I can't seem to find a tactical console. is there any missions that offer one as a reward or are common as a loot drop? (BTW i'm running an escort, my char is LT 7 and my Tac officer is still basic level)

Is there an NPC somewhere that sells them (i saw one guy that offered them for badges, but that seemed like more work than it was worth)??

Also is there anyone that has extra to sell? for a low price? spoke to one guy and he wanted 10k energy which i don't have.

Thanks

I got mine as an item for destroying an enemy. Never seen one for sale or as a reward.

There is a quest in the first 10 levels that offers a +7.5 disruptor console as a reward.

You can also find them on the exchange, as drops, and from exploration vendors. A Mk I one doesn't take much, just doing 2 of the exploration missions.

I just did a quest around your level this morning that offered three consoles (one of each).. the tactical console gave +disruptor weapons if I remember correctly. Unfortunatley, I don't remember the quest, but want to say it came from Admiral Quinn.

Give it some time though if you don't find one.. I have a feeling that they'll be readjusting the loot tables again, as they're a bit sparse right now (in beta we were getting tons of loot drops.. so they just about cut them off.. hopefully it will swing back the other way a bit in the near future, until they get it just right.)

You can also use Exploration badges to get them at SOL Starbase, where you get your new ships as well......

Check with the NPC vendors in the ship requisition room up the stairs in the Ship Yard at Star Base 1.

Haven't found one myself yet. Loot tables seem to be a little off for space combat; I would have to agree, as I've only had one drop in the last 3 or more missions. I did get some decent drops early on.. but everything has been sparse from there. Ground drops seem to be allright; not too much, just a little at a time. Though I've found some missions have next to nothing; and others help pay the bill's in between, as a way of making up for it. Space combat doesn't seem to have this advantage.

Mission rewards, however, seem to be almost consistently space oriented; which allows for a correction to the poor drops there. ..excepting, the missions which drop the same loot. I had two Photon Grenade kits; until I sold one. Early on for the first; and the second much later. Could have changed that, I suppose; as I think the first reward was optioned for Tactical, on mine.

A little detracted from the OP; but valid to some degree, I think

Cheers,

You can buy them for exploration credits at the SOL starbase, in the room accesse from above the 'ship customization' area where you buy new ships.

IIRC, it takes about 75-ish exploration thingies to buy a console, so one 'tour' of visiting 3 systems.
