Data samples are inventory items the player collects while scanning anomalous readings either in space or on the ground. Their primary use is to serve as 'ingredients' for crafting, although they can also be used in assignments given by the scientist in the Engineering Lab aboard a player's ship. In addition to basic data samples, rare particle traces can also be obtained from scanning anomalies. They are required for crafting Very Rare items at Memory Alpha or Qo'noS.

Types of Data Sample[edit | edit source]

There are six grades of data samples, each represented by a different color. Each grade has a Physical, Energy and Technological Data Sample. There are also 10 types of particle trace.
