his office so a Devidian should not appear and slay npcs in that area.. maybe the Shard that instance is stored on was degrading or error checking when you tried it?
