Prospective Posted December 4, 2004 Report Share Posted December 4, 2004 Hi all. This turn I got tangible results from an EXPL order. I found some Mk3 Short Range Sensors on an alien planet. Fortunately, my fleet has cargo bays to hold them and they are safely on board. Is there any way to "reverse engineer" them in order to improve my research IN THAT PARTICUALR field? I suspect the answer is no, but I had to ask. If no, shouldn't there be some order that will allow scientists to use the newly found discovery to aid in reasearch. Some kind of order to issue, maybe RESAT for Research Alien Technology? Empire scientists would disassemble a unit (rendering the unit inoperable, of course) for a chance at increasing research in that field (SR sensor technology in this case)? I don't think it would unbalance the game as there is a finite number of units that were found, and they would be consumed during research. AND I'm not saying an automatic breakthrough, just a roll at potential RP's being added to the category of the item being researched. Any thoughts on this?
