Quick Task: Away We Go

UPDATE: TinyCo has verified that Frame of Mind Part 5 is when this will trigger.

Hey there Tribblemakers!

Sorry for the delay on this one, been curled up in a corner on meds trying to make it until my flight out in a few hours.

Once you go aboard the Enterprise (as this wouldn’t trigger for me in Quahog), you will be prompted by Peter for a mini quest titled “Away We Go”. THIS IS A TIMED QUEST! (I am still verifying if there is a trigger. I had just passed Frame of Mind Part 6 & 7 in my game.)Away We Go

The Mini Quest asks you to send Characters out on TWO Missions:

Starfleet Peter on a Mission to Wai Iota iV (6 Transporter Energy/ 8hrs)

Starfleet PeterWai Iota IV

 

 

Ferengi Mort, Riker, and Geordi on a Mission to Oh’Nos (2 Transporter Energy/ 3hrs)

Ferengi Mort Riker GeordiOh'Nos

 

If you complete BOTH missions within 14hrs, you will be awarded 5 Clams.Away We Go Timer

Away We Go Clam Award

 

So if you have the Transporter Energy and the time, give it a try and see what happens. If you still want to do this Mini Quest but want to wait for the Materials to do it, try not to tap on Peter at all to trigger the Missions. Some readers have reported that it still worked with Peter in a group of others and not just alone. 

Did you trigger the quest yet? If so, are you going to be able to complete it? If you have already completed one or both parts, what items were you awarded? Let us know.

Edo HerbertSide Note: It is really hilarious, but for some reason Herbert is wandering around in the clothing from a race of people in Star Trek. They were called the Edo. People from Rubican III who wore strange looking white outfits. “Friendly” bunch to say the least. You can see more information on them in Star Trek: The Next Generation, Season 1, Episode: Justice.

Edo People


Chocolate BarDrop rates seem to be changing, so check your Character combos again in the Transporter and you may see some better chances for items like Chocolate.


 

Kronos New The look of Kronos has also changed in the game.

  1. I did the trip to Wai Iota IV first and got the last 4 chocolate bars I needed for Deanna Troi. The quest completed upon sending the Crew to Oh’No’s. You don’t have to have them come back to get your clams. So if you do the trip to Oh’no’s first, you could clear the quest in 3 hours.

  2. Can we go ahead and start these missions when the part 4 FoM is almost finished and get ahead of the time and one of the missions finishe right after this pops up or is it the actual sending that considers it done?

  6. I’m about ready for this quest to start , but I realized that 8 transporter energy at the nerfed rate of 2 every 10 hours was totally not worth a measely 5 clams.

    did they come up with this quest to drain away some of the Tranporter Energy we made with the room switch exploit?

  10. I got this timed mission last night too, i must’ve finished questline tasks at the same time to trigger it, cant remember which. I hadn’t seen edo Herbert yet, but that is frigging hilarious! I noticed at the same, the droprates at the planets changed, also the rec room had changed to 10 hours already. Wondering if that was maybe an added “apology” to players in a way.

    While doing the two away missions for the mini quest, i got the last dictionaries for klingon Chris and (using K.C.) my first chocolates for troi!

    I got my 2nd 4 chocolates from my 2nd away mission overnight, hopefully 2 more missions and I’ll have Troi late tonight!

    As always great job Bunny and Alissa! You two are the best!

    With the rate of the transporter energies NOT dropping, and in order to finish the task to send Peter on Mission Wai Iota IV in 7 hours is next to impossible! I’ve contacted TinyCo about the drop rate, and all they have to say is that there isn’t any fault on the drop rate. I have sent my characters in the transporter, and NOT a single chocolate bar has dropped! GRRRRRRRRRRRR😡😡😡😡😡

    • I know the feeling about the chocolate bars. I found a combo that should help you. Send Geordi, Worf (if you have him) and Klingon Chris (in that order) down to the planet. When they return, they should give you chocolate bars every time. It worked for me. Try it and let me know. 🙂

  23. Noooo they made rec rooms a ten hour build! Seriously not cool. The one way to make this phase bearable has been removed. They didn’t change build times for any other rooms just the one they know we need. Smh tinyco.

