Odd...I just did that one tonight with one of my friends. We got past the vast majority of the Gorn (you do know you can go outside the white circle right? And there are no Gorn outside that circle?), disabled the generators, then easily killed the captain, without using expose/exploit at all. Sounds like you had a bug of some kind, were you teamed when you started the mission?

You brought up a good point. You can go around a lot of stuff in this game if you want to (for now). When I start to have a rough time, I take a look around see how I can do it differently.

I just did this mission last night and found it to be the same as the OB.

I just went for the 3 consoles I had to disable. I didn't try to rush past groups. If they were close to the path I took them out. A medical tricorder BO is very useful.

The amount of Gorn on the map is amazing but if you stick to the path it is doable.

This is an amazingly tough mission. I'm utterly stuck. Don't stop dying. Can't even find the damn towers.

The one (1) I did find was the tower placed DIRECTLY BEHIND YOU ON BEAM DOWN (wtf is that about?).

No idea where the rest are. Is this one of those mission you need to wait until you're super high level and come back for, or at least wait for a decent wiki site to post maps of where the damn towers are. This one is so not fun.

Are you stupid? Open your map. There are three sections joined to the centre. You have to disable three shield generators. Go figure.

I did what some people above me have done - go around the outside. Makes it a little easier. And really, it isn't 'amazingly tough'. Just think things through and don't go charging in Leroy Jenkins style.

Look around in the sky, you see big laser beams. At 1 end of the beam is the centre, at the other is the console you need to disable

But, the entire active zone is ALWAYS full of wandering Gorn that constantly respawn, so you have to try and sneak past them.

Now, after 29 tries, I somehow manage to kill the captain, beamed back to my ship, then dissabled their hostage ship. When all's done, I'm asked to leave the sector, and the message even says "your mission is complete." But instead of getting my reward, I get the chance to "CONTINUE: ANCIENT CLAIMS" and have to start all over again.

I HATE THIS LEVEL!!!
I had exactly the same experience with this mission. No way in hell am I going back and doing it all over again because of some bug.

Still waiting for someone to actually look at the ticket I submitted several days ago.

Mission was not that bad.

The way I do it is to go the center and clear the patrols around it. And then I kill my way out to a tower, following the road, and then back to the center. Repeat that 2x more and it is time for the captain. Focus fire on him. And off to space for the hostage ship.

Resurrecting this thread, as the problem still exists.

I've killed off the Gorn captain, was told to go to space and disable the hostage ship, then cleared to leave the system. But somehow the mission's log did not acknowledge that I killed the captain and I had the option to continue "Ancient Claims". Tried that three times but it never worked.

Really Annoying bug!
