# 1 Does Memory Alpha work yet?
01-30-2010, 09:59 AM
In beta, nobody was able to figure out how to open up (unlock) the other Memory Alpha scientists besides Commander Romaine, in order to gain acess to the higher-level gear. Additionaly, as far as I could tell, the developers never addressed this issue or acknowledged that it was a known issue. So either it is broken, in which case it was hopefully fixed for the Head Start, or it is working just fine, but nobody knows how it works, in which case we need that information.

Has anyone been able to unlock the other scientists at Memory Alpha, or are we all still stuck on Commander Romaine?

Devs, can you please shed some light on the mysteries of memory Alpha?

Thanks.

I'd love to know the answer to this. As far as I can tell there is no crafting, it just buying from Com. Romaine. If this is it, it is terrible, and definately NOT crafting. There is no direction as to what is expected to be able to do anything.

Crypic can't you do better?

I know of a few friends in my fleet that were able to unlock access to the other researchers, but they were neither aware of how they did it or when it was achieved.

There was no message, the NPC didn't give him a quest, nothing.

Further more, we tryed to figure out how they had done it, we did a few experiments.

Here's what we found:
  • Crafting 100 large hypos did not unlock anything.
  • Crafting one of everything did not unlock anything.
  • You don't need to creat everything in order to advance
  • You don't need to use one of every type of collected data to advance.

Wow, there's a lot that we know we know, and most of it it tells us what we can't do. It doesn't leave a lot left that it could be, unfortunately, there's a lot left that it could STILL be and that's what we need to figure out.

it's the "Do stuff" that we want to find out though.

Does each item have a value, and after reaching a quota do you move on? Is the quota random?

Do you have to turn in specific kinds of data or a certain amount?

Do you have to be a certain rank first?

Does she discriminate against you if you have facial horns?

What's going on under the hood, that's what people want to know.


and if she actually gave you a quest to move one or something, then that's awesome, because during OB she did no such thing from what my fleet mates could figure out.
