Making "Scans" Great Again

Matt_DeckerMatt_Decker ✭✭✭✭✭
In the vein of offering suggestions, one idea is to make it so we can find more interesting/useful/unique items in scans. Similar to the Easter Egg game that can be scanned at Risa (with Riker, Wesley, and Lefler), these could be found by using the right crew and ship at the right location to scan. But, different from that game, the items scanned should be usable in the game.

My suggestion, which I made initially in another thread and was well received, was to make new legendary schematics available this way, with a small chance of scanning a unique crew member instead. Then you could repeat the scan in the same place and, over time, level up the new ship.

But I hope others will contribute other ideas for what could be found with unique scans.

Here's my specific suggestions:

Prize: 100 Schematics for the new legendary starship USS Prometheus
Frequency: Only claimable once per day
Location: Pollux IV (Hirogen location in the game since it was scanned by Seven through the Hirogen network)
Crew: Seven in Blue, Chief Engineer Torres, and Mobile Doctor
Ship: USS Voyager
Bonus: 5% chance of winning EMH Mk. 2 (Legendary - MED/ENG/SEC) instead of schematics

Prize: 100 Schematics for the new legendary starship USS Enterprise NCC-1701-B.
Frequency: Claimable multiple times a day, but only on Tuesday
Planet: Earth (where the "B" was in drydock at the beginning of Generations)
Crew: Captain Harriman, Demora Sulu
Ship: USS Enterprise NCC-1701-B (the ship would have to be introduced in a skirmish event first)
Bonus: 5% chance of winning Nexus Guinan or Dr. Tolian Soran instead of schematics

Prize: 100 Schematics for the new legendary starship USS Equinox (which should have the Scout trait)
Frequency: Only claimable once per day
Location: Mars (where all Nova-class ships were built)
Crew: Captain Ransom (CMD/SCI/DIP) and Lieutenant Burke (CMD/ENG/SEC)
Ship: Nova Class
Bonus: 5% chance of winning Nucleogenic Lifeform (Super Rare - ENG/SEC/SCI) instead of schematics

Prize: 100 Schematics for the new legendary starships USS Odyssey or USS Yamato
Frequency: Only claimable once per day
Location: Mars (where all Galaxy-class ships were built)
Crew: Leah Brahms
Ship: Galaxy Class
Bonus: 5% chance of winning Captain Keogh or Captain Varley (Super Rare - CMD/SEC/DIP) instead of schematics

Prize: 100 Schematics for the new legendary starship USS Phoenix
Frequency: Only claimable once per day
Location: Vulcan (where the Phoenix was built)
Crew: Captain Picard and Transporter Chief O'Brien (Uncommon - ENG/CMD/DIP)
Ship: USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D
Bonus: 5% chance of winning Captain Maxwell (Legendary - CMD/SEC/ENG) instead of schematics
Fleet: Starship Trista
Captain Level: 87
VIP Level: 12
Unique Crew Immortalized: 453
Collections Completed: Vulcan, Ferengi, Borg, Romulan, Cardassian, Uncommon, Rare, Veteran, Common, Engineered, Physician, Innovator, Inspiring, Diplomat

  • I would support making scans more relevant to the game again. I like the schemes idea. As the creative gene skipped me, I look forward to other options in the thread too.

  • How about Sisko as a prophet at DS9 could be a 5* ?
