Defensive Alliance Mission Broken?

Post by Orbion » Thu Mar 03, 2016 1:08 am

Hi:

I'm playing Freelance on the "Defensive Alliance" mission, but every time I talk with Bar-Zhon, there are no mission-specific dialogs to initiate negotiation. I tried several times, until the Bar-Zhon "basically love us" but there's still no way to initiate negotiations. Am I missing something?

Note: in the previous genetic samples mission, I attacked the Coalition to get their samples, and in the process I already captured the Coalition Computer, in case that makes a difference.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for reviving Starflight!

Yes, unfortunately it's a scripting bug -- the script only executes if you do not have a coalition computer in inventory -- I've corrected the bug on this side and will roll it up with a number of other things for the next patch, but for now you'll need to jettison it and obtain one when prompted.

Thanks! Would it also work to just sell the Coalition artifact to the Starbase, and then buy it back later?
