So I've been running the Pi Canis missions lately and notice in the Kern system, sometimes the fed ship orbiting the satellite shoots and blows it up before I even target it. Surely my Hegh'ta isn't that scary that they start randomly hitting phaser banks in a panic

On a serious note, it seems there is a problem with the beam fire at will mechanism here. While it does kind of make the repetative missions somewhat more humorous, I'd rather destroy the communications satellites with my own final volley.

Anyone else noticing this?

FYI, it is only the fed escorts that like to blow up their own sats. They've been doing it since the sorties launched and they seem to enjoy it so I just grin and let them have their fun.

Yes, it does just seem to be the escorts. I just never noticed it before, although I never spent so much concentrated time grinding for samples before the big crafting screw due in Dec 1st...

It is not an error of the FAW mechanic.
Those sats are actually Klingon sats (just look at them).
They were recycled from Federation patrols specifically the "Kern System Patrol"

http://www.stowiki.org/Mission:_Kern_System_Patrol

and since we Klingons can't even get an actual polished mission, they put in
Federation ships that consider their own recycled Klingon sats as hostile and
therfore shoot them when they activate FAW.
Had they put in Federation sats it would have

1. not looked recycled
2. not looked dumb because Klingons have to shoot Klingon sats
3. the Federation ships would not shoot what are supposedly their own sats

Ah. This makes perfect sense. How could I not have suspected this in the first place? <sighs>

Sometimes things can hide in plain sight.

Seems like it wouldn't be a huge hassle to switch the Traelas Mission & Kern Mission satellites around for the Kilngons - this would seem to make much more sense but oh well, can't have everything I guess.
