   You need to keep hunting for it. The traces that drop, and whether they will drop, are random. You won't 'find' one anywhere specific. Sorry. Ishaka 02:57, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
Might be some on the exchange. Have you looked there? --Drmike 20:55, 8 February 2011 (UTC)
There's actually 3 listed currently. Of course the cheapest one is half million.... --Drmike 00:20, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
I just picked up another one so I have like 4 of them now myself. If you want, I can let you have a couple of them for less than the going rate. Someone's going to ahve to point me to how to do player to player trades though. --Drmike 01:01, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
When you stand face to face, right click on the character and choose "trade". Regards, --RachelGarrett 16:39, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. There's no way to email an exchange, is there? I;m time limited and it's hard for me to schedule a mutual time to meetup. Just asking in general. --Drmike 18:00, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Interesting way to make ECs[edit source]

Got curious. I took all my extra rare particle traces (I kept one of each for the time being. Had about 40 to sell) and listed them on the Exchange at 80% of the current lowest price. Made 6.9 million ECs in about 10 minutes with all but 3 sold. The irony is the cheapest ones are sitting there.

I gather this is the normal course of farming in this game? --Drmike 01:55, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

It's a popular way to farm, either for energy credits or for helping you or your fleet craft items. If you had sold at the lowest price, it may take a little longer but it'd have netted you an additional 1.7 million ECs. --MatthewM 02:17, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
I was thinking it as an experiment. I've listed stuff before at the current lowest and 5-6 days later, they're still there usually. Had some Mark 2 phaser arrays that sold right off. That was weird. --Drmike 12:12, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
I'd rather be using mine to make equipment myself. That lovely Mk XI very rare equipment. Cept for the antiproton ground weapons I can't make. Oh well. Just a reason to keep scraping emblems together :) Ishaka 02:57, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
I'm still a lowly LC. I'm still using Mk 2-4 stuff. I did get some Mk X-XI stuff during the Q drops though. I just shoved them into the bank for later on. Of course now I want to find something to spend the money on. --Drmike 12:12, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

Drop location for rares[edit source]

Got me curious. I was farming within the Delta Volanis sector just to see what I would pick up and got like 3 Metreons. (Hopefully they'll still be there. The STO servers are up and down currently.) I know the regular Data Samples are tied to specific locations. Are the rares also? I mean I know I've picked up the Chrons before but I believe I got those on mission on or going to a planet. Do they assign for those survey missions as well? Thanks --Drmike 20:54, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Answered my own question. Now that they're back up, I poked around Delta Volanis for about 90 minutes and picked up 2 Betas, and 1 each of Dekyon, Meth, and Met. I don't see a patern so I guess it;s pretty much random when it comes to rares. --Drmike 00:21, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

Redirect the Redirect?[edit source]

I know I'm being picky here, but they are called Particle Trace not Particle trace, so why does one redirect to the other, shouldn't it be in reverse? BrooklynKnight 23:32, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

I'm fairly sure guidelines for article titles are that they should follow standard English capitalization rules. Both 'particle' and 'trace' are common nouns, and so shouldn't be capitalized. The first P is only capitalized as its the first letter of a sentence. --Zutty 12:20, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