  24. I have been noticing Herbert walkin around in that, occassionally it flickers back to his robe tho. I thot his robe was maybe glitching somehow, but this totally makes sense I guess.

    I was checking the Star Trek guys facebooks and notice the silloquette of Guinan (Whoopie Goldberg) so Im guessing she is a future premium character. Also isnt there a Klingon Meg, whihc phase will she be (premium somehow?)?

    I play on the ipod, so far pretty successfully despite it crashing alot. I sent a blimp on a time travel and i couldnt access my game for like 2 days last week. So im scared to send it again. Ive noticed my space background seems broken on the Enterprise but since this has started The enterprise has been the stable-est its ever been. I barely crash when Im on it now. Before clicking anybody/room was a risk. Hopefully it remains this way as my good PC is having issues and I cant use bluestacks to play this. My current PC apparently doesnt have enough RAM to install bluestacks.

    • It is a shame as I only found out about the loop hole this morning, but (and I’m not wanting to defend Tiny Co here) it does seems to make sense that the Rec Room that drops transporter energy would take 10 hours to build, after all the Super Rad Cargo Bay has always taken 10 hours to build and that drops synthesiser ore.

      At least I got 24 hours use of the loop hole and with using characters and other rooms and the research centre I built up enough energy for three trips to try to get the chocolate for Deanna

    • It does not bit the dust. The loophole still works. It is still dropping 100% of the time. All that Tiny has done is adjust the rate. From 20 per day down to 4 per day – a more sensible number.

      • Well, that sucks. With the bad drop rates on the chocolate the only chance we had was to do a lot of transporter missions. Without the room swap method there is no way to get enough Transporter Energy. TinyCo needs to be honest and just make Deana a Premiun character because, with this change, she is impossible to get without using MANY clams. During past events I’ve tried to not get impatient about drop rates because TinyCo always seemed to come thru when they saw a problem and fix it. This time they are letting us down big time. JMHO.

Seems a bit rough at start as we slowly gain access and Characters, but as it progresses… more help ALWAYS comes. That is how the game always plays out. Hang in there. I am sure we will see more help here in the not so distant future. 😉

        • Until this morning (UK time) I would have agreed, but I have noticed that suddenly the chance if chocolate has improved from ‘ok’ to ‘likely’ by just sending Geordi and Worf on the mission, so much so that today I’ve sent them twice and both times they dropped chocolate and dilithium. I’ve just sent them for another try overnight so hopefully I’ll be lucky and be three for three when I log back on in the morning :/

          I just need 4 more books for Klingon Chris and they I can hopefully relax collecting energy for the replicator items until the bridge unlocks on the next warp core upgrade.

  29. I unlocked the task but will not be able to complete it. When I clicked Peter this morning he had a exclamation point that sent him do drop a captain’s log. After he started that one another exclamation point popped up, which turns out to be this task. However, with him currently busy pooping and Wai Iota being an 8 hour trip there is no way for me to complete it in time. I could speed up his current task, but it costs more than the 5 clams I would get for the timed task.

    • This is almost exactly what happened to me. I triggered Away We Go while Peter was dropping a captain’s log and while Geordi was similarly occupied. I did the math and decided that there was no way I could complete the task in time without spending 10 clams to speed up a task.

Instead it looks like everything is scaled up resulting in some pixelation and general fuzziness of the graphics.

  40. It’s probably important to note that you don’t have to actually complete the second trip to collect the clams. That is, if you do the 3-hour trip and then find you have less than 8 hours on the clock you can still get the clams by sending Peter to Wai Iota. It awards the prize when you activate the trip, not when you complete it.

    Also, the combo of Worf, Klingon Chris and Geordi is now showing all six light bars lit up for chocolate on the trip to Wai Iota. I sent them but they aren’t back yet.

  41. I don’t know if Herbert may have bitten off more than he can chew. Admittedly, the Edo are sexual promiscuous, but any crime that is commited rates the death penalty. So Herbert’s particular sexual preference might lead him to meeting up with the Mediators.

Too bad I really liked collecting the five prizes to get the big one. Not saying I don’t like clams but it is quite a small amount considering what they charge for characters.
